Parent & Child Class August 4-19

Parent & Child Class

Parent & Child classes lay the building blocks for elementary school. Science and math are introduced as tools for the exploration of movement and the physical properties of the natural world through play. Reading is rooted in language acquisition and the development of a rich imagination. Writing begins with strengthening the small motor skills. The teacher gently guides the natural play and interaction of the class towards healthy acquisition of these important skills, while the children do the activities at their own pace and in their own style.

Analemma: A 6th Grade Collaboration

Analemma

Starting a year ago in September 2013, middle school Mathematics teacher, Kathy Breen with the help of Donald Bufano and his 6th grade class, began plotting an analemma outside on the school’s pad. The analemma is created by marking the position of the top of a pole’s shadow on the ground at noon standard time. This marking is done at approximately weekly intervals over the course of the year.

Seventh Graders Renaissance Drawings

Renaissance Paintings

WSB Seventh Graders learn to replicate the technique of the Masters' Studios of Florence using colored pencil. An important addition to Renaissance painting was the practice of using a grid system to transfer scale drawings. The grid, in the Renaissance, became an important element in the construction of art works which were meant to look natural and without distortion even though they were painted on curved ceilings of buildings. Later, in the sixteenth century, this grid system made both the illusion of extended architectural space and anamorphic paintings possible.
