BUILDING WONDER   • • •   "Wonder is the beginning of wisdom." - Socrates

River Rushers

As we get more into our groove, the kids are learning what works for us and what doesn’t. We get our mornings rolling with a good math challenge, and Ms. Mel’s Curiosity Question. After morning time we get to work on our math and ELA. I like to throw a fun game into the mix to get our blood flowing before we head for snack.

After snack, we work on science on Mondays, and history on Tues. After lunch, it’s project time. The kids have developed many different clubs, from Legos, to dance clubs. It so much fun watching the kids work together and have so many similar interests. We have a very eclectic group of kids, and it all just seems to work for us.

Math challenge for the day.
Matthew, Marisa, Milo, and Teddy working together to solve my challenge.
Each history lesson I provide the kids with a challenge to earn gold nuggets. This challenge was a nomad shelter.
Bryson was our science guide for this week. I just love when the kids take an active role within in our group.
Our science experiment for the day. Chemical reaction! The kids took baking soda and water on a q-tip and then wrote a message. After it dried they used blackberries to cause a reaction making their message appear.
The kids made a history quiz game. They’re called fortune cubes normally. This had questions for them to answer from the past 3 weeks. They really had fun using these during class.
The kids listening to Matthew’s video on building a Lego fort. His ending fort was pretty amazing. This is one of the challenges he developed for his Lego club.
Olive, my little writer. She wrote a book for her project. Each day she reads us a few chapters. I love all the character she puts into her voice to keep the kids engaged.
Addie spent the afternoon making a beautiful picture of things she found at the park. Super creative, and a great way to spend the afternoon.
