A Magical First Grade Field Trip

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Mon, 10/21/2013 - 19:10
First grade went on a field trip to the Scera Theater to watch the play "The Magical Adventures of Merlin". They saw a lot of magic tricks as well as heard fun music. After the play, they were able to do a Q & A with the actors. They asked questions about the magic on the set and why they liked acting. It was fun to find out about all the fun things that go into putting on a play.

Mrs. Golding's class loved learning all about Columbus sailing the ocean blue in fourteen hundred ninety-two! They loved making and wearing hats just like Columbus; making and eating a "ship snack;" and writing about it too!

Unit Rate Reteach Relay

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 19:23
A sixth grade reteach group today had an exciting relay game to fine tune their math skills of finding unit rate. Teams of 4 had to race across the playing field, grab a math question, such as "21 oz of Cheerios for $2.99", calculate the unit rate, then race back across the field to place their answer in the right sorting bucket. The students did great solving real-world math problems, had fun in the sun and showed good sportsmanship.

Race to the Top

Mrs. Bergera's Kindergarten class had a great time on Tuesday working with a partner to play a fun new math game. This week we are working with the numbers 0-5. To help each student practice writing the numbers 0-5, each partner had to take turns rolling a dot cube, counting the dots, and writing the numbers 0-5 on their paper. The first person who wrote all the numbers to the top won!! What great kids we have in Kindergarten!!
