Review Games

Students in Mrs. Kramer's class at Bryceville Elementary completed the Math Chapter Review from the book alone for about 10 minutes, then reviewed with their teammates for about 5. They discussed the answers as a class. If students got the question correct, they toss the ball into the basket and get bonus points. At the end of the game, the team with the most points gets a prize (usual candy).

Thank you Lowe's

Mrs. Lesoine's Access Points class at Fernandina Beach Middle School has been working on their life skills. The students worked on measuring ingredients as they made their Mug Cakes. They made applesauce, chocolate, and banana Mug Cakes and shared them with a teacher or administrator who is special to them. The class also worked on their carpentry skills and followed the how-to-make instructions provided as they built periscopes. The kits were compliments of Lowe's Build It Yourself Kid's Workshop.
