Take a peek inside to see what vibrant lessons were happening inside of TCS classrooms this week!
In this issue:
All grades got to experience learning outside of the traditional classroom during a neighborhood-wide power outage. It was great to see teachers and students alike being creative with their outdoor studies: Kindergarten students crafted their own fashion designs out of craft paper and held a fashion show for Holly; 1st Grade played character building games; 2/3 Combo studied paragraph structures on a visual T-Chart during a Writing lesson on the Dream Court; and Middle School students continued their History lesson on Queen Hatshepsut and Ancient Egypt.
Preschool students spent their week using fluorescent paints, sparkly night sky accents, and other materials to transform their classrooms into colorful night scenes in preparation for their Night School event.
4th Grade enlisted the help of iPads to enjoy viewing centers about many historical African-American figures during a Black History Month lesson. Students also did work on their zentangle projects.
5th graders created Paper Minecraft board games and grid maps with different types of obstacles for their specialized avatars to navigate in Tech Class. A portal at the end of the maps allowed players to transport to the game boards of fellow students!
6th Grade served as the audience for the 8th Grade History class's Black History Month presentations. Students prepared thoughtful interactive reports on their historical African-American figure of choice and presented their research orally with the use of mixed-media components.
Students were hard at work during their Elective classes, be it getting their hands dirty in the garden planters or using colored construction paper to make mindful art.
