Train Your Brain - Hand Gestures & Signals
Whole Brain Teaching is an approach designed toward maximizing student engagement, and focusing on the way the brain is really designed to learn. One way to use whole brain teaching is by using hand gestures and signals in the classroom. Here are just a few examples of how we use gestures and signals at Oakhill Day School.

Second Grade Performs "Sick" by Shel Silverstein
Oakhill Day School second grade students perform a "Sick" by Shel Silverstein. "Sick" by Shel Silverstein Sick Sick "I cannot go to school today," Said little Peggy Ann McKay. "I have the measles and the mumps, A gash, a rash and purple bumps. My mouth is wet, my throat is dry, I'm going blind in my right eye. My tonsils are as big as rocks, I've counted sixteen chicken pox And there's one more - that's seventeen, And don't you think my face looks green? My leg is cut, my eyes are blue - It might be instamatic flu. I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke, I'm sure that my left leg is broke - My hip hurts when I move my chin, My belly button's caving in, My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained, My 'pendix pains each time it rains. My nose is cold, my toes are numb, I have a sliver in my thumb. My neck is stiff, my spine is weak, I hardly whisper when I speak. My tongue is filling up my mouth, I think my hair is falling out. My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight, My temperature is one-o-eight. My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear, There is a hole inside my ear. I have a hangnail, and my heart is - what? What's that? What's that you say? You say today is ... Saturday? G'bye, I'm going out to play!" © by owner. provided at no charge for educational purposes

Writing a Process Analysis Essay
Process analysis essays are directions that explain how to do something, how something works, or how something happens. Can these students read their own written directions and have someone else follow them from start to finish while producing their intended outcome? Looking for more classroom ideas?

Cooking with Chef J: Winter Squash Soup
Join Chef Justin Kieslich of Oakhill Day School as he prepares a quick 15 min. Winter Squash Soup... perfect dinner as the weather turns cooler! Winter (blue hubbard or butternut) Squash Soup Ingredients: 1/2 pint heavy cream 1 dried bay leaf 2 fresh sage leaves 1/2 stick butter 3 chopped carrots 2 chopped celery stalks 1 chopped onion 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4teaspoon cayenne 2 cups blue hubbard puree (see instructions below) 1/4 flour 32 oz stock (chicken or vegetable) salt & pepper Directions for Blue Hubbard Puree: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 2. Slice Hubbard into halves or quarters (whatever is a manageable size) and scoop out the seeds. Place pieces on a foil-line baking sheet 3. Rub olive oil or butter on exposed flesh 4. Roast for 45-60 minutes. Squash is done when you can poke a fork all the way through the flesh with ease. 5. Let the squash cool for about 10 minutes and then scoop out the flesh and place in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is creamy. 6. Whatever you don't you immediately, you can freeze indefinitely until you are ready for further use. Directions for Blue Hubbard Squash Soup: 1. Steep bay and sage leaves in the cream by bringing the cream to boil and then lowering the temperature so that it is at a low simmer. Keep the temp low and keep your eye on it, the moment I turn my back or turn it up too high, this always boils over and makes a mess! 2. While your herbs steep in the cream, prep the other ingredients 3. In a soup pot, melt the butter and cook the onions, carrots, and celery until softened 4. Add nutmeg, cayenne (omit this if you don't like spicy foods), and salt and pepper to taste 5. Pour in squash puree and flour 6. Add stock and cook at a simmer for 30 minutes 7. Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy (but be sure to start the blender at low so that it doesn't splatter everywhere) 8. Pull out the herbs from the cream and discard them, then add the cream to the soup and stir To learn more about our Farm 2 School lunch program...
