A yearly tradition, Jemicy Lower School students celebrated the 100th day of the school year. This year’s theme was Superheros! Students, dressed in Super Capes, exercised for 100 seconds, created a Super Food 100 day layered snack, did Super 100 Stacking, Super 100 Sorting, Super 100 Power Moves , and became Super Mathletes! It was a very memorable, multisensory Super Day – all the while reinforcing the concept of 100.
Following months of rehearsal time, two casts of lower school students presented four stellar performances of Sound of Music to the delight of packed, enthusiastic audiences. The acting, musical numbers, and choreography were pure perfection and, as it has been every year, the process was transformative…building confidence and revealing previously untapped talents of our children.
To enhance their study of two and three dimensional shapes, area, and perimeter with a hands-on, multisensory activity, lower school math students constructed a playhouse and then “listed it” for sale! The listing included living space and lot size in square inches and feet; an iMovie was created to attract buyers.
In conjunction with this year’s Lower/Middle School Fall Unit, Music, I Group students journeyed to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to see What about Beethoven and toured the facilities. In the afternoon, the students visited the Movez Studio, where they learned multicultural dances.
