____________________________________________________________________________

Venessa’s Primary
Two third-year students work on the Continent Bingo game.  One calls, “Do you have South America?”  Two friends answer yes and put their markers carefully on their cards. A second year student works on the parts of the face in Spanish. “Ojos - eyes, orejas - ears”.  A younger student serves carrots to her classmates after she and a friend had chopped them up.  “Quieras zanahoria?”.  A student classifies land, air, and water animals while another is practicing “flip” with their coat!  

Toddler

While taking off layers of outerwear after morning playtime.  A toddler notices a sticker on a guide's shirt (I voted!).  The child moves closer, touches the sticker and then their eyes grow wide with excitement.  They've just remembered there's a sticker work on the shelf!   The tray is carried over to a table and the child gets straight to business, carefully removing each colored sticker and placing it precisely where they want it on the paper.

Pre-Primary
The students bundle up before going outside to play.  They are learning how to put on their outerwear- flip a jackets, snuggle into gloves, and plop a hat right on top of your head!  An older student works on the hanging bead work, carefully counting and recounting each bead to hang them up in the correct order.  And older friend from lower el. comes in to work with students on a math work. They have a younger friend  read a number and “fetch” that number of buttons!  

Middle School
In continuing a theme of Immigration, the middle school students are  involved in lively discussions about the Italian-American experience.  They are critically analysing causes and effects of various historical events.  What does this mean to us today?  Several students  are developing their persuasive speeches to be given on Friday.  There is excitement about the return of the history timeline.  A  student  chooses a World History topic and is outlining  the “who, what, when, where, and how” before entering the event into the classroom’s virtual timeline.

Amanda’s Primary
“One of our animal puzzle controls is missing!”  Oh no! One of the students decides he will make a new control for the dinosaur puzzle.  Carefully taking each of the pieces out of the puzzle and tracing it onto a sheet of paper, a stegosaurus slowly starts to emerge from the blank page.  After carefully tracing the words for different parts of the stegosaurus, the new control is complete! Students are gathered around  a table and deeply immersed in a variety of materials--fields of paint, swatches of fabric, sewable buttons--to make a variety of puppets, sculptures, and collages!

Lower-El
Students are creating 3 dimensional cards for their much anticipated GrandOnes (and a pet…).   “I’m making a pop-up card for my cat!”, “I designed my card like the example except mine says ‘Kind is cool.’ “.  Several students finish their study on triangles as their music lessons begin.  Two students finish giving a lesson on the parts of a skeleton to a third year primary student.  There is a discussion about the songs several students want to practice for GrandDays.  What a fun and diverse group of lessons and activities on this drab and rainy day.

Infant
It's time for the 11:00 a.m. board meeting over lunch.   A group of (very) young professionals gather at their table and open their briefcases (lunchboxes) which are full of very important work (delicious food).  The first item on today's agenda: Should naps be required?  One "board member" decides the meeting has gone on for too long, signs "all done", closes their "briefcase" and moves away.  Meeting adjourned!

Upper-El
Students take a survey on their favorite story from the book, Native American Stories by Joseph Bruchac.  After they have decide on the story of choice, they assign difference roles to friends to perform the story as a play!  Groups of students meet together to discuss business plans and company logos for the upcoming Market Day.  “This year, I will sell 25 pieces of my homemade apple pie!”, a friend says excitedly.
____________________________________________________________________________

**Market Day:  Upper and Middle School students may bring handmade items, gently used items, or store bought items they would like to sell.  They may bring baked goods and sometimes foods.  This is a Practical Life/Math study for these students.  They can form partnerships and must pay taxes.  They pay back any short term loans they make and keep their profit.  PIII (Kindergarten) and older students may purchase items.  Not all parents want their child to participate in this event.  We assume that if the child does not arrive at school with money, that their parents do not want them to participate.  We assure the children they will have plenty of opportunities to shop with their parents!

It is good that you made a website that documents your school activities. I can see that your institution is packed with a variety of interesting events. I commend that your school lets students engage in an output based education; in my opinion children learn best when they do things themselves after they have been taught. I would like to recommend this school for my niece; I reckon she will have a wonderful time learning together with other students. Moreover, I hope you continue to organize different educational issues for the students.
