A very cool student-made shadow play

Below is a very cool student-made shadow play, shown in the latest Foundation Day of The Abba’s Orchard School, an awesome Montessori school I work for and where my kids go to.  The Foundation Day’s theme was One For Africa, and this shadow play was done by the Erdkinder (high school) group, which is where I work (and where my eldest daughter is a grade 7 student).

Note again that this beautiful project is 100% student-made.  It was conceptualized by students, choreographed by students, and executed by students.  All we teachers did was to encourage.

(By the way, thanks to the still unknown-to-me parent who took this video from the crowd)

What’s awesome with Montessori schools is that, if they’re authentically Montessori, they bring out and encourage whatever gifts that students have.  Check out the video below to see what I mean, and I’ve seen this in my own kids and the kids I serve as a teacher.

If you’re looking for a school for your children, consider The Abba’s Orchard School.  In fact, you can get a free 3-day trial if you’d like.  Just visit us (contact info is in the school’s website, and we have campuses in Manila, Davao, and Cebu as well, not just Cagayan de Oro)
