Our students’ foundation in technology includes understanding how it works and how to use it to change lives. Our technology supports innovative learning at all ages – from interactive whiteboard projectors in all classrooms, to iPad learning stations in our Montessori Preschool, and one-to-one student devices in Grades 1 through 8.
The third grade students have been learning all about the Civil Rights Movement and its leaders. We spent some time learning about the Civil Rights Movement as a whole and the various events that occurred. We focused on the different kinds of peaceful protests that were led by many African Americans at that time, such as the Woolworths lunch counter sit-ins, the Selma to Montgomery March, the March on Washington, the children’s protest, and the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
During the month of January, the Physical Education program focused on a school wide basketball curriculum.
With the weather so cold and their love for animals, a lot of the students have been learning about arctic animals. In Extended Care, we set up an invitation to build dens for winter animals. This engineering project for the students was so much fun!
“Sing a joyful song to the Lord!” is inscribed on the front of the music room door. Our Upper School Choir students come to the music room each Tuesday morning at 7:30 AM to do just that!
Learning about animals is a great way to start a unit on descriptive vocabulary in Spanish. Fourth graders usually fall in love with the boxes of stuffed animals that we pull out of the closet to start our lesson.
