Models of Excellence for EL

Big news! The Capital City Public Charter School Pre-K project “The Color I Made Is Stunning!” has been accepted into the EL Education Models of Excellence collection, an amazing and very selective resource of exemplary student work open to educators across the country. Take a look at the work created by the students that will be used as a model to raise questions, provoke thinking, and inspire excellence:

Make sure to stop by your children’s classroom, or the Studio, to check out our color study book!  Yay!

“You need a bigger Studio, we can’t all fit!”

Wow— what a fabulous Showcase we had yesterday!  Thanks to all the families that stopped in the Studio.  Friends who helped write the invitation sure were right… there were so many people, we almost did need a line!

In the New Year, we will begin assembling this color study work into an artist book.  I’ve also been thinking about incorporating some of the images into a children’s book (thanks for the idea, dad!)  If anyone has experience writing, publishing or illustrating books and is interested in collaborating, please let me know!  I hope everyone has a wonderful, restful break.

“We want to make you something special because we love you!”

Wow… what a week it’s been!  As we’ve been wrapping up our school year, I was able to join every classroom for a Morning Meeting to present gifts!  Friends were very excited to share with their friends what they made for them, as well as see what other friends worked on.  Here are some photos from the sharing experiences.

Tomorrow, rising Kindegarteners will take home their flower pots.  Be sure to look for them in the cubbies!  And hopefully by the end of the day tomorrow, our new curtain will be hanging in it’s new home on the window.
