Guided Math Centers

Submitted by janelle.barrett on

Guided math is in full swing in Mrs. Braithwaite's first grade!  They have been working on this goal since day one and they finally reached their goal of doing all 4 rotations.  These first graders in her class are pros at subitizing, tally marks, math apps on the ipads, and recognizing numbers and counting to 20.  First grade rocks and so do these smart firsties!

Regrouping in Third Grade

Submitted by janelle.barrett on

Ms. David's third grade students have been learning about addition and regrouping this week. They learned a song and came up with their own hand gestures to help them remember the steps of completing a regrouping problem. Later, they will learn other parts of the song to help with other regrouping problems. Check out the video of the song on our facebook page Cherry Creek Elementary. Way to make learning fun, Ms. David!

Wildly Important Goals

Submitted by janelle.barrett on

Yesterday's WIG assembly featured several teachers strutting down the red carpet wearing hilarious wigs. But this assembly was really about introducing this year's wildly important goals for the whole school. The first WIG is for the entire school to collectively move up 1,800 reading levels. The second WIG is for all students to be in their classroom by 9:00 90% of the time. This will take extra help from parents to make sure that kids get out the door on time. The rewards for reaching the reading WIG is that the kids will have a water party at the end of the year.

Synergy Bracelets

Submitted by janelle.barrett on

Students in Mrs. Call's class made synergy bracelets to learn about Habit #6: Synergize. Students picked two colors for their bracelet--one to represent themselves, and one to represent everyone else. They learned to weave the two colors together to remind them that we're "better together."
