Our little learners discovered the magic of Diwali through the tale of "Binny's Diwali".  Each child created their very own diya and colored rangoli flowers.

Modified Soccer Game Parents vs. Kids was an absolute joy! 

Our youngers created some fantastic literary pumpkins! This tradition is a Taylor School favorite!

The 7/8 class has started their journey west through a Lewis and Clark simulation game. There are two Corps racing to the west coast and along the way, discovering the real-life challenges and decisions that faced the Corps of Discovery. The first activity chosen was a sewing challenge, where students hand-sewed a pouch. Another activity was to create a mulitple choice test on Sacagawea for the other Corps to take. This exciting adventure motivates students to learn all about history in a hands-on, minds-on way. 

Thank you to the Troy Fire Department for visiting our PreK - 4th grade students today to talk about fire safety and fire prevention. Our students had a blast exploring the fire truck, seeing the fireman in full gear and learning about the tools they use to fight fires. It was the perfect way to end National Fire Prevention Month!

The middle school students created some show-stopping literary pumpkins this year! Our middle school kids have been creating pumpkins each year at Taylor, so by the time they are in 8th grade they have built the skills to become masters! 

The students were thrilled to be pumpkin investigators while using their five senses to scoop out the inside of a pumpkin, and explore  the different parts of a pumpkin. Some classroom favorite activities include making witches brew in the sensory table, sculpting jack-o'-lanterns with play dough, painting pumpkins, and using straws to blow paint to create ghosts.
