This month the Four-Year-Old Program has been learning all about space, and our place in it! We learned about the planets, our Sun, and explored life as an astronaut. Today we relished in our beloved planet, learning different ways we can honor the health of the Earth and by playing outside surrounded by fellow earthlings!
Happy Earth Day to you!

Our Discovery School First Graders have a class Book Club. Once a month, students read a book at home with their family and then write a question or comment to be shared at Book Club.
Seated in a circle on the floor, it starts as a casual conversation, interesting facts are happily shared, opinions discussed, and then each takes a turn to say their question or comment.
This month the book was, Are You A Snail? Their first non-fiction Book Club book!
And to make it extra special, they were each gifted their own Texas Land Snail, raised on a farm here in Texas. Students were given a piece of clear plastic, sandpaper, and different foods to further explore their snail’s behavior. Hypotheses were debated as the students encouraged the snail to travel over a piece of sandpaper..We even got to watch one chow down on a piece of oatmeal! It was an educational, sensational experience getting to know one of our fellow earthlings.
We learn as we play and play as we learn!


Time to announce our 50/50 winners!


We would like to take time to recognize these wonderful women who have dedicated their time and effort to teaching the future; my kids and your kids. Thank you to each of these ladies, their hearts of joy, and perseverance.
