We had a busy week, try to keep up...

What a week! Monday's Farm to Table chefs cooked up a tasting including zucchini kale muffins and roasted brussel sprouts. Later in the week, while some students hiked up Elephants Head, others hiked Willard, and the views were incredible. Lynn came in for four days to teach knitting to several students who are progressing in their desire to make felted bags. Our emerging reading group continued their work with Ali, while one student wanted to see what would happen if he walked on eggs. They didn't break, and now he's wondering...why? During the morning, several students worked on painting personalized boards that will become a part of a new bridge to be constructed on the Woods Trail. Outside, students navigated their partner safely through a "3D minefield" as part of a compassionate communication activity. Inside, students made varyingstyles of ramps with cardboard, wooden blocks, and dominoes. A story about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly and caterpillar hunt captivated  many kids as they searched among the milkweed on the farm. Paul spent an afternoon with us on the Woods Trail teaching a group of students how to make a teepee from natural materials...to be continued! OSE students had a go at the Sieve of Eratosthenes and other math games, and all students are completely engrossed in our Journey of Discovery, Make It!
