Throughout the month of October PK4 has been teaching, learning and reading about the season of fall. We went on a scavenger hunt around Walden’s campus to identify types of leaves and made applesauce.  When the children were able to use their hands, the experiences had a larger impact and they were able to make deeper connections.  

Can we say Phalanges?  Walden School PK1 got into skeletons and The Human Body. Young children are often fascinated by their bodies. Identifying their body parts gives them language to communicate about it and strengthens their mind-body connection.
The magic and wonder of Roald Dahl is alive and well in Walden School 3/4 Classroom. Acquisition of new vocabulary such as hornswoggler, gobstopper and snozzcumber is becoming an everyday occurrence.  Students have become experts in the world of Roald Dahl and have presented their author study to their parents on October 31st. 
The Walden School Middle School recently visited a local treasure: Pennsylvania Colonial Plantation. They played colonial games including hoop rolling, game of graces, and cup-and-ball.  They explored the 18th century house and were shocked by the narrow, curving staircases that would have had to be traversed, often in the dark.  A highlight of their visit was candle-making, requiring them to patiently dip and re-dip their wick many times until a candle had sufficiently built up.  To experience chores of the colonial era, they got a chance to saw wood and see what it was like to carry buckets of water using a yoke.
