The K6 campus is utilizing our Arts-Based Skills and Strategies (ABSS)! Kindergarten used the Torn Art strategy to practice spelling their names and Mrs. Schuster’s 2nd grade theatre students used the Tableau strategy to learn stage directions and levels while demonstrating knowledge of story settings. ABSS are grounded in the Artful Learning Model, honor the Multiple Intelligences, and touch all three domains of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Importantly, they are also fun! They are designed to move away from teacher-directed instruction towards self-instruction; an authentic learning “leap” from being told something is relevant to discovering the relevance for oneself. More information can be found at artfullearning.org.
AAA K-6 Campus will host Goodies with Grandparents 7:15am-7:45am on Friday, Sept 9th. Grandparents or a special guest, are invited to join us for pastries and juice in your student's classroom. Please turn in your RSVP forms (sent out in this week's Tuesday folders) by Sept 2nd, to help us in planning for the event. Contact counselor Mrs. Shover with questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
