LEVEL UP LEADERSHIP LITE!
One Wednesday each month, kids get together to learn and play! We’ll explore a different theme each month centered around a novel. Students will discuss themes and play games to encourage a love of learning and critical thinking. Crafts, activities, and games galore! All supplies for crafts and activities are provided, but students must find and read the novel themselves. Students must read the book ahead of time and be ready to discuss it in class. Note: Students will not be required to read aloud. It doesn’t matter if the novel is read personally by the student, or as an audiobook, or as a family read aloud. *Pack water and a portable lunch as we might eat outdoors.

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER. The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant.None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale — the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating — has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year’s pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.The class will discuss the pros and cons to writing a play as opposed to a story. We’ll attempt a few drama lessons and create a few short plays on the spot.
ROCKSTAR PRIZES will be awarded to students who attempt to write a two to five minute play. Bring it to class and we’ll celebrate trying hard things!
*All discussion, activities and themes will be from a Christian worldview.
Level Up Leadership is crafted to train up the next generation of leaders!
