Classroom Peek Week of 9/24-9/28

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

In this issue:

  • Red Room created colorful dotted art pieces with paint sticks during center time.

  • Green Room used different types of apples to study metrics by creating an Apple Tree Chart. Each student tasted a slice of a red, a green, and yellow apple then metrics were polled on the chart based on which apple each student liked best.

  • Yellow Room began their Square One Art pieces, and used Fall leaf and critter cut outs to practice tracing shapes.

  • Kindergarten did a fun outdoor activity using graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows to make Solar S'mores. Each student wrapped their ingredients in foil, then set them in the sun to bake! In Art class, students began learning the basics in painting in anticipation of their Square One Art projects that they will begin crafting next week.

  • 1st Grade used concrete objects to practice their lessons, and make them tangible. In spelling, they used wooden alphabet pieces, and dice to assist with addition and subtraction problems in Match. 

  • 2nd Grade started their first "Friend of the Week" assignment and enjoyed learning all about their fellow classmate, Destiny, who shared her photo board with the class.

  • 3rd Grade worked on their interactive notebooks in Social Studies, and in Science they did a lesson on landforms on the Sun.

  • 5th Grade played an interactive game of Morning Yoga Flow charades to test their knowledge of different poses they learned about during a reading on Yoga in the library.

  • 6th Grade began their "I'm An Expert" group projects in Spanish class. Each group chose a country and studied the historical, political, geographical, economical, and cultural aspects of their country of choice.

  • 7th Grade enjoyed learning how to write in algebraic and geometric expressions in Math class, using the new whiteboard tables in their classroom. They also finished work on their Bridge Projects using popsicle sticks and Elmer's glue.
