"You have to throw to your teammates. Everyone needs a turn."

"Do you need help?"

"You can go first!"

These quotes are just a sampling of the ones Tr. Jill noticed last week. These inclusive, respectful, encouraging, and honest statements are signposts of a healthy sense of community growing in the 1/2 classrooms. Community fluorishes when its members feel a sense of belonging.

First and second grade visited Rittenhouse Town, part of their study of colonial America. The children participated in some German colonial cooking (they made unleavened buckwheat bread), made their own pieces of paper, and learned about the history of the site and about colonial clothing.

During the cooking, each child had the opportunity to use a mortar and pestle to grind up buckwheat into flour and cinnamon sticks into cinnamon, to whisk eggs with a birch twig whisk, grate nutmeg, and taste the finished pancake.
