Learning in Nature

Our students are learning about nature through our community garden both during and after school. Kindergarten students were excited to pick carrots from our fall harvest which corresponded with their Core Knowledge Language Arts curriculum domains on plants and farms. This was a great way for them to apply what they learned in the classroom! After school, our Girls Scouts troop were examining the flowers and vegetable in the garden with magnifying glasses to earn merit badges!

Experiential Education at Hirsch

Throughout the fall semester, Hirsch students have benefited from several experiential learning opportunities both during and after school. Students have learned about grammar, math, geography and language arts by playing fun and educational games, participating in art projects and engaging in creative movement. Our kindergarten students recently practiced their number recognition by rolling dice and discussing the concepts of more, less and equal numbers. In our free after-school tutoring program, our kindergarten and 1st grade students have been sounding out consonant-vowel-consonant words like r-u-g with creative movements to recognize the different phonemes, while other 1st and 2nd grade students were building silly sentences with the different parts of speech by playing a game with flash cards.
