Registration is under way for the Jan. 25 Super Saturday sessions for preschoolers through high school juniors, sponsored by Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment.

Four-year-olds through kindergartners can take part in "Rhyming to the Beat," an adventure in early reading skills set to rhythm. The class, led by Beth Hicks, will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Jan. 25 at Baylor's Piper Child Development Center, 315 Washington Ave.

First through third graders will discover the history of local transportation in "On the Go!," from 9 a.m. to noon at Fort House Museum, 503 S. Fourth St. Students will learn about Waco's first public transportation services, meet a mounted park ranger and enjoy a train-stop snack from many years ago. Marsha Hendrix will serve as instructor.

A theater workshop called "Dr. Seuss in Performance" will be held for fourth and fifth graders from 9 a.m. to noon at Baylor's Hooper-Schaefer dance-movement studio. Led by Chris Day, students will learn to use their voice and body to make Dr. Seuss poems come to life. They will present their poems for family and friends during the last 10 minutes of class.

"Claymation" for sixth through eighth grade students will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the room 200 computer lab in the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus. Teri Lloyd will show students how to make clay figures spring to life just like in the movies, by using digital cameras, Spin Objects software and their imagination.

Ninth through 11th graders will learn about "Power Landscape Woodcut Printing" from Lisa Davis from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Draper room 152. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Sessions for pre-school through kindergarten are $15. Classes for first graders and up are $30, which includes all lab materials and facilities fees. For more information, call (254) 710-2171 or visit
