“All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten”
Our classes read excerpts from the book
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
by Robert Fulghum. The students then compared the information, read with the knowledge that they have learned this year, and realized they learned a lot of meaningful lessons in Kindergarten.
Animal Research Projects
Students in each class chose a different animal to investigate. They gathered information from a variety of sources including books, magazines, and online resources. Next, they organized their information to create reports about appearance, habitat, diet, predators, and fun facts. In addition, students made diagrams and food chains depicting their chosen animals. This comprehensive project allowed first graders to develop their skills in science, reading, writing, and technology usage, while they became experts in their fields of study.

Math Sculpture Project
Each face of the prism must be decorated to represent attributes that represent who you are and what is important in your life. Each face of the rectangular prism represents one of the six important events.
When everyone brought their decorated rectangular prism into class, 5 huge sculptures were created. Each of these are how our fifth graders are unique and different from each other and we discovered that we are more alike than we thought! As a class, we will calculate the total volume of the overall sculptures.
