Unit Celebration for Sharing the Planet!

As we wrapped up our unit of inquiry, Sharing the Planet, we took some time to record in our pictionary the academic language that guided our inquiry: interdependence, survive, adapt, ecosystem, flora, fauna, and human interaction. Eric (Sunflower) explained beautifully to the class what interdependence meant by using the example of a tree providing fruit […]

Building friendship

Here we go again! Few weeks have passed already since the last post, but here is more about the little ones of our school. Children continue mastering skills with activities that they already know. They are also showing curiosity for the new materials presented. Activities such as transferring water with a pipette, sponges or small pitchers are excellent to develop eye-hand coordination, precision of their grasping, first notions of math such as quantity, and concentration. These types of activities are self-corrected which means the child can see his/her mistakes and try to improve. These water […]

It came to my attention this week that our students have another significant “language” connection to each other and to the world; the language of music. This should […]
