A Tour of the City

May 5, 2021 | Sossi Essajanian

After a walking trip, close observation of buildings, and construction in the block area, the Sky Class children were ready to give people a city tour.

First some final touches and a practice tour for Mrs. Jordan…

Now let the tours begin!

With their partner, each child took a turn using the class iPad to record their partner talking about their construction.

What blocks did you use?

What materials did you use to make the details?

Here are the buildings you will find around this city…

The library

The hospital

The restaurant

The apartment building

And finally… the gazebo and the playground in the park!

Sossi Essajanian

Teacher, Sky Class

Sossi Essajanian is excited to continue her teaching and learning journey at the Mustard Seed School. She began teaching at the United Nations International School where she worked with children and colleagues from around the world. This inspired her to take a primary teaching position abroad in Nicosia, Cyprus, where she lived and worked for two years.

Ms. Essajanian has a passion for supporting children’s social/emotional skills and learning through a loving and caring classroom community. These are built on creating shared understandings and opportunities for children to identify and express their feelings and of those around them. She believes in creating experiences through pair and group work where learning blossoms through social experiences.

Ms. Essajanian also enjoys reading and talking about books and continues to pursue her second passion: editing. She’s worked in various editorial capacities in newspapers, magazines, and books. She was recently excited to serve as the development editor of a children’s book about engineering and is looking forward to leading some tinkering investigations of her own with her students!

In her free time Ms. Essajanian runs, swims laps, and likes to take long walks to explore the world around her.
