Dear Friends, Parents and Colleagues,
On Friday, June 1st from 1-3 p.m., I hope you can join me for a talking and walking tour of my Master’s Project research, “Learning in Urban Outdoor Spaces.”
We will meet in the Living Room at 1 p.m. for an overview of the research and then walk through Central Park’s East Meadow and the North Woods as I talk about emergent and planned learning opportunities that the 7-8s’ students have experienced this year.
Bring stories of your childhood nature experiences or of your child’s learning this year as she/he moved through the 7-8s’ curriculum. Wear your walking shoes!
Here are two slideshows to whet your palate. See the 7-8s in action and some of their reflections:
By the way, this will be a grown-ups only event. The 7-8s’ students will be busy in their weekly Friday Worktime in the classroom with Claire and Marina.
Hope to see you on Friday at 1 p.m. in the Living Room!
7-8s Head Teacher
