Day to Day

Students are welcomed into an atmosphere of learning that is friendly and filled with curious anticipation of the lesson to come. We start off the morning by sharing information about our lives & what our day together holds. Lessons begin with a group problem solving assignment, or a fun, non threatening class spelling bee. From there we discuss the topic we'll be exploring and how it relates to our lives. The lesson may involve dictation notes, original drawings, group investigations, or all.
