Classical Kids Events

Kids Forum - Bethel
DATE(S): Oct 27, 2014
TIME(S): 3:30-5:15
LOCATION: See description for location information.
AGES: All ages
DESCRIPTION: For more than a decade, Classical Kids has organized this monthly gathering that allows students of all ages to present some of the subjects they study at home. This forum is a time for kids to share their insights and inspire each other. Children are invited to share any of their ongoing work; for example, a child may recite a poem, share a book report and illustration, or share something interesting about a history subject. Children studying music are welcome to bring their instruments to play.

Student presentation running time suggestions:

  • Children Pre-K-K: 2 minutes
  • Children Grades 1-6: 6 minutes
  • Children Grades 7-12: 12 minutes

Each Forum will include one presentation that is 15 minutes in length. A presentation with this duration must be reserved in advance. Children of any age are eligible for such a time slot, but only once per child per school year, please. To reserve such a slot for your child, please contact Diane Speed at email address below.

This fall, the Kids Forums will be held in a smaller space, so seating is limited. We're holding the Forum in a space in a cottage on the Speed's property.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend.

The Classical Kids homeschool group welcomes all homeschoolers regardless of race, creed, or religion.

For tips and suggestions of how to best prepare your child for a presentation at the Kids Forum, see document: Preparing Your Child for the Kids Forum, in the CK Publications area of the library. The link is listed below.
