Can you Paint with all the Colors of the Wind?

The WFS kids were exploring shades and tints earlier in the week. Mixing colors with white and black, they used only their imagination and their little fingers to create these beautiful pieces of art!

This Halloween, our students were given the theme of Literature. The students were to dress up as a character from their favorite book and along with their costume, they brought their books. They had quite the night of treats!

Listen to Your Heart

Why does our heart speed up when we jump? Why does it slow down when we sit still? The WFS kids played doctor earlier this week and found out for themselves!

Feeling Slugs in the Garden

Earlier this week, our kids at WFS were exploring their sense of touch with slobbery slugs! They had some pretty funny things to say.

Halloween Fun!

Last week the WFS kids carved pumpkins! They cut out the bottom first and then they worked their way towards the inside...they had a blast!

Are We There Yet?

       Are we there yet?! The elementary class had a blast earlier this week as we took them on a scavenger hunt around Uptown Whittier. This lesson combined social studies, community service and PE. The students were avidly using maps and following directions to get to their awaiting prize. For the first prize they needed to find a location labeled on a map of Uptown Whittier and on the way, they helped make Whittier just a little bit cleaner. The second clue used  cardinal directions to lead them to their prize. The third prize, a trip to Starbucks for ice water and chocolate milk, required them to follow Google Maps style directions. Once we left Starbucks the students were given the cross street location for the fourth prize and they had to determine the location on the map and the best way to get there. Finally, the students found their way back to the school for one last treat: pumpkin carving.
