The arts teach students countless lessons - they build critical thinking skills, teach organization of ideas and work, provide connective learning, develop the understanding that small differences can have large effects, affords equity amongst all learners, facilitates collaboration leading to creativity, and the list could go on and on.

Everything we know about the universe, from how trees reproduce, to what an atom is made up of, to technology and inventions, is the result of scientific research and experiment.

Season of Gratitude

We hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday full of laughter and joy. The staff here at ClassOrbit, wants to extend our gratitude for our loyal educators, students, and community members for all your continued support throughout the years. We cannot put into words the appreciation we have for you all! As we all know, the holiday season is full of activities, but it is the perfect chance to stay in a season of gratitude. It is a chance to re-energize your body and mind, refocus on personal goals, and reconnect with what matters in your life. Bring the kids and students in your life into the mix by embracing this season of gratitude. Here are some creative ways to stay in a present state of appreciation:


National Gratitude Month
#Teacher2Teacher  |  November 2, 2022

National Gratitude Month

November is National Gratitude Month and it provides us with the opportunity to actively embrace the power of gratitude. Gratitude is so much more than simply saying “thank you”. Reflecting on that for which we are grateful, is an important way for people to feel satisfaction with themselves and their current state, rather than dissatisfaction with what they don’t have. Practicing daily gratitude or “thankful thinking” gives us a deeper connection to ourselves, builds better interpersonal relationships, helps us develop stronger bonds with others, and connects us to the world around us.


Clean Hands, Sound Bodies
#Teacher2Teacher  |  October 19, 2022

Clean Hands, Sound Bodies

As we look at the vibrant leaves and breathe in the brisk air outside, it is evident fall has arrived and is planning to stay. As so many of us educators experience, the cooler air that fall and winter brings can often affect our immune systems and bring about increased susceptibility to colds and flu. Teaching about germs and reinforcing the concept of handwashing can evolve into an entire week-long science series.

Summer Highlight
#Teacher2Teacher  |  July 13, 2022

Summer Highlight

Farmer's markets, for me, are one of the highlights of the summer season. There’s nothing that compares to eating as you shop, gathering your fresh fruits, veggies, and proteins for the week! Even better, you get the opportunity to have real conversations with the local farmers and vendors who set up booths for their produce or locally handcrafted products.


Global Citizen

Internet Safety

The Internet along with online programs and apps can be wonderful tools for kids. They can use these tools to research people or topics, communicate with experts or their peers, and continue sharpening their skills… especially while away from school during these summer months.


Here Comes the Sun
