CLASS DESCRIPTIONS 
Spring Trimester 2019 (April 1 - June 18)

MONDAY

CAPOEIRA 1 by Raízes do Brasil Capoeira
3:45pm-4:30pm, $20/class, 10 classes
Capoeira is a fantastic opportunity for kids to be exposed to a unique blend of martial arts, music, culture, and camaraderie. This fun and friendly atmosphere not only provides a challenging aerobic and acrobatic workout, but also helps kids develop their confidence and self-esteem. Classes involve movement utilizing the entire body to develop strength, coordination, and flexibility.


TUESDAY 


BALLET & TAP: Sleeping Beauty by DramaZone
3:30pm-4:15pm, $32/class, 12 classes
Children enjoy learning two styles of dance in one class through the theme of Sleeping Beauty! Taught by the experts from DramaZone, this class was created to develop strength, coordination, and rhythm, as well as grace and flexibility. We incorporate studio beginner ballet and tap exercises in an environment designed to foster a love of dance. Recommended dress: comfortable clothing, ballet slippers, and hard-soled or tap shoes.

TIMBALOOLOO MUSIC by Timbalooloo
3:30pm-4:10pm, $30/class, 12 classes
Children love stories, mysteries, suspense and fun games. They love to explore new instruments and musical traditions. In this class, all the instruments come to life as characters and actually speak through their music so that the children learn to play instruments by performing the magical act of making their instruments talk (which is essentially what every great musician does with his or her instrument)! We also tell stories about great composers ranging from Herbie Hancock to Mozart, giving them a glimpse into the cultural and historical background and making them feel more personally connected to the composers (often we show pictures of the great artists as children). We lay the groundwork for reading music by presenting an intuitive approach to pitch through games like the Pitch Switch about a cow and a bird and we develop their sense of musicality through games like our Mozart Tip-Toe game, in which children sing Mozart’s “Non Piu Andrai” aria from the Marriage of Figaro while tip-toeing and hopping around the room trying to find a hiding Mozart.

YOGA 1 by Brooklyn Beanstalk
3:45pm-4:30pm, $15/class, 12 classes

GROWING GLOCKENSPIELS IN FRENCH by Timbalooloo
4:15pm-4:55pm, $30/class, 12 classes
Growing Glockenspiels™ gives children the opportunity to really learn to play their first instrument through a unique class. They also learn to read and write music through a fun gradual process that helps make reading music intuitive. Each child gets their own Glockenspiel to keep forever and take home between classes (a glockenspiel is a xylophone-like instrument that is laid out like a piano with the black and white keys). However, at first, their Glockenspiels only have the note middle-C on them and are “one note old”. Each time the children learn how to write a note on the music paper and play a new song with it, they then get a new note, and their glockenspiel grows up (the kids say “my glockenspiel is 9 notes old today… it’s almost a teenager!”, etc). Each song is introduced through a fun story that gives historical and cultural context and a familiarity with great composers from different cultures. The children learn to write music, and when the glockenspiel has grown all the way up, it looks just like a piano, so any song that the children know on the glockenspiel is then directly transferable to piano or whatever other instrument they choose to pursue. The goal is not just to execute the correct notes, but to really understand how music works in the process. For this reason, the class is valuable both to children who have never played another instrument before and to those who are taking instrumental music lessons separately. *Please note this class will be taught in French.

We lay the groundwork for reading music by presenting an intuitive approach to pitch through games like the Pitch Switch about a cow and a bird and we develop their sense of musicality through games like our Mozart Tip-Toe game, in which children sing Mozart’s “Non Piu Andrai” aria from the Marriage of Figaro while tip-toeing and hopping around the room trying to find a hiding Mozart.

    GROWING GLOCKENSPIELS IN FRENCH by Timbalooloo
    4:15pm-4:55pm, $30/class, 12 classes
    Growing Glockenspiels™ gives children the opportunity to really learn to play their first instrument through a unique class. They also learn to read and write music through a fun gradual process that helps make reading music intuitive. Each child gets their own Glockenspiel to keep forever and take home between classes (a glockenspiel is a xylophone-like instrument that is laid out like a piano with the black and white keys). However, at first, their Glockenspiels only have the note middle-C on them and are “one note old”. Each time the children learn how to write a note on the music paper and play a new song with it, they then get a new note, and their glockenspiel grows up (the kids say “my glockenspiel is 9 notes old today… it’s almost a teenager!”, etc). Each song is introduced through a fun story that gives historical and cultural context and a familiarity with great composers from different cultures. The children learn to write music, and when the glockenspiel has grown all the way up, it looks just like a piano, so any song that the children know on the glockenspiel is then directly transferable to piano or whatever other instrument they choose to pursue. The goal is not just to execute the correct notes, but to really understand how music works in the process. For this reason, the class is valuable both to children who have never played another instrument before and to those who are taking instrumental music lessons separately. *Please note this class will be taught in French.

