Learning through making
This week our campers have been really hands on with their learning:
In Science, we have finished the unit on matter, first creating the highest structure with cards and clips, and then transforming it into a stronger structure that can hold the weight of a hard cover book.
During math, we have continued our journey through numberless problems, and splitting up numbers in tens and ones. During Halloween Day, our aide Esther, presented on "El Dia de Los Santos", a November 1st celebration in Spain to honor our family members that passed away, and engaged our campers with a fun game comparing Halloween with El Dia de los Santos. In the afternoon, we ended the school day with a fantastic party organized by our volunteers, in which our campers decorated a pumpkin, frosted some cookies with some scary and yummy scenes, and played a guessing game with some horrific and mysterious objects in cauldrons. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
And during Language Arts, our campers have continued their practice on close reading, learning new vocabulary, and doing some summarizing with sequence of events.
Take a look at this week's slideshow.
