Classroom Peek Week of 12/10-12/14

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

In this issue:

  • Yellow Room mixed flour, salt, and water to make dough for homemade Christmas ornaments, then baked them in the oven before decorating them with paints and glitter.

  • Kindergarten used oversized wooden domino blocks to play a fun matching game during a hands on Math lesson. Students also practiced sentence writing while writing in their journals.

  • 1st Grade brushed up on their knowledge of "Sh-" words by playing a game of digraph bingo.

  • 2/3 Combo students paired up with their 5th Grade buddies to create Christmas and holiday themed pictures.

  • 3/4 Combo students used their bodies to create a trust project during a STEM lesson. Each student positioned themselves in chairs with their heads on another's knees in a square and little by little the chairs were slowly taken away, leaving students no option but to hold each other up. The class succeeded after 5 tries!

  • 5th Grade students split into groups to create colonial settlement brochure that had to include pertinent items like the history, economy, geography, religion, and culture/family to catch the eye of settlers during the American Colonial period in Social Studies.

  • 7th Grade continued their study on human anatomy by learning about the specifics of the heart in Life Science.
