My students need arts and crafts items to maintain their thirst for exploration & creation using project-based learning. With items like paint & paintbrushes, clay, glue, glitter, & pipe cleaners, they will strengthen their learning.
We are all in this together is our school's motto. Our school is full of diversity and spirit that is celebrated in every classroom, hallway, student, family, and educator. We honor the over thirty different countries represented at our school and learn from them daily.
Our school has nearly five hundred and thirty students and is sixty percent free and reduced lunch.
We range from Pre-K through fifth-grade classrooms. We have a wide variety of multiage pods to allow children to build relationships with students and adults as they grow and learn. Project-based learning helps propel our students into student-led teaching and learning through Makerspace building and exploration.
Our classrooms are inclusive, meaning special education students will be found in every single room. We come from mixed backgrounds and all types of learning preferences! We love to learn through hands-on exploration, with technology and as a team!!
Maker-centered, problem-based learning is what you’d see if you visited our school. Our diverse group of second and third-grade learners engages every day in hands-on activities to take them to the next level of understanding. Whether it’s crafting a sarcophagus, designing a terrarium, or recreating the setting of the novel they are reading, these critical thinkers are using materials to design new things, clarify ideas, solve problems, ask and answer questions, collaborate, & improve upon previous work. This process of manipulating tangible materials is critical to their learning as these 7 to 10-year-olds make sense of the world around them and the knowledge they are acquiring. Being able to create concrete representations of literal and figurative concepts is a key part of understanding and remembering what these young learners need. Hands-on, constructive learning increases engagement, cooperation and positive socialization, problem-solving, and most importantly fun!
Our students will use all of these materials to make meaning of new learning content.
Students will use a variety of clay, paint, beads and construction paper to bring to life our explorations of the Great Wall of China, Pueblo Indian adobe homesteads, and simple machines. Students will develop their own animal habitats and design crafts to sell and trade for our Wants vs. Needs project by using glue, glitter, tape, buttons, pipe cleaners, and craft sticks. Students use Duct Tape, labels, markers and creativity to publish books to teach others about important people. They will make models to represent different places and processes. They will fashion costumes to act out plots and procedures. They will design, test and redesign machines that work. They will explore relationships between and among concepts. They will also cooperate and care for their materials as they store them properly to share with others.
