It’s very hard to believe today marks the beginning of our second week. One week done! It feels like we started 20 minutes ago. Friendships are growing every day. Teachers are getting used to their students every hour. And everyone is getting more comfortable in the program. It’s amazing to see new students fully immersed in Shader Croft culture. If you were hovering above Winooski Middle School, you’d see all kinds of action and fun.
The students worked on Ernest Hemingway style six word stories. Here are samples of their work.
teacher student, working together, having fun
Friends working together. Smell the dumplings

Where are you? There you are!
Brown fur. Big machines. Happy Children.
I like making food. Made Falafel!
Learn to Swim
Cool pool. Hot sun. Good time!
Missing one day. Not in picture.
There are eyes everywhere we go
Recreational trips galore was the name of the game today! Half of the group went on a hike to Indian Brook in Essex, while the other half had a swimming day at the YMCA Myers Municipal Pool in Winooski. It’s no wonder Shader Crofters’ are sooo tired at the end of the day.
Now, here is my six word story for tomorrows adventures.
Day-6 at SCS
Academic aspirations. Airport adventure. Artistic action!
