SAIL Box FAQs


Why focus on Concept Based Learning?

Each SAIL Box centers around a concept rather than a specific topic or standard. Understanding a broad concept provides the foundation for deepening understanding in all of the topics, ideas and standards that fall within its umbrella. For example, “Movement” is a concept at the base of learning about energy transference, the water cycle, data growth, verbs and so much more. By providing opportunities for our children to understand what “movement” means, looks like and feels like in different contexts, we are giving them a foundation for the many times they will encounter it as they are learning.

What’s in a box?

  • 4 Activities
Every box features 4 unique activities integrated with different art forms, including visual arts, movement, music, theater, writing, and media arts. Each month’s activities offer opportunities to learn more about these art styles all while gaining a deeper understanding of the concept.
  • Artist Spotlight
Collect a new artist card each month featuring a diverse set of artists from different backgrounds and art styles. Artist Spotlight cards include information about the artist’s background, art style and works of art. These are perfect for displaying gallery style or adding to a ring as they are collected.
  • Vocabulary Cards
Learn new art terms each month with vocabulary cards! Every box includes full color, double sided vocabulary cards that can be used with the activities and then displayed or added to a ring.
  • Printed Materials and Art Supplies
It is important to us that all materials included in your box are high quality and long lasting. All printed materials in your box are professionally printed on high quality, heavy weight, glossy paper so they can withstand little fingers and messy art projects. Every item you need to complete an activity is included in your box. Many items can be used more than one time!

What are the targeted ages for SAIL Box?

SAIL Box is designed with children aged 4-10, or grades PK-5, in mind. We also believe that younger children can do these activities with adult help, and truly all of our activities are designed for interaction with the adults in their lives. There is so much rich conversation that can be inspired by sharing these activities as a family.
