My Students

My students come to school every day excited to learn. They love each other, and the happiest times of their day are when they can collaborate in their learning.

We are deeply engrossed in the complex stories and discoveries going on in our classroom every day.

We love hands-on learning and are never so happy as when we are playing with or working with stuff. We love to work in our dramatic play center as we retell stories or work through problems through our role play.

My Project

We are working to complexify the learning in our hands-on discovery centers. It is important for students to have a place in the classroom to work through the issues they have at school or at home. One of the ways they do this is through role play in the classroom.

By telling and acting out stories with dolls students can process their turbulent emotions.

When they do this with peers, it is a powerful way to help children grow and strengthen their social-emotional muscles. Students come to us with diverse home lives and diverse emotions regarding these lives. When we give them a safe place to work through these, we strengthen who they are as learners.
