Curriculum Day

One of our favorite days of the year arrives at the very end, when we invite all of our families to come into the classrooms and explore and celebrate the inspiring curricula the children have been working with.

This year, our Purple Room was transformed into a forest for raccoons, and families explored tracks, made a raccoon river, and constructed cozy homes for our furry friends. In the Red Room, families made accordion books using cyanotypes painted with indigo that the children have been working on this year, and enjoyed a tea party featuring Armenian bread and Spaas (an Armenian yogurt soup). Yellow Roomers dove into a sensory table of deconstructed bath bombs, stirring up a beautiful soapy mess. They also explored a spring-time palette of tempera paints, and crawled through fox-box-tunnels!!

Afterwards, our full school gathered for an outdoor Hootenanny, featuring hits from the year! Follow all the fun below:
