Each class spent a part of their day doing unique activities. In Creative Writing they
watched Michelle Obama’s last commencement speech as first lady of the United States. They
used it as an example for when they will be writing their own speech that will include a plot

For acting the kids were engaged in games of learning how to use their bodies and voices in
different ways on stage. As for painting and drawing, the students, to the sound of relaxing
music, sketched in their notebooks.
This is only examples of what a couple of classes did today. Meanwhile, the camp quilt has started getting constructed by the dance teacher, Miss Tessa. The quilt is made out of colorful squares of paper that have the students’ answers to the question of the day that was asked yesterday.
This shows how active and creative just one small part of a camp day is.
