Welcome to the All Boys Program
Boys achieving their personal best.

Weekly Update | Mar. 12, 2017

Happy Sunday to our All Boys Program community.

 

I hope everyone has remembered to set your clock 1 hour ahead. We know that sleep and routines will be impacted by this change. It is a good reminder about the value of these routines and the ones the teachers are using to establish positive learning environments. As we move towards spring break and beyond some of the routines will see some transformation as we attempt to have the boys take more and more ownership for their learning.

 

Of note is the transformation that begins to occur in Kindergarten. The boys are starting to unlock the code of recognizing letters, numbers and seeing words and knowing how numbers can impact their world. They were doing some prototyping this week and are becoming builders in their pursuit of understanding how things grow. Below are some images from that space and evidence of their thinking and understanding around building things that are tall – while the first picture isn’t as tall as the second. The student identified the problem with tall is that they fall easily. He didn’t want his to fall so he built a structure that would be more stable…an awesome level of thinking and identifying problems with tall buildings. It is from this knowledge that we inform ourselves as educators as to the next right steps in the students learning.
