Developing Emerging Interests

Supporting Lifelong Skills

Students in the Green Room are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning, wonder about things, try their best, explain their thinking, learn from their mistakes, move their bodies, practice breathing techniques, consider others’ perspectives, disagree respectfully, name their feelings, and ask for what they need. 

These are applied throughout the year and regardless of the themes we are studying. Our daily schedule provides opportunities to practice these important skills.
