4) Students learn to become leaders through problem solving!
This is art made by the Recycling Stars Cluster. Students encouraged people to recycle their caps and lids. They then turned it into a seasons tree. Notice how the tree shows all the seasons!
The Math Lovers cluster explored different math puzzles and games. They then created a math contest for the school.
In the Operation Troops Cluster, students raised money to create packages to send to people serving overseas in the military.
This is a sign for the Red Carpet Event for mothers and daughters being planned by the Glam Squad. This cluster focused on bringing out the "true beauty" in women. Each month they named a "true beauty" queen within the school and put up posters in the school about definitions of beauty around the world and women who showed "true beauty."
This was mine and Abby's cluster, The Puppeteers. Students wrote three plays to help other students deal with bullies, adjust to a family member moving away, and to teach kids to NEVER GIVE UP! We wrote the scripts, created puppets, and built a puppet theater!
|The Sew It Up cluster is always a popular cluster. In addition to sewing their own creations, this cluster made pillows to donate to Oasis Catolica.|
The Garden Clusters are always popular too! Over the years, students have planted vegetable gardens, butterfly gardens, a carnivorous bog, and trees! This cluster session, students concentrated on the vegetable gardens. Here are some carrots and broccoli from their gardens!
Any cooking cluster typically fills up quickly too! One of the cooking clusters was the Traveling Iron Chefs. These kids decided to explore cultures around the world learning both information about the country and trying food from those countries. They then taught other students about those countries and their food. Here is some sushi they made (although it was candy sushi--very popular!!)
Aren't these amazing! Honestly, the other 30+ clusters are just as wonderful, this post is just getting very long plus I don't have pics of all of them without children (I don't post pictures of children from school)! I really wish I could tell you about ALL the clusters! Students made so many amazing products like food and cookbooks, videos/movies, dances, public service announcements, photo stories, a wooden bench for our future track, art work, planned special events, and more!! The students and teachers at our school are so hardworking and creative!
