Classroom Peek Week of 10/29-11/2

Take a peek inside to see what vibrant lessons were happening inside TCS classrooms this week!

In this issue:

  • Green Room got into the Halloween spirit by studying the sensory characteristics of a pumpkin before carving it.

  • Kindergarten was all about shapes this week, as they took turns in their different groups using shape cut outs, colors, and bingo games to test their knowledge.

  • 1st Grade enjoyed some time outside with a game of Spelling Hopscotch to help students identify their latest spelling words.

  • 2nd Grade decorated treat bags and used paint and other materials to decorate pumpkins in anticipation of Halloween.

  • 4th Grade began creating art components to an ongoing creative writing assignment. Each student has been testing their knowledge of nouns and adjectives to create a real estate ad to sell their own haunted house.

  • 5th Grade made their own skull art pieces adorned with colorful paper and designs during a Social Studies lesson about Dia de los Muertos.

  • MS Art completed the Dias de la Muertos banner this week and hung it up on the wall beside Rita’s office. This was a collaboration between the art class, who created their skeleton paintings, and the elementary students who adorned the banner with marigold paintings. 

  • MS English worked mechanics by writing descriptive paragraphs using sensory details to describe an item they own.
