Bringing our campus to you!
We want to give prospective families a peek into the daily life of our students. See recent highlights below!
A Child's Garden: Preschool
In May and June, preschool students have been busy helping in the garden plot, learning the last of the letters of the alphabet, and the science that allows items to sink or float in water. The group also had their annual Teddy Bear Picnic!
In May and June, Sunrisers had a great time reading the book “Wacky Wednesday” by Dr. Seuss and describing what was wrong in each picture. Students also finished up their busy bug bulletin board and how-to books, which they presented the last week of school. All students had fun with field day!
Rainbow: Grades 1&2
In May and June, 1st and 2nd graders wrapped up their unit study on rocks. In-person learners focused on soil, comparing homemade soil to soil samples from around campus, and learned that soil is a mixture of sand, gravel, pebbles, and humus. In writing, students presented their stories to their peers. In Math, first-graders learned about shapes, while second-graders worked on three-digit addition and subtraction.
Horizon: Grades 3&4
In May and June, Horizon gardeners tended the garden plot they share with A Child's Garden and donated the produce to Share the Harvest, a Guilford County nonprofit dedicated to fighting hunger during the coronavirus pandemic. Students have also studied poetry and enjoyed quietly observing nature outside and then writing free verse poetry about the experience. To wrap up their study of North Carolina, students shared the topographic maps they created with their families and friends over Zoom.
Galaxy: Grades 5&6
In May and June, 5th and 6th-grade students worked on their persuasive essays about their Literature Circle books. In Reading, in-person students continued their exploration of poetry through a combination of reading poetry, discussing poetry, and learning how to react to poetry. Galaxians wrapped up their interactive timelines focusing on the experience of different groups of people throughout the 1800s. As part of this project, the students have worked together to design their timelines with dates, text, visuals, and links to additional material. The warm weather gave way to lots of fun outside time too!
