In 4th Grade, we are finishing our poetry book "Love That Dog" by Sharon Creech. 4th Graders practiced their reading fluency by reading a poem of their choice in Poetry Idol! Great work, 4th Grade!
3rd Graders learned how engineers use different kinds of tape for different projects. Then they used painter's tape to create tape designs on canvas.
During social studies, 8th graders had the opportunity to "tour" the country during the Great Depression to see the effects this economic downturn had on ordinary American citizens. The students made creative and informational scrapbooks to document their experience. Their scrapbooks were great reminders of the difficulties American citizens faced after the stock market crash of 1929. Great job, 8th graders!
Second graders have been working hard learning about strategies to add double digit numbers. They did a write-the-room activity where they had to find and solve all of the addition facts in the room and in the hallway!
