The day starts with classroom check in (Morning Meeting, where students and faculty gather in a circle.). This is an opportunity for the teacher to check in with students and build community. Circles best describe our schedule because students reflect on previous days to set themselves up for success. The class will circle back at the day’s end to share progress. It’s a win-win for both teacher and students.
During instructional times students will engage in a variety of groupings, there will be moments for whole class instruction, small group time, pairs and students will always have time to work on individual tasks. We will also focus on performing arts, visual arts and foreign language. We will always make time to enjoy an assembly and field trip, or as we call them, “away missions”.
