Happy Fall, everyone!
Even with the weather beginning to (finally) cool down, the Redwoods have been igniting some exciting things in our classroom.
We were so proud to perform our Three Branches of Government play. Thank you for joining us. All classes were able to be our audience and we learned much from the feedback we received. We were able to reflect on the content, our projection as well as our managing our energy. TKG is a place where students are empowered to take the lead on projects like this and we’ll take this experience and reflect and learn of the next one.
As a learning facilitator, It has been an amazing opportunity to observe the Redwoods in their element and stretch themselves. We saw students become set designers, script writers, directors, and historians! I appreciated seeing their excitement for learning wrapped up in hard work and commitment. In true TKG fashion, they were able to observe an unknown subject, inquiry, and relate their own experiences to it – causing them to make the learning and knowledge their own!
Our audience peers were very supportive, especially the Acorns! We even had a few parents come to a second showing because they couldn’t get enough. Our Redwoods are already planning their next play…help us develop the stories at home by asking your students to talk about their performing experiences and hopes.
Hope you had an amazing Fall break, folks!
