How do you do Specials?

In my school there are MANY extra "Enrichment" classes. Our children participate in Music (Glee style) Instruments, this is where they learn to read music, Art, yes a real ART teacher is included, Science, it is so nice to have extra reinforcement, Spanish, it is fun to have a  Spanish speaking teacher on board, Computer class where they learn how to operate Office and other programs, we also have Media, aka Library and PE (everyone's favorite)!

In Science they practice using the Scientific Method, here they had to compare popcorn before and after it is popped.
In Art they use different mediums, such as clay.

It has been a long time since I blogged, so sorry about that. I have been super busy with my Master's Degree, only five more classes left until I receive my M of Ed.  I promise I will post soon, as for now this is just a quick peek into the fun "Specials" we have at our school!


  1. Our specials sound pretty much the same except for science. We have physical education, library/computer, art, music, and Spanish. I am actually the Spanish teacher and we offer it from grades 3 -6 as a special class. It's pretty rare to find public schools here in Missouri that offer Spanish in the elementary, so I'm very lucky!

  2. Kimberly,
    Many of the schools around here do not have Art or Music, we are so fortunate to have both and TWO musical specials!
    Glad you are in a good school too.
