MindCraft Afterschool Learning Lab
1st Grade – 8th Grade
Homework time can be stressful, create tension at home, and elicit tears and frustration.
We have designed the after school MindCraft Learning Lab as an opportunity for students to have a place to complete their homework with the support of a trained learning facilitator.
Every session begins with 1:1 conversation with the student – prioritizing assignments and setting goals for their time at the Lab. Our facilitator will provide guidance and check for quality and accuracy for all completed assignments. When all goals are met, students engage in educational games that support math literacy and reading and then the fun begins. If time allows, your kids will be allowed to explore tinkering, gaming, coding, 3D printing (for grades 4-8) and keyboarding in a self-directed and exploratory manner.
Parents can utilize this learning opportunity to support students with homework, studying, organizational skills and special projects. Just send your child to the Lab with their homework and school assignments, and we’ll send them back with a feeling of accomplishment, completed and checked assignments, and time to be at home without homework stress.
Daily sessions run from 3:00 to 5:30 pm Monday-Friday.
