Karner Blue Room is an Upper Elementary classroom for levels 4-6 on the Toledo Campus. Jenny Kettler and Andrew Sautter are the classroom’s co-teachers.

For the first day of spring, the children spent some time this afternoon cleaning out cubbies and bins. Hopefully those dried salty spots from our long winter are gone until next season. It was also a good time to make sure the classroom was ready for the upcoming visit from the AMS Accreditation Team!

Fourth level students have simulated the trials and tribulations of survival for early humans by playing Hunters and Gatherers. In this simulation, the goal is to stay alive and prevent other members of your band from dying of starvation. This a popular activity that reinforces how difficult it was for early humans to obtain food and how cooperation was important for the bands’ success.

Everyone loves a good book!  On Friday, February 13, students participated in “Love a Good Book Day.”  The day began with a book exchange.  The exchange was a great way to pick up some different books to enjoy.

Next, students curled up in comfy pajamas with blankets, sleeping bags, stuffed animals, and of course,  a good book.  Most of the day was dedicated to immersing in a good story to promote the love of reading.

The day also featured an afternoon treat of hot cocoa and doughnut holes. It was a refreshing break from the daily work students are usually engaged in.

Luckily, we don’t have to wait for special days to enjoy our favorite stories.  Everyday is a day to love a good book!
