The Month That Was...April 2014


  • Page Turner's Book Club will continue to meet until the very last day of school!
  • Kindergarten has found the answers to the questions that we had about hippos and tortoises after reading the book, Owen and Mzee. Our results have been compiled into a book for each student so we may share our learning with others at home.
  • First graders are busy creating a movie about what we have learned about our planets.
  • Second graders are wrapping up their biography study and are working hard on their Caldecott Challenge. Up next is an introduction to the KC3 reading program for incoming third graders!
  • Third graders continue to work on their second round of Genius Hour Projects. We have had a lot of success using a Google Doc to trap our learning. A to Z Mysteries are on the mind of third grade readers as they are in the midst of an exciting reading challenge!
  • fourth, and fifth graders continue working on their second round of Genius Hour projects. We evaluated our first round of learning and based on that, changed what was not working well. So much learning, problem-solving, and collaborating is happening! Several students are working on sharing their learning with others.
