TINKER TIME"Take risks, fail early and fail often, make mistakes- that’s how you learn!" These are things we say all the time to our students and to our teachers!
What better way to test out ideas and think creatively than to Tinker? Tinkering is an exercise in taking risks, getting real results, both positive and negative, and innovating. While tinkering, children explore materials and learn new skills such as sewing, coding, hammering, drilling, circuits, cooking, and building. Tinkering is one of the Signature Practices at The Cove and promotes creativity across all grade levels.
This student-directed learning time allows students to play, pursue passions and develop a sense of competency and purpose. What better way to innovate than to think with your hands to explore your creativity.
