Let Grow Project

We are so proud of our students for taking part in the Let Grow Project. Friends gathered in partner groups today to share their achievements. Projects ranged from "getting dressed by myself" and "using the stove to cook for the first time" to "riding a bike myself" and "walking alone". It was evident that the students felt proud of themselves. Each accomplishment was documented on a green leaf. Our Let Grow Tree will sprout in the School House between now and the Celebration of the Arts. We can't wait to share all of our students' proud moments!

Forest Edge Nursery's Box City

Forest Edge Nursery has been learning all about architecture and building. They began their unit of study by reading plenty of books about engineering. The class favorite was "If I Built a House" by Chris Van Dusen. Students drew their own blueprints of what their dream house could look like and then constructed houses out of blocks. They then created an entire city using repurposed cardboard from the library renovations. After they assembled their cardboard town outside, they painted murals on the buildings using sponge letters, roller paint brushes, animal shaped-sponges and a variety of other painting materials. Three-year-old imaginations soared as they ran back and forth from the houses, visiting friends, popping in for a visit, waving through the windows, and back out again. Painting al fresco on a beautiful spring day is part of the joy of childhood.

As students searched for clues, they learned a bit about London in Shakespeare's time and The Globe Theater. They practiced team-work, critical thinking, and communication skills as they puzzled over riddles to track down a long-lost Shakespearean script--a perfect way to end our revels before spring break!
