Growing Together

We have had a wonderful week here at Maayan.  Students are learning and growing.  As we start the push toward the end of the year, students are building momentum and are using a variety of means to show off what they have learned throughout the year.

In Tipot, students made mountains and decorated them for the parsha of the week and had imaginary play together.

In Mrs. Depew’s class, students made different habitats that would be conducive for different types of animals.  They also made “raccoon islands” to figure out which environment would be best for raccoons based on facts about them.
