During the year, the students will be working on many higher-level problem-solving activities. In all three grade levels, my job is to both support and push students beyond the curriculum and standards being covered in the regular classroom. Each week, I will visit each classroom, and my hope is to inspire and engage every student in a variety of challenges and activities that will help to exercise their brains.
In addition, I will be working outside the classroom with small groups of students in the subjects of Math and reading/ELA. These groups of students will be selected through a multi-step process, and my task will be to provide an environment where those students with some common academic strengths can be pushed to apply their skills in new and exciting ways.
Here are the newest photos of some of our latest units and activities in Grades 3-5. In Grade 3, you will see the students working as young engineers to design and build their own paper tables. In the Grade 5 photos, you will see the students working collaboratively to plan, design, and create their own community/town maps. As always, these projects require a great deal of higher level thinking, problem-solving, and excellent collaboration skills. These are the kinds of 21st-century skills that our children need to be prepared for our ever-changing world.
