Mission Impossible Hook

This is a fun one because kids love to feel like they are trying to solve a mystery. Begin by choosing one of your teacher-directed lessons and design it so that the students are solving a mystery instead. Perhaps you create a scavenger hunt through the content. You may still present some of the information, but instead of just being passive learners, the students can actively work to ask questions and find additional information to help them "figure out" the answers to the mystery.

When you get ready to present the lesson, find the "Mission Impossible" theme song on Youtube and play it to get your kids excited for what's ahead. Remember, it's all about getting them hooked!

McIntire Spotlight: Office Staff, Nurse & Custodians

From one end of the building to the other and all those in between~we wouldn't be able to do it without these amazing staff members. Thank you for all that you do to keep our building beautiful, our kids healthy and our school organized and running smoothly. We know that there are a million things that happen behind-the-scenes that we never see, and we are so grateful that you are there to support and take care of us!

5th Grade & Kindergarten Teams

Whether the students are coming to McIntire for the first time or leaving McIntire for the last time, the Kindergarten and 5th grade teams have their work cut out for them, and they do an amazing job. Their creativity and hard work are evident in all that they do. These gals are always willing to go above and beyond to do what's best for kids, and to keep them engaged and excited about learning!
