One of the ways we've gotten to know each other is through Writing Workshop. Every Sky Class community member, including teachers, wrote a book about themselves. The style of the books varied and included 'ABCs of Me', 'A Book of Favorites' and stories of special events and memories. Students have also loved getting to know each other by working together during Centers. Centers is a time where students choose an activity to do with a small group of other students. Choices include blocks, art-making, maker space, structures, marble run, painting and more. These activities are less structured and allow students to explore different interests. Centers requires collaboration and cooperation, which has allowed students to get to know each other and learn to trust that any conflicts that arise can be solved peacefully.
Here are some pictures from Centers and writing workshop.
