Students and teachers celebrated Some Extra Love day. We started off the day with a Mindful Moment presented by Ms. Clossey, which included yoga stretches. Teachers then guided students through various projects: giving heart, self-portrait, read-alouds, games, etc. Students created cards to send to the members of the KIPP Center.
Students in Grade 3: Ms. Kochan’s class participated in the yoga Mindful Moment and Mrs. Mayfield’s class played games and other fun activities.
Students in Community 201 spent part of SEL Day expressing their creativity with a Circle Drawing exercise. Each student started with the exact same circle on their paper and then added to the page to create their own image. Community 201 then discussed similarities and differences in their illustrations and in each other.
All students from Ms. DeBouter Remote Grade 2: Yoga class with Ruth (Tree pose and shavasana), making “optimistic flowers” out of handprint petals, with optimistic messages printed on them. Students were asked to hold up their flowers in their Zoom windows to make a virtual garden.
The PTA provided a special treat of a large soft pretzel from the Philly Pretzel Factory to make the day even better!!
