What We Have Been Doing!

From La Jolla Shores Market

This past Wednesday we completed our last field trip to Avenida de la Playa and are now beginning to reflect on all that we have learned. We have been so fortunate to be part of such an amazing community and the children have gained knowledge and experiences that could never be taught in the classroom.

In the classroom we have been learning how to make maps and what makes a community. The students have made maps of their classroom, Avenida de la playa and of course their neighborhoods!
After learning about Maps we read the book Roxaboxen, which is a wonderful story about children and they town they created with their imagination. We then worked in small cooperative groups to make our own towns.

Thank you to all of the wonderful guest chefs we have had over the past few months. This past Monday we joined Lisa B’s class to read “The Runaway Tortilla” by Eric A. Kimmel. The children made tortillas from scratch and enjoyed making their own restaurant menus and puppets.

In Book Buddies we continued our exploration of domino math by playing “1-2-3 Flip”.
