Laurie McIntosh, also known as “Story Laurie,” brought her storytelling and musical gifts, and her love of the natural world, to Phoenicia Elementary School on May 24. During her garden-themed program—held in the community garden located on the school grounds—McIntosh asked the children to think about the various forces that help plants grow—everything from clean water to pollinating insects.
Continents in a Box started from an idea that third graders should not just read and write about the 7 continents of the world, but, should also be able to touch, feel and experience real objects that come from lands far far from their own. With a grant from the Lilly Sarah Grace foundation and funding from the PTA this program was established. Select link for an amazing video overview of this program.
During the summer of 2014, The Board of Education approved the Social Thinking Curriculum, developed by Michelle Garcia Winner and associates, to address the social/emotional needs of our student community.
