Pencil & Dirt is a Homeschool Enrichment/ Micro school program in Fountain Inn, SC. We keep our program relatively small to make sure all our little learners can get the attention they need. Our program is designed to bring out creativity, curiosity, and movement. We follow a curriculum that includes nature based learning mixed with hands on exploration and creativity. We also include age appropriate reading, writing, math, science and social studies according to South Carolina standards. Our program is currently designed for ages 5-11 or grades K-5.
Below is a list of some of the subjects and activities we include in our program
Arts & Crafts
We explore various art media including drawing, watercolor, textured art, clay, pastels and more!
Gardening & Food
We learn about healthy food choices, fresh foods, and how food impacts our bodies. Students get to plant and watch their seeds become healthy food which we eventually use to create a healthy snack.
We explore different sports and games and keep our kids moving through play.
Children explore different instruments, tones, and beats. Piano classes are included where children learn notes, and simple songs on the piano.
Children participate in building and stem learning of various sorts.
Hands on Learning Indoor/Outdoor
Our school is focused on hands on learning. We use various manipulatives to help our students learn. We also learn by outdoor nature based learning.
