How do we inspire our youngest artists? Our little ones need open ended activities and space and time to properly explore them. They need a wide range of materials and access to them. They need to be encouraged to push further and think deeper. And most importantly they need to be acknowleged not for their product but for their hard work and determination. Check out the incredible work our little artists have created in The Hive Classroom!
Each year our teaching staff go ABOVE AND BEYOND to make the month of October extra special for our students. Our students this year have been thrilled to find each day full of interactive, hands on exploration of all that is icky sticky and creepy crawly.
Get inspired to bring the spirit of the season into your classroom and encourage your children to explore their favorite holiday in a whole new way!
What can you find in the Witches’ Brew? This sensory search was so much fun! Students loved trying to find and count out the different creepy crawly items!
The Den Classroom has been on a Rainbow Aventure that lasted over a month! Each week they explored a different color of the rainbow and spent time studying the different shades and qualities of each. The activities they provided for their students were equal parts beautiful and engaging and helped ignite interest in all of their students. Take a look at this beautiful unit that started with the question…..what is your favorite color?
