     How can it be May already?! I just want this wonderful school year to slow down. I could not be more proud of all of your children this year. They are courteous, hard working, nurturing, bright and so talented. Spring is such a fun and full time of year here at Children’s House. We are all so busy but just busting out of the seams with information to share with each other, artwork, singing, dancing and enjoying each other’s company… book fairs, state testing, Mother’s Day projects, a fabulous Culture Fair, thanks to all of our Elementary families and our production of Peter Pan next week promises to be one of our best plays ever. Life is certainly good. Did I say how proud I am of your children? I love them so much and am so grateful that I get to share my days with them. Thank you all for everything you do and I look forward to seeing you Friday at the play! Yo Ho!! 


It is definitely feeling springy around here, not only the beautiful weather, but also the energy and growth of the children in the Toddler Classroom. This time of year is so exciting and very, very busy. We have some big lessons and big work going on, as well as huge growth in all areas, for each child. Miss Tiffany and I feel so fortunate to be able to share our days with your children and watch them bloom.

from the Lower Elementary...

Each spring as we conclude our Early Humans study, the children discover that the lower el classroom is a modern-day version of their long ago ancestor’s life in the first Neolithic farming villages. The division of labor and the specialization of skills allowed for the development of identities independent of the group. The group priority was that everyone’s needs were met so as to ensure the passing on of skills and knowledge. And to ensure equality, we build our “new stone” village in the backfield before we choose our huts and the product or service we will provide. Then we hone our haggling and bartering skills as we prepare for the “Trading Game”. And like the wise Neolithic elders who eventually passed away, the leaders of our group are moving on and teaching us how to get by without them by mentoring our future leaders now. They will be missed dearly.

from the Upper Elementary:

Upper el has had a whirlwind of a spring! In March, we visited Sacramento where we toured museums, the state Capitol, and historic sights like Sutter's Mill and Sutter's Fort. Upon returning, we dove right into the Culture Fair! We were blessed again with another beautiful day for the children to share their research, foods and crafts. Now the class is excited to begin rehearsals for our upcoming performance of Peter Pan!
