Our boys are charming, energetic, determined individuals who crave novelty and challenge. They love science, building things with their hands, chants, songs and creative expression. Project-based learning and visuals are favorites, especially if they can sing it while they work. Our boys learn through struggle, find meaning in failures, and see mistakes as discoveries so that they can continue to grow and be successful. Every morning we chant our values to start our day, and their voices can be heard from across the campus. We are VMA SUNS!!
I've chosen bean bag chairs to provide comfort during independent study time. The products I've chosen will allow my students to select their best seating option. During reading it is important that students are allowed to sit comfortably as they focus on literature, writing, and comprehension skills. When students have a choice in seating it affords them the opportunity to be fully engaged in their instruction. Math, science, and group work all come together as students collaborate in a fun and inviting environment. Daily making the classroom a safe, open place to learn is what we will strive to accomplish for our innovative young minds!
