This week at Woodland has been replete with activity! A Learn to Play Lego workshop tested the skill of following directions for many students, while others worked in the kitchen making collages. Cardboard box ice cream shop building and holiday decorating were other favorite activities. We had a guest parent reader during Read Aloud, swimming at Evergreen, our first Spanish class, a trip to the Catamount for a marionette performance, music lessons, and a visiting student. During Journey students are working on carving, pioneer skills, making a train, a talent show, egg decorating, script writing, costume making, and drawing. Lots of painting is happening during both Free Choice and Journey. And through it all, we are reminded of the power of taking a moment to simply pause, observe, and experience the joy of freshly fallen snow.
