Third Grade Math Sort

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Mon, 03/31/2014 - 22:24
3rd grade students do a relay sort to decide the similarities and differences in these shapes. Is it a quadrilateral, polygon, parallelogram, or other? Can some shapes fit in more than one category? Thanks Starr David for this fun activity... We love student teachers at Cherry Creek!

Mrs. Bergera's kindergarten classes have had an amazing opportunity over the past 3 months to work with a fun student teacher named Ms. Jones.   Ms. Jones has been an outstanding teacher and we are sure going to miss her. Thanks for all your hard work Ms. Jones!!

Medieval Banquet

The sixth graders' medieval unit culminated in a day of festivities! We held a banquet, eating lunch together, holding a fabulous talent show and playing a game of capture the flag, having challenged another grade level to a duel. We appreciate our parents and support staff for their help in setting up and cleaning up as well as the students for their hard work. Check out Facebook for lots more photos!

Science Centers in Sixth Grade

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on Mon, 03/03/2014 - 22:28
Sixth graders got to explore a little deeper about microorganisms in class this week. They created their own slides using gutter water, looked at insect wings and other specimens through a microscope, created and wrote about a germ, made flip books to simulate the movement of bacteria and diagrammed a microscope. The students really enjoyed the microscope centers. All this fun was just another day in sixth grade! Check out Facebook for more photos!
