Goal Getters

Each week, Wildlight Elementary School's news crew spins the wheel during the morning announcements to determine which classes will earn a chance to "punch a prize" for meeting their computer-based goals in iReady, Lexia, AR, and IXL. This week, they had four winners, one student from each class! When the student wins, the teacher also wins. The prizes range from $5 gift cards to candy and toys. Congratulations!

Exploring Habitats

Ms. Olman's second-grade class at Hilliard Elementary School became true explorers this week. With their group, students put on their hats and explored the different habitats they've been reading about these past few weeks. Using pictures and passages, they discussed and recorded different facts with describing words to help them extend their learning. It was so fun to watch them work together and fully engage in the unit!

Reading Restaurant

To make the most of the half-day, Mrs. Fleming at Yulee Primary School transformed her room into a Reading Restaurant! The tables were set with table cloths, and each student was able to decorate a plate with their favorite book character. The students moved around the room to different stations to "taste" different genres of books! While at their stations, they were also able to munch on different snacks. At the end of their tastings, they completed a reading "menu" where they wrote about their favorite fiction and nonfiction books that they had read that day.

Little Warriors Big Numbers

Students in Mrs. Wheeler’s class at Callahan Elementary School practiced grouping tens sticks into hundreds during math. They had to sort through the different bags of tens sticks and group the tens into hundreds. Once students bundled their tens sticks into hundreds, they then had to show how many tens there were, how many hundreds they could make, and the number value of the bundled tens.

Sweet Science

Mrs. Baker's class at Yulee Middle School learned about solubility by burning sugar. Students learned the sugar is the solUte because YOU add the sugar, and water is the solvent.

Starbooks Cafe β˜•

Students in Mrs. Crowder's third-grade class at Yulee Primary School enjoyed β€œcoffee” and donuts. They listened to books using the classroom tablets. Students looked at books that were wrapped so they couldn’t see the cover of the books. They investigated the books to decide if they were fiction or nonfiction. The students read several books during the day.
