NEW BUILDING PLANS REVEALED….

Friday the 17th at 5:00pm.

Come check out the 11 proposed building plans for a NEW ACTON ACADEMY Twin Falls.

Acton students have played the role of architects in designing ideal school buildings. Challenges have taken the students through the process of: research, design (drafting/sketching), and construction (model building). They’ve learned about architecture as a calling, scaling and applied mathematics, precision and attention to detail, and working within creative constraints. 📐 📏

It is amazing to see their creativity come to life and the pride they’ve taken in designing a new school building for their Acton community. 🏫

Top off the night with an edible architectural challenge given to all guests. GOOD LUCK 🍀 participating in this fun building activity that will test your building skills. We’d suggest teaming up with one of these architecture students!

It’s moments like this that I am SO grateful my kids have this opportunity to learn hands-on. These are life skills that they will use forever! What better way to apply core skills than through real-life applications that make them EXCITED about learning. ❤️

Does your child's education foster curiosity and a love of learning? Does it follow your child's interests and passions? Is it preparing your child to think on their feet and lead in the real world?

Welcome to education in the 21st century. At Acton Academy, students are encouraged to be themselves, want more for their future and become the best version of they can be, not just merely pass to the next grade.

Some differences we know matter to you:
Individualism
Student-led learning
Growth mindset
Mastery based at their own pace
Learning to lead and collaborate even with differing opinions
Developing valuable habits for life

If you want to discover a revolutionary way of learning, snag one of the last remaining tours in January! We'd want to ignite the love of learning in your child.
WARNING: Once they begin, your child might never want to leave school. Seriously!

Who are the most successful people? Whether you define success in wealth, happiness or wisdom, the most successful tend to be resilient, self-directed, disciplined, competent, creative and able to learn on a whims notice.

If the world demands these skills, why do traditional schools require children to conform and teach them such a narrow scope of knowledge completely disconnected from any real-world application?

Acton Academy is a hands-on, project-based school that puts education back into the learner's hands. We treat every child as an individual in an environment that allows them to explore, create and grow to develop the character, knowledge and skills needed for the real world.

Today our heroes began their geography and culture quest. The Sparks (3-6 year olds) started by getting an idea of where they live (see their building blocks) in Twin Falls, expanding to Idaho and level by level until reaching the universe. They then came back down in the afternoon to land in Paris by learning about and building the Eiffel Tower.

I love this picture that was captured in the studio last week. (Here a 2nd year hero helps a kindergarten hero who was timid to practice a cursive letter on the board.) This really sums up the community that's being built at Acton Academy Twin Falls, LLC! What's forming is a tight-knit tribe of caring humans using their gifts and talents to help lift their fellow heroes to their full potential. It makes my heart sing to watch them prepare to change the world.

Thank you to the families who helped and participated in our Christmas Craft Night! It was GREAT watching kids and adults alike be creative and enjoy time together. Can’t wait for next year’s event!

Did you know teaching cursive writing BEFORE manuscript (print) has many benefits!

With only 3 main strokes, it's easier to teach;
Prevents reversal of letters;
Less errors due to the natural, fluid motion;
Enforces skills and patterns for reading;
Strengthens fine motor skills;
Self corrects spacing between letters and words;
Helps left-handed children.

These are reasons your child will learn cursive before print at Acton Academy!

Even older children at Acton are encouraged to learn or strengthen their cursive writing skills, but learning from a young age (around 3) will provide the most benefit to the child.

The Ignite heroes (ages 6-13) are on fire! It’s amazing to watch them choose to engage and how handing their education back to them builds interest, engagement and learning that lasts. I dare you to ask how it works! 😁
It’s also impressive to watch the tribe grow into a tight-knit community full of caring individuals with unique differences and strengths and use these differences to make each other even better. ❤️

These Spark heroes (3-6 year old students) have been so engaged and excited about learning, exploring and discovering the world around them. They truly have a love of learning being “sparked.”
And we want to keep it that way for life!

Do you question whether students can run their own school? CHECK THIS OUT!

The heroes at Acton Academy lead their own learning. At the beginning of the year, they worked together to creat promises to each other about how they want their studio to function. One of their responsibilities is personal and studio maintenance.
And they promised to loose earned points if they don’t do their maintenance. I informed them last session that occasionally pictures of them and the studio get posted to social media and sent to their families.

We’ll, over the last two days, studio maintenance fell apart! 🙈 Don’t worry, there’s a rainbow at the end of this learning experience!😆 Upon walking in just now, I announce it was time for a picture. At first they tried to stand in front of the mess but then dove into hiding (you can see some under tables).

I snapped a picture then left….

5 minutes later, they called a town meeting to discuss the problem. They talked about the problem and created solutions. Man, they set tougher rules for themselves than I would have, but they ALL stepped up took responsibility for their actions and promises. A half hour later, the studio was clean. Even dust from before we move in was cleaned out of crevices! 🤣

I’m so impressed with these young heroes!

Ask yourself:
What would have happened if an adult would have told them to clean? How much more do they value and take pride in their studio now that they made it theirs?

Folks, this educational journey is more than memorizing facts for a test! These are the heroes who will responsibility lead our next generation! They know how to think on their feet, solve problems and collaborate together to create a better outcome.

Far too many have grown up thinking education is sitting at a desk while a teacher lectures and tells the students what they "should know," what papers to turn in and what facts to memorize for a test. When in reality, this is not how the world teaches or operates.

The real world doesn't hold back. Your child will be thrown into situations where they'll revert back to the educational foundation they were built. If that foundation was only worksheets and tests, they won't know what to do next without being not told. Thankfully, there IS A BETTER WAY!

Leaning by doing is proven to be the best way for children to learn. Sure, they still will memorize facts, but when they learn it by doing, learning is retained, not lost to the wind once the test is turned in. Why do you think the retention rate one week after a test is so low? Was it engaging and applicable to the child or just a box to check off because they have to do as they're told?

Don't let your child fall through the cracks of the faulty traditional system of educational. When your child learns by doing, they are more confident in their abilities, retain far more and are grounded in independence and resiliency they will need in the real world.

Join the 21st century learning revolution.

To finish off our third quest, our Spark heroes (preschoolers and kindergarteners) had fun showing their parents a bit of what they leaned regarding human anatomy. They picked a parent to join them on stage and then proceeded to pin internal organs, muscles or bones onto their parent. It was CUTE to watch these young “doctors” assemble their parents. Over the last month, the students have been so fascinated with learning about many of their systems. When learning is fun, it keeps them coming back for more!

Yeah for hands-on Montessori learning! Children love to step up to a challenge because they love learning. Your child’s educational could be exceptional too.
