Nests are comprised of every teacher leading a lesson with students from every grade. Each Nest has students from kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade. The same students stay in these Nest groups throughout their elementary education at Barnard. The purpose of staying together as a group is to help students develop relationships with other students outside of their grades and develop relationships with other teachers. The lessons covered in the Nests are about positive personal character traits such as honesty, kindness, teamwork, etc.
Below are the lessons that have been taught. Lessons will be added throughout the year.
