Goings on around the School (for fish)
GHS may be engaged in distance learning but our students are engaged with each other, collaborating on work and sharing as a group.
Middle Schoolers worked on a math project called School For Fish using perimeter and data planning to make a floor plan for a school for fish. Then they shared their work withe each other. Check out their floor plans HERE and HERE.
ArtsLab is going strong, too. Distance learning lends itself to some excellent multi-age projects. Siblings Marcus and Chloe are making Upcycled Sculptures from materials found around the house. Check out
Miki's google page
for directions and inspiration.
The 4s are active every day and have been continuing with their learning. One project this week was to keep a weather journal helping them connect with the outside world and to concentrate on close observations and changes in the world around them. The warm weather probably made all of us long for swimming weather!
Writing Workshop is an important part of the day in Lower School classrooms. Jason, the 7s co-teacher, gave the 7s a humorous writing prompt ("What if a chair began to yell in the library?") and students responded with detailed stories. Seesaw, the digital platform used by the 7s, allows teachers to continue to give comments and encouragement to individual students.
Colin's 9s started the day with Inspirational Morning Work - a great way to connect with each other and to create a sense of connection and motivation that will last all day.
