Learning Is Fun
Students in Mrs. Taylor’s class had an “Arizona Snowball Fight”. Students had to toss their yarn ball across the classroom to each other before the timer went off. Students worked together to count their “snowballs” in groups of 2’s, 5’s, 10’s. The group that had the least amount of snowballs won the fight.
Students in Mrs. Young’s Fifth Grade class, read in their Social Studies Weekly about the United States government. Students took their learning and made a poster of the different branches of government, roles of the government and rights for all people.
Mrs. Griffin's and Ms. Smith's Kindergarten classes had a great time learning that an ENGINEER is someone that solves problems by building things.
Today, their “problem” was to see how tall they could build a tower out of DOTS and toothpicks. Students worked for a little bit on their own. They discussed and observed what others had built, and then made adjustments.
