redwing class

with Alexa Buchanan

our seventh grade

The seventh-grade students will start the year with the basic laws of perspective drawing. This creative yet disciplined activity helps the children who are on the threshold of adolescence to develop a greater interest in the world and to metaphorically look beyond what is right in front of them.

During roll call, each student stands when his or her name is called and answers "I am here." It is beneficial to the student and their classmates to hear and see that each one is present. Standing upright and allowing oneself to be seen and heard has a strengthening effect on a person's sense of responsibility. This moment also gives the teacher a chance to gauge the mood and energy of each individual student.
