LOCKHART — There’s all sorts of ways to learn in the classroom and some students at Lockhart School recently made use of one of those different types of learning.

A teacher writing on a chalkboard as students copy what is being written or the teacher delivering a lecture as the students take notes with pen and paper or reading a lesson out of a textbook are all traditional, classic ways of learning in the classroom.

However, there is another equally classic, traditional way of learning, and that is “hands on,” where students take part in classroom projects that not only require them to use their eyes and minds, but also to use their hands, and not just for holding a pencil or pen.

First grade students at Lockhart School recently took part in just such a hands on learning experience in Mrs. Shelley Vaughan’s room. They took part in projects that required them to use their hands in working with materials that would help them learn about and better understand mathematical concepts.

The classroom is a place of learning and there are all sorts of ways to learn, all of which should be used to help students understand the ideas and concepts put before them and grow and mature intellectually. By doing so, they will not only gain knowledge, but also an understanding of the learning process and the diverse methods of learning. They will also gain the ability to continue learning and growing throughout life and be better equipped and able to cope with a world that demands continuous learning in order to flourish in it.
