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.

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.
