Learning is not about memorizing facts. Learning is asking questions and following your curiosity like this Pre-elementary student who conducted a science experiment and shared it with others.
Even though one student could not celebrate his birthday in the classroom, his classmates came to him via Zoom, and they celebrated his day the Montessori Way.
As young students learn, their special joy comes through and thanks to parents (and some students themselves), it is shared with the greater community.
When your musical rehearsals and performances are canceled, what can you do? Practice performing in other creative ways like a reader’s theater!
How can you capture, celebrate, and share moments of learning when students are each in their own homes? Check out how the Lower Elementary teachers did it!
Even though the stay-at-home orders are in place, our Lower Elementary students continue to connect with the community around them in a variety of creative and caring ways.
Students are taking an extra step by learning at a deeper level and sharing their knowledge with their classmates.
Upper-elementary students had the opportunity to go on a trip to London (virtually, of course). They started their journey by riding The London Eye. They were treated with marvelous views of the whole of London, which they then went on to explore.
What happens during a three-week Poetry unit during remote instruction? Check out this story to learn the answer and to view some of the amazing student poems shared via Flipgrid.
When students connect to history, it increases their learning. In fourth-grade Social Studies, students are pondering on the past and recording their thoughts on FlipGrid.
Sometimes with remote learning, you need a break from learning. In Upper Elementary, they call this a "Brain Break," and they have fun ways of taking it.
In Middle School, students are sharing their little joys and stories of life with each other on their "Social Distancing Happy Time Videos for Everyone." Here is your chance to view some of the wonderful posts shared.
When your annual trip with students is canceled, what can you do? Make it virtual!
Seventh- and eighth-grade students make connections between their current world of social distancing to the isolation astronauts experience in space. How are they alike and how are they different?
During a regular school week, students and teachers share little joys and stories about their lives. How do you do this when you do not see each in person? Mr. K came up with a way.
As the school year gets closer to ending, reflections on past and current moments as well as the future.
With remote learning, one method that allows teachers to observe and celebrate their students' moments of learning is through shared videos. Here are two special videos shared with Mrs. Fleming, one of our Pre-elementary teachers.
When given the challenge to explore museums, and recreate a piece of art, the students took it on with amazing results.
Whether it is listening to a book or doing research, the library is here for everyone!
