What an amazing Revels performance (pictured above) - and a wonderful way to send us off to Winter Break. If you were unable to join us on campus or missed the livestream online, don't worry! We'll be sharing more photos and video from today's performance in the coming days. Read the full This Week at Brookwood newsletter here.
It's been a busy week here at Brookwood! Kindergartners learned about Hanukkah by making latkes and homemade applesauce, reading books, playing the dreidel game, making menorahs out of recycled materials, and coloring in menorah drawings.
At a recent School Meeting, Mrs. Stewart shared a presentation about how nature and our world influences us to create and make art. It featured pieces of student art, as well as a handful of notable artists that have been studied throughout the first half of the year. Pictured below are illustrations of Cats in the style of Paul Klee by 1st grade artists - Greyson, Josie, Frannie, Aashika, Max and Eli.
After donning PJs, boarding the "polar express" with Nancy Evans and trekking to the Dodge Writing Center, PreK students were treated to a reading of The Polar Express by Laura Caron.
PreK also celebrated the spirit of the season by learning about Jolabokaflod, an Icelandic tradition where books are exchanged on Christmas Eve and then families spend the rest of the night in bed reading them and eating chocolate. Students created books and decorated tins for chocolate kisses to give to their families.
