*Pokémon! With **Karl Nibbelink*
Come and play the Pokémon game! This club is open to kids who already know
how to play as well as kids who would like to learn how. We will spend the
first 1-2 sessions learning and reviewing strategies for putting together a
winning deck, and getting the rules of the game down. The next 2-3 session
will be spent playing lots of games together. Every child will receive
their own deck at the first session! Kids can also bring their own cards
(with parent permission). *(K – 2nd –10 Kids)*

*Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with Kallie Stenman*

Dear Muggle-borns,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School
of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Your first term will include the following
subjects: Spells, Potions, Transfiguration, and Care of Magical Creatures.

Maxima. Term begins in February. Sincerely, Professor Minerva McGonagall *(1st

*Unicycle Club with Juan Losada*

Join us for some serious fun on one wheel!
This class is designed for first and second graders who want to learn how
to ride a unicycle. We'll teach you the skills needed to ride a unicycle
and have fun in the process. We will also play games and do fun physical
activities. Helmets are required for this activity and wrist guards are
recommended. *(1st – 2nd – 10 Kids)*
***Some Madison Unicyclists from Lapham and Marquette will be helping out
and demonstrating some tricks.***

*Fridays – 2:40 to 3:50*

*Make Good Stuff! With Simon Puleo*

This club will focus on making "good stuff" as inspired by Charles and Ray
Eames.  In each class we will talk about how things are designed and how
things work.  The interactive discussion will be followed by a project
using a mix of new and recycled materials.  Some of the projects we are
planning are flashlights, simple robots, the 'Eames Elephant' , and other
maker inspired creations.  We may also incorporate animation and dance as
time and interest permits. *(1st – 2nd – 8 Kids)*

*Spark Your Spanish… uno, dos, tres! With Anne Garvey Shah and Annalee Good*

Foreign language is fun!  Learn some very basic Spanish vocabulary and
useful phrases. All taught through songs, movement, stories, art and
games. *(2nd
8 Kids)*
