The Goldfish and Starfish embarked on a study of Frida Kahlo. They learned about her artistic life, where she was from and about her love for making self-portraits. Our pre-K curriculum already incorporates self-portraits, so this was the perfect way to connect the study of Frida Kahlo to a familiar theme.

This year, we began an effort to both explicitly teach these skills to our Lower Division grades at the start of the year and also weave these concepts throughout all we do for the rest of the school year.