    GROWING GLOCKENSPIELS IN FRENCH by Timbalooloo
    4:15pm-4:55pm, $30/class, 12 classes
    Growing Glockenspiels™ gives children the opportunity to really learn to play their first instrument through a unique class. They also learn to read and write music through a fun gradual process that helps make reading music intuitive. Each child gets their own Glockenspiel to keep forever and take home between classes (a glockenspiel is a xylophone-like instrument that is laid out like a piano with the black and white keys). However, at first, their Glockenspiels only have the note middle-C on them and are “one note old”. Each time the children learn how to write a note on the music paper and play a new song with it, they then get a new note, and their glockenspiel grows up (the kids say “my glockenspiel is 9 notes old today… it’s almost a teenager!”, etc). Each song is introduced through a fun story that gives historical and cultural context and a familiarity with great composers from different cultures. The children learn to write music, and when the glockenspiel has grown all the way up, it looks just like a piano, so any song that the children know on the glockenspiel is then directly transferable to piano or whatever other instrument they choose to pursue. The goal is not just to execute the correct notes, but to really understand how music works in the process. For this reason, the class is valuable both to children who have never played another instrument before and to those who are taking instrumental music lessons separately. *Please note this class will be taught in French.

    TIMBALOOLOO MUSIC by Timbalooloo
    5:00pm-5:40pm, $30/class, 12 classes
    Children love stories, mysteries, suspense and fun games. They love to explore new instruments and musical traditions. In this class, all the instruments come to life as characters and actually speak through their music so that the children learn to play instruments by performing the magical act of making their instruments talk (which is essentially what every great musician does with his or her instrument)! We also tell stories about great composers ranging from Herbie Hancock to Mozart, giving them a glimpse into the cultural and historical background and making them feel more personally connected to the composers (often we show pictures of the great artists as children). We lay the groundwork for reading music by presenting an intuitive approach to pitch through games like the Pitch Switch about a cow and a bird and we develop their sense of musicality through games like our Mozart Tip-Toe game, in which children sing Mozart’s “Non Piu Andrai” aria from the Marriage of Figaro while tip-toeing and hopping around the room trying to find a hiding Mozart.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CLUBS

ISB offers a variety of after-school and free-period activities to support and enhance the personal, social, emotional, physical, and creative growth of our Middle School students. Sample offerings are listed below.

STUDENT COUNCIL

led by Rotana Suy & Danielle Valenti

Students can develop leadership skills and learn about fundraising to help their local and global community. The Middle Student Council is comprised of four executive positions and eight class representatives. Meetings take place once a week during lunch throughout the year. They help plan fun activities and provide volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

YEARBOOK

led by Patricia McDougall

Students will develop their design and technology skills and use their creativity as they put together the ISB yearbook. Middle School students can earn community service hours for working on the yearbook. Meetings take place once a week for 10 weeks.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETICS

International School of Brooklyn offers three athletic seasons for Middle School students, including two team sports and one individual club sport. This year, ISB is offering soccer (fall), basketball (winter), and track club (spring). The Athletics department aims to develop athletes who demonstrate good sportsmanship by showing respect to teammates, officials, and opponents. The ISB Dragons are part of a middle school athletic league called the MSAL. ISB organizes soccer and basketball games with a large community of independent schools, including schools from both Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Soccer

ISB Dragons soccer meets for three practices per week. During these sessions, students practice various techniques that improve their ability to play soccer. Students work on footwork, dribbling, passing, strategy, and teamwork during this fall season. Team members scrimmage each practice, and games are scheduled with other schools for interscholastic competition.

Basketball

ISB Dragons basketball meets for three practices a week. Student athletes run drills and activities that progressively teach the fundamentals of basketball. Skills that are focused on include agility, hand-eye coordination, ball handling, passing, catching, flexibility, conditioning and teamwork. Basketball can help develop cardiovascular endurance and develop both upper and lower body strength. Students have fun, socialize, and build teamwork. Strong relationships translate into good health. Exercising in a group also tends to lead to better continued participation. Played alone or in groups, basketball is a great sport to learn.

Track Club

Student-athletes have the opportunity to learn about the importance of cardiovascular endurance, such as their heart rate, running capacity, and how to maintain good pace when jogging. Different obstacles will be introduced to motivate and improve their abilities. A Dragons customized T-shirt will be provided to each participant.

As a P.E Teacher and Coach, I encourage students that plan to continue playing sports like soccer and basketball to join the track club.

Club Getaway 2018

This year, PE Department Head Xavier Huc led 31 6th Graders and four other chaperones (Director of Middle School Richard Brownstone and teachers Sara Fernandez Valladares, Meena Negandhi, and Patricia McDougall) to Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut, for three days and two nights of activities, games, team-building, and fun. Trips like these are especially important because 6th Grade is a major entry point for new ISB students. While many of our students have been here since Preschool or Lower School, some have just joined us in Middle School. By taking the entire grade out of town—and removing all academic pressure and outside commitments—ISB gives the new and returning students some time to acclimate to one another, build new friendships, and come back to Brooklyn as a new ensemble.

7th Grade Adventures in Monteverde, Costa Rica

Once we landed in Costa Rica, we were welcomed by our guide and we began our bus trip to Monteverde. About an hour later, we stopped to have lunch, which the students called "una comida deliciosa.” After lunch, we continued our journey, during which we marveled at the natural beauty of the countryside and spotted several animals such as cows, horses, dogs, and even goats. The bus ride was filled with exclamations of “Wow!”, “Look at that!" and "Did you see that?"

7th Grade Language Acquisition Trip to Quebec

Cette année, nos élèves de cinquième ont eu la chance de partir en voyage linguistique du 6 au 11 juin dans la province du Québec au Canada et de visiter les villes de Montréal et de Québec. Nous vous souhaitons un bon visionnage de l'album photo ci-dissous!
