Fun in the Sun at Eckhart Park

May 22, 2012

The Glover Room spent the morning playing and laughing at Eckhart Park. The students had a great time playing on the playground, drawing with sidewalk chalk and playing soccer. May has been a beautiful month to play outside and the students wasted no time in seizing the opportunity to go to the park. The beautiful weather was reflected in their smiling faces.


Pritzker College Prep Visits Rowe

May 4, 2012

AmeriCorps teacher from Pritzker College Prep, Mr. Cella, escorted five freshmen volunteers to Rowe Elementary School’s After School Program on Friday, April 27, 2012. Pritzker students learned how to facilitate creative writing activities during sessions with 826CHI. The high school students guided scholars from K-4 through the process of creating their own characters and brainstorming unique stories about those characters. Overall, was a great time. The volunteers showed strong facilitation skills and genuine interest in working with Rowe scholars.


The Marvels of Marbles!

May 3, 2012

In the Glover room, once again, Mr. Zak showed the students a great and easy art activity! All you need is a few marbles, paper, a tray and paint to create a magnificent marble painting! Mr. Zak had the students tilt the tray in different directions to create unique patterns on the paper. The kids enjoyed watching the marble flow through the paint to create a new color. This creative activity can be done at school or at home, so have a ball!
