Classroom Peek Week of 2/18-2/22

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.
