What an amazing summer we had in Burlington this year! I don’t think I remember weather quite as good in the 15 or so years I’ve lived here.
Last Wednesday we had our first day of school and what an exciting and happy day it was! Students poured into our hallways with smiles and cheerful exchanges with both students and teachers. During STEAM we engaged in games that connected to our skills and practices that we will focus on during the school year. For fifth and fourth graders it was collaboration, while first, it was making observations. It was so good to see all those bright and shining faces again!
This year we have some exciting projects in the works. A few of these are:
- a fifth/third grade collaboration creating programmed weather stations with Dealer.com staff.
- creating and learning about vermiculture.
- lots of outdoor work and exploration time
- an integrated classroom/STEAM project with Generator
Enjoy your last few summer days!
