Sixth Grade Science Fair

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Sat, 02/08/2014 - 14:32
The sixth graders and a select few fifth graders participated in the annual science fair on Friday, February 7. Students had been working on the scientific process in class and were able to apply those principles as they spent a month preparing for the fair. All students were able to choose their own topic, usually something of interest to them, do some research, and text their hypothesis. There was a great turn out of parents, family and fellow students at the walk through of the science fair.

100 Days of First Grade

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Thu, 02/06/2014 - 19:46
First grade celebrated the 100th day of school by doing a number of different things. We wrote about what we want to do before we are 100 years old. We created ten groups if ten and then drew them onto white t-shirts. We made 100 day hats and glasses and necklaces with 100 beads grouped into ten different colors. We did a number of different math and literacy games including a 100 count Hershey kiss hunt and writing about what we do if we had $100.  It was a fun day of counting to 100 and now we can say that we are 100 days smarter!!!

Dare to Compare

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Tue, 02/04/2014 - 18:22
Third grade students played this tricky game to compare fractions. To advance, or to win the game, the players must correctly decide which fraction is bigger on the spot that they land on. They can use fraction bars, draw fractions circles, use a fraction number, or if they are really good... Use the rules of comparing fractions. Anyone want to challenge these third grade fraction masters?!

Kindergarten Measurement

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Thu, 01/30/2014 - 10:30

For the past couple of weeks, we have been having fun learning about measurement in Kindergarten.  We measured various lengths around the classroom, weighed classroom supplies on a scale, and even made our own balance scale pictures to hang up in the hallway.  We sure love exploring fun math concepts!!
