Learning that sticks
Buddies might research African animals together or build and fly kites during wind week in Pre K. They take buddy hikes. They form a bond that is pretty special.
This week 2-3's and their middle school buddies re-imagined our landscape. "It is 1500. Europeans have not yet settled our lands. Native people live here. Your task: find a spot on the Parker grounds to sketch. When you come back watercolor a picture of what you and your buddy imagine the landscape looked like in 1500."
2-3's had a busy week. They were experimenting with boats in science class. First foil, then bark and moss (or whatever they thought might work.) Now clay. The creek comes in handy for testing. For getting muddy, too!
