What better way to spend inside recess days than give service! Mrs. Grotegut, one of our Title 1 technicians, kept our 5th and 6th grade students busy during lunch recess by having them decorate cards and place mats to give to the Meals on Wheels program. Today, they made 43 cards and 13 place mats! This will surely bring smiles to those who participate in Meals on Wheels. What an inspirational way to spend free time! Way to go, Crocs!

Science in Kindergarten

This week in Kindergarten we are focusing on non-living things.  Today during science, the students used their imaginations to make non-living things found in our world.  Creations included a house boat, an airplane, a food truck, a tractor, a construction work place, and a train!  We love doing hands-on projects in class!!

3rd Grade Math Sports

Miss Brice's class reviews their multiplication facts by playing sports! Students practicing certain fact families (multiples of 2 or 10, for example) get to play tennis. Other fact families play hockey, and some basketball. It's a fun way to keep the kids motivated. They get a lot of opportunities to practice with the support of a classmate. Math is always fun in our class!

Cherry Creek's second year of math instruction training (CMI) is well underway! Every other Monday afternoon, teachers participate in lessons and activities to improve math instruction and learning in their classrooms. Today's lesson involved teachers instructing teachers in other grade levels on how to complete various problems using specific strategies. The goal is to achieve improved conceptualization and understanding of math calculations and real life problems. Our teachers do so much to provide the best possible education for our students. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
