A School Unplugged
A Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute. That’s right no computers at all in the classroom. We were sold when we read one classroom of students ate their way through fractions by cutting apples, quesadillas, and cake into quarters, halves and sixteenths. The Waldorf School of the Peninsula is one of 160 Waldorf schools that focus on physical activity and learning through creative, hands-on-tasks. An interesting and refreshing teaching philosophy.
On that note, I think it is a good time to practice our fractions - hello cake.10/24/2011 sparkeology
