Last week Mrs. Bergera's kindergarten had so much fun learning about their 5 senses. Everyday they would explore the world around them with a different sense.  They saw different colors, smelled delicious fruit, listened for nursery rhymes, felt different textures in their classroom, and finish the unit by using their sense of taste to describe things that were sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. What a SMART group of kids we have at Cherry Creek Elementary!!

The sixth graders have begun Super Speed Math to become Super Improvers! Students, working as partners, review addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions in a timed race against their own best score. Students verbally answer as many problems as they can while their partner carefully looks at each answer and gives them immediate feedback if they miss one. The correction is made and the student continues racing against the clock. Within the first day, students were already improving the number of facts they could answer in 1 minute and became Super Improvers. This is a fun and exciting beginning to math instruction and takes only 5 minutes.

Orchestra rehearsal

The sixth grade orchestra program is well underway at Cherry Creek Elementary. Students are learning the basics of rhythm, counting, technique and instrument care. Music is a wonderful way to expand our cultural horizons, not to mention improve our math and reading skills.
