Sixth Graders Learn about Greek

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on

Mrs. James's sixth-grade class did a social studies unit on ancient Greece. These last two weeks we were split into six different “city-states”.  The city-states were Athens, Sparta, Argos, Thebes, Corinth, and Delphi. All of the city-states would be given contests and tasks to compete for points. The table with the most points, in the end, would win.

Geometry in Fourth Grade

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on

As an extension to our beginning of the year geometry unit 4th graders were able to participate in a hands on exploration of triangles. Because these students have a basic understanding that triangles are shapes with 3 sides, they were then able to build upon that already formed knowledge. They discussed, observed, measured, and grouped triangles based on their characteristics. Within their partnerships students had fantastic discussions about side lengths as well as types angles within the shape.

Math in Kindergarten

Kindergarten is learning how to subtract with fun learning activities! Some of our favorite activities were pirate subtraction, ‘who took the cookie from the cookie jar?’, and speckled frogs! These activities give students a visual representation and are super fun!
