1ST GRADE

Your First Graders completed their Doceri's and have uploaded them to Google Drive. Their topic was a family member or family pet and writing similes about that person's or animal's traits.

2ND GRADE

Second Grade scholars recorded/created Doceris on their extinct creature. These are uploaded into their GT LEAD Google folders.

3RD GRADE

Third Graders have started their presentations of Think Like a Disciplinarian. They have researched colleges, wages of career choice, work environment, and why the job/career is important. The also created scripts and brought or borrowed props to use while presenting. Some of the third graders appear in this S'More and the rest appear in the early November S'More.

4TH GRADE

Fourth Graders have finished up their EXPLORE research and are now getting ready to work on their products and presentations. We were fortunate to have Mr. Smith as our WatchDog, as he served as our Emcee for "Did you know..."! In the other fourth grade group students "explored" the RECAP APP, and they were able to share their "Did you knows..." that way.

5TH GRADE

There's an APP for That... Awesome Presentations! Students participated in a Shark Tank environment while presenting. Some of them really took it a step further by making business cards, using props, and creating jingles.
