I wanted to reflect on one of the terrific partnerships the Shaw engaged in at the end of 2019. After studying existentialism in picture books, seniors from Boston Latin School visited with our K1, K2, and 1st grade classes. The 12th graders shared and read aloud the stories they had been studying. This was a chance for students from varying age ranges to interpret the books and enjoy stories togethers. Many of the Shaw students remembered this event from last year and were excited to get to know new Boston Latin School students. They loved showing off their classrooms and talking about what they were learning. Everyone got to share their thoughts about the books while completing book reviews. It was truly a meaningful experience for everyone involved.
Cheers to a new year and more engaging, collaborative learning experiences like this one!
