Learning is Fun

We have had a week full of learning here at Maayan.  All of our classes are filled with smiling faces and partner or small group work.  Students are working together and collaborating to extend their learning.  Teachers are taking care to find ways to make sure students are actively engaged in their learning.

In Tipot, students practiced cutting with scissors, first on blank paper, and then cutting out shapes.IMG_4997IMG_4994IMG_4995
