Portfolio Night

Winterhaven takes portfolio night seriously. Students keep their work in a binder and periodically open them to inspection by guardians.

The concept map helps connect ideas in a graphical form. Students also create concept maps as mobiles that hang from the ceiling.

Seventh graders have been studying the Platonic Polyhedra, among others, along with Euler's Law for Polyhedra: V + F = E + 2.

The theater program is also important at Winterhaven and this time featured students' powers of articulation and memorization, drawing from Shel Silverstein's Runny Babbit poems. Tara has been a Silverstein fan for some time. PKL has a book of his cartoons in its collection.
