Chapman Hills Newsletter
Teacher of the Year and Classified Employee of the Year
Congratulations to Kirstin Safa Chapman Hills Elementary Teacher of the Year and Nichole Boyd Chapman Hills Elementary Classified Employee of the year. Mrs. Safa was nominated by her peers for being an energetic and a true life-long learner. Ms. Boyd was nominated by her peers for being someone who is always willing to help whether that be with students on the playground or in the RSP room.
This month the first graders began a science unit on weather. They kicked it off by flying kites which directly tied into our literature story called The Kite. They recently did some learning about the sun and shadows (thanks Groundhog Day) and soon we will move into learning about clouds.
The fourth grade class created a technology enhanced Mission's Project this year by utilizing the Aurasma application on the school's IPads. The students researched a Mission and created a verbal presentation with their Mission research. In collaborative pairs, the students filmed each other's presentations. Finally with a drawing of their Mission, they created a visual "trigger" point in which the video would overlay onto their artwork. The artwork is displayed in the classrooms so that the students can learn about the other Missions from their own peers. The project was well-received by the students, who eagerly "zap" other images to learn about those missions.
