Just before school ended for the summer, students in Christine Wirth’s and Jennifer Seed’s Pre-K classes at Riverton Elementary School participated in a Side x Side program led by teaching artists, Meg Christie and Lisa Hicks. Side x Side purchased copies of the book, “We are Growing,” by Laurie Keller, for each student which were delivered to student’s homes along with a selection of additional books provided by the classroom teachers. Students met with their teachers and teaching artists via Zoom to engage in movement and improv activities associated with spring and growth with Meg Christie and dance activities related to “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” with Lisa Hicks. We are so impressed with the dedication of Portland’s classroom teachers as they threw their hearts into making online learning creative and fun!
