It is so hard to summarize all the fun and learning that took place during our August Joint Learning Session. We studied Ancient Egypt, did research reports, played basketball, did art projects, and SO much more.
5/6 Grade Class– A few of their highlights were studying the human body and did research reports on an organ and performed a play about building the pyramids.
The 3/4 class worked hard on research projects on animals and fish and dioramas depicting Egyptian life and culture.
The 1/2 Grade class worked on superhero character traits, library skills, and did lots of hands on learning about Egypt.
The Kindergarten class met in the afternoons and focused on letters, counting, and learning about Egypt.
The 4-year old preschool class started the year with a unit on dinosaurs.
The 3-year old preschool class is a French Immersion class. They are learning body parts, weather, and emotions. They even play games in French.
Every year, the make-up of our staff changes a bit. Some are in Cameroon long-term, some for a few years and some for just one year. For however long each person is here, we know that God brought them to work with us for just this time…for just this class and these students. God is faithful!
