Third Grade Fingers Fly

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Tue, 10/30/2012 - 21:15

During the first few months of school, third grade students at Cherry Creek learned how to keyboard the right way!  We focused on using the correct fingers for each key, and using proper keyboarding position.  Now we know how to type all of the letters in home row position, and we're getting pretty fast at it!

Sensing Great Things in Kindergarten

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Sat, 10/27/2012 - 15:24

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!!

Sixth Grade Super Speed Math

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Wed, 10/17/2012 - 18:32

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.
