Parent Survey for Culture of Enrichment
Follow this link to submit your responses to the Parent Survey this Spring. The survey will take only a few minutes of your time, but will provide us good feedback of our effectiveness so far. Thanks for your time. ( Responses will be collected until May 30th)
Opinion Writing-Feedback Groups
We are finishing up our unit of study on opinion writing. This week, students worked on giving feedback to other writers. Now, all writers are busy revising their writing in preparation for publishing.
Creepy Crawly Villages in Math
In math, we are working with larger numbers. This week, small groups were challenged to create a "Creepy Crawly Village" with at least 15 different critters (insects and arachnids) and exactly 1000 legs. We are still working!
We had another successful Edcamp Kids! The students are becoming confident presenters and they are creating visuals that help their audiences learn. We had lots of great topics to teach and learn about this week!
