Kids Court

We had a really nice visit to Kids Court. After being introduced to Judge Ryan Sullivan, the students completed a Readers Theater about BB Wolf. This was followed by an overview of the jail, the role of the bailiffs and the Ask an Inmate experience.

Thank you families for sharing additional photos from the day!

Ready for Spring Break 2023

We maximized our instructional time as we headed into Spring Break 2023. We got another visit from Mrs. Gillette, role played key events from the American Revolution, finished our latest Doodles project and completed our first assignments on Writable. We also acknowledged Pi Day and Reading Week, which was punctuated by reading with a flashlight.

A lot of Snow and a lot of Learning

We’ve been busy and got a lot done, despite all of the snow we have been contending with. We have worked through our core content areas, integrated art, and spent extra time on fluency through Reader’s Theater. We had a classroom auction, this time student-led, and opted into Nevada’s Reading Week. We even had a chance to visit with our kindergartners and show off our ability to read with prosody. (If you are unfamiliar with the term, the students can catch you up!)

Early November Learning

Following conferences, we continued our work with multi-digit division, culminating in learning how to divide decimal dividends with two-digit divisors. We worked through our study of air, completed the discussion strategy “Philosophical Chairs” and marched through a couple of hundred years of history with a look at early explorers. Given the delayed starts, the kids managed to cover a lot of content the last couple of weeks.

Oh, and we were filmed using the Visual Thinking Strategy (VTS).
