"In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful." – Alice Walker

Greeting the day with free play everyday! Our friends get so much out of just being present with their passion. Free play develops their imagination, encourages them to explore and interact with the world around them, they practice self regulation, decision making skills, and learn to share and resolve conflicts. It’s a bustling and buzzing time as we come together as a community. Did you see Phil? Students made predictions on whether Phil would see his shadow then learned 6 more weeks of winter is ahead!
DREAMERS spent some time outdoors this week getting answers to their curious questions....does a bubble freeze? Will a water balloon turn into an ice balloon? They found out water in an ice balloon freezes from the outside in. As the water freezes, it creates pure crystals of water, which are clear. Meanwhile, impurities such as air or minerals are left behind in the liquid, where they concentrate until they come out of solution as bubbles.
What a week for our ACHIEVERS! Bake the World A Better Place project is well underway and has gotten as far as production and taste testing. Business, plan, staffing, production and supply costs, product procurement, product design and pricing, production, and testing have all taken place. We did miss a very important ingredient in our recipe on the first try. Can you guess what it is? Experiments and failing are part of the learning process. Teaching students they can fail, try again and succeed builds persistence, perseverance and grit.
Nature = joy, no stress, peace, appreciation
Multi age STEM class with our community is one of the highlights of the week! Peer learning promotes leadership, better communication and cooperation.
