How Are We S.T.R.E.A.M.ing @ EVO?
How do you keep 45+kids engaged for 3-4 hours a day? You STREAM! We engage our youth in activities that introduce and teach them Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math & Movement. When you visit, you’ll hear Mr. Steve excitedly reading aloud “Wayside School is Falling Down” to a group of attentive 3rd- 5th graders hanging onto his every word and making predictions about what is going to happen next. You’ll also see Ms. Janel with a group of Pre K & Kindergarten students making their own play dough out of items you can find in your kitchen cupboards. If you were to peek over to Mr. Assegid’s group, you’ll see a group of 1st and 2nd graders enhancing their thinking skills as well as learning geometry through origami. Follow us on FB to see other ways we STREAM here at EVO!
