I think the best thing about Vermont Commons is how hands-on everything is. We don’t just learn the material, we go out and do it. Almost every day we get out of the classroom. Instead of reports and presentations, we make art or skits to explain concepts. My favorite subject is Language Arts. I like it because I love to write and read. Is there more to be said?
I am looking forward to being mixed with older kids for Encounter Week and Research and Service. I loved the sixth grade but I think it will be great to spend time with, and get to know, older and newer people. I am also looking forward to new and different Encounter Weeks.
I write, read, dance, act, make origami, draw, read, play board games, and read more.
