Welcome New Readers!
If you're visiting the Opal School Blog for the first time because you've linked from the story that includes us on the Edutopia blog, welcome! We're glad to have you here and are excited to share the wonder of learning with visitors from around the world. We think that the "Makers" work discussed in AnnMarie Thomas' post is representative of the incredible imagination and creativity children explore when provided by rich environments and experiences – but it's just the tip of the iceberg.
Perhaps you've found us on Pinterest or through a search after reading this post on the Let Children Play blog. Or maybe you've just seen Steve Davee's latest post over at Make Education. We are glad you've come!
Go deeper into our story through exploring this site, watching the videos posted on The Center for Children's Learning youtube channel, checking out our publications or participating in one of our professional development programs - either here in Portland or from a distance via Opal School Online.
We invite you subscribe and to participate. Thank you for visiting!
