Tuesdays and Thursdays at the garden we host a homeschool meet up group with some vibrant international kids with a lot of secret talents. During our Skill Share classes, students step into the role of facilitator and create a class for their peers. This involves writing a lesson plan, executing it, and receiving feedback on their leadership. Throughout the process, children are encouraged to develop empathy and understanding for their peers, whether they are the ones teaching or being taught. It’s a pure and simple example of creative growth that we love holding space for.
This month we were treated to tutorials in bow and arrow making, Chinese fortune teller oragami, dance, facial sketching, balloon car making, and Pokemon molding.
Our homeschool group is on a brief hiatus for summer camp but open again in August 2017. Space is limited to 8 participants, registration open now.
