Busy Week

The past week was action packed with the daily academic lessons but also plenty of independent, partner and small group work.  Mixed in with all of the formal academics were a variety of fun experiences like the Spring Sing, field trip to a nature museum and a bus evacuation drill.  At times some of the best learning experiences are never planned, instead they spontaneously evolve from a pattern of learning steps or interpersonal interactions gone awry.  However problems present themselves, there's always a chance to analyze and problem solve.  It's amazing what six and seven year old minds can think up when the right questions are asked.  Anyway, after a week full of [mostly] wonderful new experiences, here is a photo slideshow highlighting our trip to the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.  Enjoy!
