Unfair Taxes

Submitted by susan.bird on Mon, 10/15/2018 - 13:49

In fifth grade, we have been learning about the causes of the American Revolution.  In Miss Bird’s class, we have had an economy from the beginning of school where the kids have been earning tigers for their weekly pay and doing good work.  The past couple of weeks, we have started having taxes and the students are beginning to hate this time. The taxes increase in frequency until they finally just get angry and “rebel” like the colonist did.  These taxes are unfair like wearing jeans, blonde hair, having a sister. We also had some fees like a chair fee.

Mrs. Smith's Class does Division

Submitted by susan.bird on Fri, 10/12/2018 - 11:41

Today we had a table contest to practice our division algorithm. The blue table was able to consistently compute the correct answers the fastest with single digit divisors. Next we will try bigger dividends!

The Big Bad Wolf Strikes Again!

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 10/11/2018 - 11:31

What a fun day in first grade! We participated in a STEM project where we had to build houses for the 3 little pigs. All we could use were dots and toothpicks to make our houses. Once our houses were built the Big Bad Wolf tried to blow them down! Some of our houses fell down the first time, but after we improved them they all stayed up! We had so much fun planning, building, experimenting, improving, and presenting our plans. The pigs are safe from the Big Bad Wolf now!

Oh the Tying We Will Do!

Our fifth grade classes headed down to the Kindergarten hall with teaching in mind. Each fifth grader assisted one Kindergarten student in learning and practicing the Art of tying shoes. The Kindergarten students had a splendid time learning from their older peers and were eager to show them they were up to the task. The fifth grade students jumped in with both feet and began the tying show down. What a wonderful way to learn and grow together.

Three Little Pigs STEM Project

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 10/10/2018 - 08:10

This week we did a STEM activity in the first grade. After reading "The Three Little Pigs" we built homes for our piglets using only "dot" candy and toothpicks. We then tested them against the huff and puff of the wolf! (blow dryer). First, they made a plan of how to build, then we tested and went back to the drawing board to make our designs even stronger. Finally, we built once more! ALL their houses withstood the blow dryer by the end! Woo hoo!

Art with Mrs. Palmer

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 10/09/2018 - 15:19

Mrs. Ramos' is class is learning about comparing and contrasting with our reading.  So, Mrs. Palmer (our GAINS visual art specialist) taught us how to compare and contrast warm and cool colors.   The students had a great time, and their own art really helped solidify the concept.
