Every week in writing Simon Learning Community focuses on a book and then participates in exploration. During Exploration students either do construction, felt boards, role play, lego, making/arranging, play doh, dash and dot, drawing or cooking focusing on the particular story. So far we have explored, read and written about Hansel and Gretel, Jack and The Beanstalk, Goldilocks and The Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man.
