mail boxes in use...

My first through 4th grade students at the Clear Spring School made mail boxes in wood shop this week so they can exchange letters. Each has an address so they can write to each other, and they are very busy doing that.

Each of their mail boxes is personalized and numbered 1-16.

The letters are placed in a basket before delivery so the teachers can observe their progress and letter writing skill.

Yesterday was the 4th day of Woodcarver's Rendezvous at ESSA and studio stroll was held to show area residents the excellent work that was being done.

Make, fix, create, and adjust schooling so that all children learn by doing real things. We need not all do the same things. Some will apply themselves to music, some to dance, some to the wood shop and some to the culinary arts. All will develop both character and intellect through the caring engagement of the hands.
