Group Projects

We are working on Group Projects that have more than one step- and take more than one class to complete. Our goals are to build cognitive understanding of project sequences, team-work, cooperation, problem solving skills and creativity- also motor skills, but that is a positive 'side-effect' of our activities.

The children are delighted to work on a project for their outdoor space. Stay tuned to see the finished project once it inshallah is hanging in our outdoor space.

They are also working on a mural, but this is more about the PROCESS than the product, as this activity if full of learning that may not be as evident in the product- understanding shapes and attempting to cut them out (a challenge for young children), sharing work space, following a sequence, creativity, scissor skills, gluing, working with different material, and so on...
