SRA, Stamp Game, DWP, Moveable Alphabet, Checkerboard, Brown Stair.
Your children don’t think of these terms as anything but part of their school day, part of their work.
This week and next week Children’s House and Elementary parents are seeing some of these materials and some of this work when they visit their children’s classrooms for “Teach Your Parent.” Students are the teachers, and parents are the students.
This year the real event, however, has been parents just being in the buildings, feeling the environment of the classroom, seeing where your children learn and grow everyday.
“This is the first time I have been in this building!”
“She showed me the Bank Game!”
“Do you know, Aline, that this is the first time I have seen you indoors?”
“He knew exactly what to do and what he wanted to show me.”
Parents are attentive to their children’s lessons and, at the same time, joyful in the glimpse they are getting of the world of the classroom.
This event has traditionally been for Children’s House and Elementary students, and this is the first time in over two years that we have hosted it. Middle School students will show some of their work virtually next Wednesday at “Middle School Voices,” and all are invited to join.
We all look forward to more opportunities to come on campus and into classrooms this spring.
