Welcome to Wells Music!

In our music classes, I believe that each student has the ability to learn to sing, dance, and play instruments. Music is a learned skill that gets better with intentional practice and guidance. During their time at Wells, students will have the opportunity to play different instruments, like recorders, Boomwhackers, guitars, hand bells, glockenspiel, and drums. Lessons are framed around the Music Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools and county curriculum guide. Wells Music follows an eclectic approach to music pedagogy, using elements from Orff, Dalcroze, Kodaly, Gordon, and Feierabend. While developing music literacy, students regularly dance, sing, and play instruments from various music styles and world cultures.

Students have a 45 minute music class each week. Most of each class will be taught using whole-group instructional techniques with ample opportunities for individual turns and feedback. All learning and skill development will be taught in a sequential child oriented way. Much game play will be included. Musical games always seek to prepare or practice a music skill content area which will enhance the child’s ability to move to, read, and write music. My goal is to to create a safe and inclusive classroom that is conducive to each student’s individualized growth as a musician and a life-long learner.

The goal of the art program at C.C.Wells Elementary School is to offer students in kindergarten through fifth grade the opportunity to develop their artistic skills by engaging them in a structured art program.  The art skills that the students learn at each grade level are taught in a sequential order so they can be used to achieve visual and artistic literacy.  The students are encouraged to express their ideas independently, allowing them to grow as self-directed learners. The curriculum focuses on allowing the students to produce quality artwork that promotes a feeling of accomplishment and global awareness. Throughout the year, the students acquire valuable skills that can be used to achieve academic success in the classroom and in life.

The goal of our Physical Education program is to help students develop health and physical literacy skills which will allow them to live active and healthy lifestyles now and in the future.

As a result of physical education instruction students will be able to do the following:

  • Apply movement principles and concepts to learning and developing motor skills and specialized movement forms.
  • Set goals and work towards a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.
  • Demonstrate responsible personal and social behaviors in and out of the physical education classroom.
  • Engage in a variety of physical activity experiences in order to understand personal enjoyment and benefits of physical activity.
  • Gain understanding of basic health literacy in order to help make choices for personal well being.

At C.C. Wells, students will be given the opportunity to participate in activities such as soccer, gymnastics, volleyball, basketball, tennis, lacrosse, hockey, baseball, the First Tee National Golf Program, and much more! Emphasis on personal development and enjoyment of physical activity will be the focus.
