Black History Month at Delphi Boston

March is just beginning, making us think back to all of the wonderful educational experiences that went on here at Delphi Boston during the course of February. 

One highlight we wanted to share was our celebration of Black History Month. We spent the month diving into and learning about the people that have been an important part of the stories which make up black history. 

We ended the month with some wonderful student presentations as well as a few visits from some very impressive heroes, forever reminded to, “Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.” —Dr. Mae Jemison, first African-American female astronaut. 

It was certainly an exciting month that our students loved taking part in. We are looking forward to what new experiences March holds.

Be sure to stay updated on our exciting adventures by checking in on our monthly blog posts as well as our daily Twitter, Instagram and Facebook posts! Here’s to another wonderful month. 


What Makes Delphi Boston Different?

Delphi Academy of Boston has a different method of teaching and studying than any other school. But what is it exactly that makes our school so different?

 

Starting in the Lower School, students are doing independent study guides (checksheets) such as; Measure a Foot, Globes, Clay Person, Continents, Grow a Plant, Address an Envelope, Making Invitations and Thank You Notes, Flat Shapes, and more. There are sixteen of these guides. These study guides are for 5, 6 and 7-year-old students. 

 

Throughout the Lower, Elementary and Middle School programs, students continue studying independently with an increasing gradient of subjects and their difficulty levels. They learn at their own pace which allows them to take the time they need to totally comprehend subjects. 

 

Not only are students studying at their own pace through an independent program, but we see everyday that they are truly excited to be learning while getting validated for knowing the information upon examination in Standards. They have a chance to see just how fun studying can be through practically applying data they learn in order to showcase to others and themselves that they can understand any subject they have the desire to explore. 

 

This is just a brief highlight of how different and incredible our school is. Schedule a tour today to see if our unique program is right for your child! We are excited to hear from you. 


Delphi Boston Adventures!

Every day here at Delphi Boston is a new adventure. Whether that’s through the discovery of new lands in a story book, experiencing new ways to practically apply subjects to life or seeing unique sights while on one of our exciting field trips: there is always something new and exciting that our students are exploring. Here are a few fun activities to look out for this month on our social media accounts:

On February 6th we will be taking our Elementary and Middle School students to the Wheelock Family Theater to see the play Little Women. This will give a chance for our students to experience the selflessness demonstrated from the characters in this play as well as a brief view into a different time period. 

On February 20th the Lower School will be visited by Barn Babies giving our students the chance to experience some absolutely adorable animals, extending their reality of care into other dynamics of life. 

On February 28th we will have an all-school Friday dress up day! This will give our students a chance to dress professionally in order to get a fun taste of how they might dress while applying for jobs or going to work later on in life. It’ll give a chance to dream up what their future jobs might look like and where they may want to end up working as young adults. 

Stay tuned for updates through February. We are excited to explore new adventures with you this next month!


Our New Music Program!

Here at Delphi Boston, we love introducing our students to new and exciting learning experiences. This January we decided to take a new approach to our music program by hiring a new and full-time music teacher: Mr. Bret.

With a growing student body, we are able to expand the reaches of our programs in ways we could have only imagined in past years! We are beyond excited for the doors this new program will open up for our bright students.

Exciting Announcement!

Lens CAP Productions

Delphi Boston has a very exciting announcement… This January we will be starting a new preschool classroom!

The new preschool classroom will help to increase our enrollment by potentially ten students. 

We are so excited for Ms. Pam’s return to Delphi Academy as a preschool teacher. Ms. Pam worked here about 15 years ago.  She decided to open her own daycare, which she ran for 15 years in her home.  She has a very strong love for Delphi and over the years has referred 18 children to our school.

Preschool is an essential part of a child’s education where we as educators have a chance to help build a basic foundation in reading, math, writing and even learning to use a pencil correctly.  They have a lot of fun learning songs, dancing and creating beautiful art projects.  They also participate in physical education every day.

We are very excited to share this expansion with you and we can’t wait to see you and your children experiencing the new classroom this coming semester!

We can’t wait to see you there!


Books to Read Aloud With Your Kids

Reading aloud with your kids is not only a great way to spend quality time together, but it’s a way to increase their interest in reading. With every paragraph, you can find new ways to connect with your kids through shocking plot twists, crazy characters, and exciting new worlds.

Here at Delphi Boston, we’ve compiled a list of some captivating children’s books that we hope you can pick up and start reading with your kids! Enjoy!

  1. Elvis is King is bold, vibrant, and captivating — just like its main character. Illustrated with moody clay figures, this book captures both Elvis’s amazing life and the heart of rock ‘n’ roll.
  2. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. This brilliant story is written by the imaginative Kate Dicamillo. The story is beautiful and delicate and miraculous. DiCamillo’s books can be sad but they are always transformative and deeply and profoundly moving.
  3. Matilda. Roald Dahl’s books are all must-reads, and Maltida is no exception. It’s a wonderful read-aloud book filled with adventure and magic that is bound to keep you and your kids captivated.
  4. When Sadness is at your door. This is a fantastic book for the younger ones. Kids often struggle to understand their emotions, especially tough ones such as anger and sadness. This book gives parents a comforting way to positively handle sadness with their kids.
  5. The Westing Game. A fantastic mystery book to pick up with the kids. The Westing Game was written and published in 1979. It won the Newbery Medal recognizing the year’s most distinguished contribution to American children’s literature. Definitely a must-read.

Reading is an important part of a family’s daily routine. It’s also an important part of our lives here at Delphi Boston. Make sure you don’t miss out on our Open House happening October 26th from 10 am – 12 pm. We can’t wait to see you there, and in the meantime, get reading!

Here at Delphi Boston, we’ve found a collection of fun and affordable lunch boxes that can get your kids more excited to head off to school:

Why a Bedtime Ritual is an Important Piece of the School Year

Four Fun Activities for You and Your Child to Do At Home

With the school year in full swing, our hectic lives are reaching a new level of craziness. From soccer games and homework to figuring out what to make for lunch/dinner, it’s important that we keep a few routines in.

A bedtime routine is an essential part of your life. Not only will it ensure that the family is getting enough sleep to fuel your crazy days, but it can also be a great chance to connect with your kids. Here are a few steps to a positive bedtime routine:

  1. Start off the bedtime routine with a read-aloud session. Not only is this a calming activity but it is also an educational one. It gives you the opportunity to teach your kids new ideas and language skills. It’s also a great chance to peek into the imagination of your children.
  2. Get them in the bathroom to brush their teeth. This step is a must-have in any bedtime routine; we just had to throw it in. It’s essential for their health and can also be the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about self-care.
  3. Have some one-on-one time with the kids before putting them to bed. This step is a great way to talk to your kids and give them the attention they deserve. Find out what happened during the day and how they can make tomorrow. Discover what your kids are thinking and establish a trusting communication system with them.
  4. Let them own the routine. It’s important that your kids feel like they have some control and ownership over their bedtime. You can do this by giving them choices such as what PJs they want to wear, what bedtime music they want to listen to, who will bathe first, etc. Knowing it is their routine will increase their willingness to get in bed at the proper time.
  5. Finally, don’t forget to tell your kids how much you love them!
