It's sort of "competitive problem solving"...it's a team of kids (7 kids or less) that have to present a "play" based on a "problem" they choose/or are given. They also do spontaneous problem solving. It's a great way to teach them to work in a group, team work, think creatively, etc. It's super fun!

Today...I met with the parents, we all talked...then I took a 4'x4' piece of paper and taped it to the floor. They all sat around it with a big bucket of markers and each kiddo wrote/drew what they are good at. All good points about themselves all over the paper. It's now hanging in the formal dining room (ha) so that through this year they can look at it and see that they all have different strengths, but EACH of them has a LOT of them...

We also did team building activities...a problem solving activity...(taking certain materials and trying to build something within a certain time frame)...they learned a lot about themselves today...and I can't wait to see how much they grow and achieve this year with it all! Super fun day....
