Backyard Classroom

Academics with a Twist

Welcome to our Backyard Classroom led by real-life doctor of animal behavior and biology DOC FLEENER! We offer daily classes for grades 1-3 that cover a different topic every day (animals, science, math, plants, and puzzles). Each class exercises multiple common core standards of math, language, and science in the context of a exhilarating interactive ADVENTURES that build over the course of the week. Class topics stay the same every week, but content will change so you can keep signing up week after week!

“Where we’re going, we don’t need to break distancing codes!” – The Doc

How it Works

  1. Class will meet at 9:00 am PT every weekday for warm-up Earth Ninja games! We’ll start discussing our daily topic and exploring projects from 9:30-10:30 am PT and finish our morning with our ongoing role-playing adventure that will exercise our wits and knowledge from 11:00 am-12:00 pm PT.  Everyone will get a 30-minute break in between activities for snack and social! 
  3. Daily Topics: 
  4. – Monday: The Animal Kingdom
  5. – Tuesday: Science
  6. – Wednesday: Math
  7. – Thursday: Botany
  8. – Friday: Escape Room Review 
 All of our classes are interactive ZOOM video calls and you only need to show with paper, a pencil, and big questions about the world. 

When registering, be ready to commit the following level of supervision:
