Ms. Conway's Class
Tawanka children are learning and practicing eye-foot coordination while playing kickball games in gym this week.
Ms. Neff's Class
The boys and girls in Mrs. Neff's Kindergarten class filled their Button Jar for remembering to raise their hands and show Tawanka Eagle expectations. As their reward, they voted to eat lunch outside at the kindergarten playground. What a fun memory to take with them as they head to first grade!
Ms. Trotta's Class
We are engineers! Students in Miss Trotta's class worked together to help Danny the Duck! His pond was filled with trash. Students worked together to create something to remove the trash from the pond. Everyone worked hard and created something to help Danny in the pond. Great work my engineers!
Ms. Fedele and Ms. Wells Classes
Mrs. Fedele and Ms. Wells had the most participants sign up for the Sunset Challenge and were rewarded with an extra P.E. period.
Ms. Atwater's Class
Mrs. Phillips' Class
Mrs. Phillips' class put on a Readers' Theater for the rest of the second grade using their weekly reading story, "When It Rains". It was a success!
Mrs. Sylvester's Class
Mrs. Tryon's Class
The students in Mrs. Tryon’s class made perfectly symmetrical butterflies. They drew half of the butterfly, traced it with a crayon, then transferred the image to the other side of the paper by rubbing the image with a wooden block. Making sure to color the design symmetrically as well. The result… some beautiful butterflies!
Mr. Finkel's Class
Mr. Finkel's class made their own 2D/3D obstacle course race while calculating area and perimeter.
Ms. McHugh's Class
As a math extension activity, the fourth grade students got together with their buddy class to measure and graph their heights.
