How Are You Didgeridooing?!

Me, Jane and We, First Graders

First and Second Grade students learned about Dr. Jane Goodall, the legendary anthropologist and conservationist, and her wonderful work protecting all living species through an entertaining musical adaption at the Gaillard Center.

Exploring Aboriginal Culture Through Music

On Tuesday, February 6th, we welcomed special guest, Daniel Scruggs, who shared his passion and appreciation for travel and music education with us. First Graders were fascinated by his many relics from all over the globe and by his didgeridoo playing!

Center Time is Mind Building  

Our class center time allows students to explore materials in hands-on ways, extend and enhance learning concepts, and to grow in their social skills as they navigate interactions with their peers during this time. Centers are curriculum-based and developed around specific subjects, such as Math or Language Arts or thematic units. Some of our centers this week included Phonics tiles, Lego Math, Snap Word Bingo, a Noun/Verb Sort, and Australian animal research.
