A Game with A Twist

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

4th Graders have been practicing parts of speech by playing a fun new twist on the game Spoons! They pass around cards trying to find a match of words that either sound the same but are spelled differently, or are spelled the same and have multiple meanings. Combining learning and fun has been a big hit in all of the classes!

100 Days of Kinder

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

Kindergarten celebrated 100 days!
Ever thought about what you will be doing when YOU are 100? Well, these kids sure have. In kinder, before we have learned all the phonetic rules, we work on writing the sounds we hear. Which makes for the most FANTASTIC writing pieces.

Teacher Fun Friday

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

Our teachers had a Fun Friday after school last week. Teachers found themselves not only immersed in a world of colors and creativity but also elevating each other through shared inspiration. They were able to blend their diverse perspectives and talents with each stroke on the canvas. Through this experience, teachers uplifted one another, creating not just beautiful paintings, but also a sense of camaraderie that extends beyond painting, enriching their professional relationships and contributing to a vibrant and supportive educational community.

Number Orders in First Grade

Submitted by megan.oropeza on

This week, we have been learning about putting numbers in order from least to greatest or greatest to least. Our class worked together in groups to figure out how to look at how many tens and ones each number has. This cute group found a fun way to show how their numbers could go in order from least to greatest. They were so proud of their work!
