Rainbow Room



Teacher: Mike Rindt     


Rainbow Room is a multi-age class of grades first-second-third who learn, play, create and grow at their own pace and rhythm. The focus is on the individual's developmental readiness to succeed in academic areas such as reading, writing, math and science as well as the social-emotional realms of inter- and intra-personal dynamics. Much emphasis is placed on social agreements and how students interact with the classroom community. Many opportunities are presented in a hands-on, experiential format for a student to learn about and develop their own natural intelligence. The curriculum is integrated and thematic with an emphasis on the practical and expressive arts. A healing environment is maintained with Brain Gym, movement and singing for brain-compatible and heart-enriched learning. Accessing nature and the outdoors as a living classroom is also a strong focus for Rainbow Room
