Happy Holidays from River Class

(Slideshow photos by Jeannine and Ruth)

River Class has enjoyed a fun-filled, exciting December, packed with a variety of holiday activities. Our most recent design and engineering endeavor involved making frames. Students designed their frames on graph paper before measuring and sawing their wood pieces. They learned how to saw safely and efficiently, using a handsaw and wooden block. Their frames evolved into lanterns, picture frames, holiday decorations, and more.
We invited parents to come and share their holiday traditions with us. Traditions included holiday stories, traditions around food, holiday crafts, holiday songs and games, and traditions from other countries. We want to take this opportunity to thank those parents for sharing their time and traditions with us.
We wish you all a peaceful and relaxing holiday and a Happy New Year!
