I enjoy this time each year, settling into the rhythms of winter. The Voyager students dig into challenging work, combining their skills to jump to a new level.
In Math, we use our basic arithmetic to learn and understand the relationships found in fractions. In Literature, we combine our solid sentences into paragraphs and build them into essays. We use our confidence with friends to branch out into vulnerable areas of original art, plays, and poetry. It is a time of doing things over, adding more words, playing with challenging numbers, memorizing scripts, using different mediums. The bud on the tree is full of life in the winter; the anticipation of what will blossom in the spring.
