TerraNichol Academy of the Arts

May 2nd-6th, 2016

Learning Labs the TerraNichol Way

Sketching to Reggae Music-Jammin Mon' Reggae Style! Learning labs were filled with steel drums and the sounds of Reggae. We learned that we all really love Reggae and it makes us think of a vacation, the ocean, the beach, and just plain relaxation! We showed students what a steel drum looks like and discussed the difference in sound between bongos and steel drums.

Exploring Sea Life- Under the Sea a whole world waits for me! Students are learning about our wonderful ocean, the habitat, and all the animals and plants that call it home. Our students have so far shown the most interest in learning how to protect our ocean and its animals and of course exploring Sharks! We have examined shark teeth, created shark and seashell sketches, completed large shark floor puzzle, and we are learning about sea turtles!

Becoming Inspired by the Artist Wyland- Wyland is known for his grand seascape murals that are found all around our great state. After researching some of his masterpieces students have begun creating their own. A variety of mediums are being used from sea life stamps, to pastels. Some students have also been inspired to create small Wyland story boards about the artist's work.

Teaching is the greatest act of optimism!

Here at TerraNichol Academy of The Arts Preschool we feel very passionately about our profession. Education is so powerful and it can change the world. It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in the creative expression and knowledge. We teach from our hearts, open minds, and help facilitate the love of learning. Thank you to all our students and families for spoiling us this week and reminding us we are very appreciated and respected as professional teachers. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to stop, breathe, relax and take a moment for ourselves to refresh. This week was nice because we did just that with fresh coffee, homemade treats, lunch deliveries,gift cards, and lovely gifts. It gives us a chance to reflect that we are making a difference in our students and our community. Again, thank you for touching our hearts! We are so lucky to have a job that feels like play each day.

Thank you to our fabulous TerraNichol Academy Of The Arts Teacher Appreciation chair committee member Krisha. You are so dear to our hearts.

We have the best parents and families!!!
