What’s Happening Right Now…

Elementary and Middle School: A student lays out the pin map of North America. A large group of friends sit quietly and observe. The student tells the group, “Canada is north of the United States” Upper el and middle school students discuss hanging a plant wall in the garden. They are making big garden plans for September.

Amanda’s Primary: Two students unroll the One Hundred Chain mat and lay out the work. The chain stretches across the entire classroom! Each number label  is sorted in numerical order then matched with the coordinating chain. Students gather rocks on the playground. Each student examines the rock, identifying its color and texture. Finally, the rocks are sorted into three categories; metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary.

Infant:  An infant has discovered how to slide on her left knee while using her right foot to inch forward.  She can crawl now!  She moves this way towards a ball, and as she touches it with her knee, it rolls away.  She follows after it, looks back at her guide and smiles, perhaps feeling proud of the distance she has created?  She moves toward her friend, finds another ball, pauses, and smiles at her friend's sounds, and makes her own sound.  Then, she continues to move after the two balls with confidence and curiosity!

Toddler: A toddler stoops down to look at something small in the corner of the playground.  Another friend notices, and stoops down next to him to watch.  Another friend shows up, and then another.  They gather around and watch, pointing and whispering.  One friend shouts, "Look, it's the Itsy-Bitsy Spider!"  The friends clap, and continue to watch the spider make her web. 

Venessa’s Primary: The students are hard at work and gearing up for the last week of summer. A PI student scrubs the easel while another polishes the thousands cube from the bank. A PIII student helps another friend count the cube chain of 9. Another student carefully cuts pieces of cucumber for his friends to enjoy during snack. All of this hard work can make one hungry…..
