The last week of our first session is coming to an end. We have had many great adventures along the way and have grown as a tribe and as individuals.
This week saw the completion of our tree house project. The Eagles have been very excited about eating snack, lunch, and playing all sorts of games in the tree house. Also for those who may have missed them at the Exhibition, the eagles also made two bird houses that were decorated. One will be used in the school yard to try and attract birds the other will be donated to a charity auction.
We enjoyed music on Tuesday with Ms. Karen and were able to play many instruments with a "low deep" sound, including the bass violin, bass guitar, baritone tuba, and harp. We also had a mini concert on the pianos with all the Eagles playing different notes together and one Eagle being the "conductor".
During Art with Ms. Sanni the Eagles came really close to finishing their snail projects.
We spent some time at Ahern State Park on Thursday after we had completed exhibition preparation. There was a small section of brook where many frogs lived and most of them were caught.
The week culminated in the Exhibition of Learning where the Eagles showcased what they were learning to their families. We had an excellent turnout and appreciate all those that attended. The Eagles worked hard to prepare for the Exhibition and were excited to show everything off! The Eagles solemness during the Contract signing ceremony shows how much they are taking ownership of the studio.
Thank you all for your support through this first session of our Hero's Journey. We have been Called to Adventure and Entered the Unknown, a place of challenges. We have Met with Mentors and found Allies and Helpers. Next is our Road of Trials. The place where we find what we are truly made of. The Eagles will meet their challenges head on as we head into Session 2.
