Christmas with the Chipmunks

All of the songs in our Christmas Choir Concert this year were based on arrangements from the chipmunks.  We all enjoyed the twists on familiar tunes and silly speaking parts in between. The kids worked hard preparing and did a great job!  The audience even got to sing along on Deck the Halls and they turned out to be pretty great singers too. Special shoutout to all the amazing students who took on singing solos and speaking parts!

Active Learning

Every term, Mrs. Beckert brings the students together for an active learning assembly.  Last term, the students learned about determination and being self-aware. This term the students are learning and practicing asking questions and wondering.  Mrs. Beckert talked about what asking questions and wondering does for us. There are three things: deepening understanding, increasing our ability to solve problems and to create meaning.  She taught the students that when they come to a problem they need to see, think and wonder. Then they can make an inference or find a solution to their problem. We encourage our students to be active learning and when they see, think and wonder it will increase ability to solve problems.  Thanks, Mrs. Beckert, for helping us become better learners.

Last week was Computer Science Education Week and our class had the opportunity to participate in Hour of Code.  In the pictures above students were doing Hour of Code on the iPads. This is a great tool to help students understand the basics of coding while having a fun time doing it.

Double Digit Multiplication

Mrs. Andrews’ class learns about multiplying 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. We had to work together at our tables to have enough base-ten blocks. When we traded 10 tens for 1 hundred block it was a lot easier. We could see how place value effected our problem solving.
