We have a Journey!

We officially have a Journey of Discovery! The students selected "Make It" as our first Journey for the year and they are busy designing, building, testing, drawing, knitting, cooking...you name it! Offerings to support Journey have included boat building and testing boats in the brook, wondering which ones would go the fastest or the straightest and how they reacted to the current of the brook. Origami has been explored as well. Our Farm to Table crew made delicious tomato soup and green beans for our tasting this week. The Middle School Read Aloud group is reading Darius & Twig by Walter Dean Myers, while the other two Read Aloud groups are engrossed in either A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck, or East of the Sun and West of the Moon, an old Norwegian fairy tale. Read Aloud is a great opportunity for students to unwind after a busy day and write in their journals, draw in their sketch books, or simply sit back and enjoy the story!
