Each class usually includes one or more stories, a group discussion, and related guided activity--but when the kids desire something a bit different, we don’t hesitate to go in different directions! During free play time, we often see the students forming several different “stations” around the room: some students playing a board game, some engaging in imaginative play, some creating art, some reading to themselves or asking a teacher to read aloud, etc. When the kids are meaningfully engaging with each other and navigating their way through complex social situations, we consider the class a great success. This class is geared toward early- and pre-readers. During story time, we explore folktales, legends, and fairy tales from around the world, as well as classical and modern literature. We meet characters from history and visit cultures of far-off lands. Depending on the interests of the students, we may sometimes choose a story that we will perform together as a class at the end of the term. Our story-relevant activities vary widely, including art, group discussion, story telling, early writing practice, dramatic play, music, and story reenactments. There is always the opportunity for open-ended work and self-directed learning through the pursuit of personal interests.
