Inspiring Life-long Learning for 25 Years
Please enjoy this glimpse into what our students have been learning and doing this week!
These are some of the final weeks that we will take our hike to the magical words. Spring is pushing through with bits of green! The birds have a sense of urgency for what they need to do. The children run and roll and climb and play like they always do!
This is the bunny with ears so funny!
The Sunflower Garden hiked on Tuesday and collected garbage on our way back. Along the way we also found this ball that was called the "earth ball." Stewardship of the land begins with love of the land (joy in our magic woods) and an appreciation for taking care of our green spaces. Happy Earth Day!
The fourth graders completed their animal projects on Friday! Each child wrote, illustrated and bound a five-chapter book, constructed a diorama and gave a presentation about an animal of their choosing. Today we had an animal fair. Parents, teachers and other students came to see the results of all of the hard work our class has done, and to learn more about the animals. We had a variety of animals represented—those that soar through the air, move upon the land and swim in the sea. This is the fourth grade's first major block project that involved both writing and artistic expression. They had fun, did an excellent job!
After first making garments for themselves, the eighth grade handwork students are now trying their hand at making clothing for someone else. This has included taking measurements, choosing fabric, and making patterns.
