Week 8: Student Bloggers in October

IMG_0368.JPG

This week's blog is brought to you by the Early Learners: A, G, K, and P. The girls enjoyed captioning the photos below with their voices, ensuring that they each shared ideas and stories about their learning this week. As you will see, we worked with gourds, explored and started unpacking the construct of gender, acted as engineers, participated in the honey harvest, created a graph, and more. I hope that you enjoy the authenticity that their voices bring to our experiences.
