3rd Grade Shares a Glimpse of their Summer

3FO wrote about our summer plans. We celebrated spirit day with a picture of our writing while wearing our sunglasses. 

4th Grade Roller Coasters

The fourth grade roller coasters are complete and they look fabulous.  Each homeroom competed against each other for the longest marble ride and the best themed roller coaster.  The themes the homerooms chose this year were:  Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Rain Forest, Ocean, and the Solar System.  All the homerooms did an excellent job creating their roller coaster around their theme.  The teachers voted and 4-B won for the best theme which was the Rain Forest.  4-Se won for the longest marble ride which was 16.12 seconds.  Way to go 4th Graders!!

3rd Graders Build and Code a Weather Station

In STEAM class, 3rd graders built and coded a weather station to detect temperature, humidity and dew point. It is able to hold 10 days of weather data. They also learned about circuits and connecting wires.

2nd Graders Code a Plant Monitor System

2nd graders built and coded a plant monitor system to detect moisture level of the soil and sunlight. Students coded 5 pictures using the binary system to have their monitor display pictures to let them know if their plant needs water or sunlight. Students learned about circuit boards, connected wires, and tested their system to set moisture and light levels.  

6th Grade Abilities Day

On May 26th, the 6th graders were able to learn about differently abled persons.  The event was Abilities Awareness Day, hosted by the South East Association of Special Parks and Recreation (SEASPAR).  Students were able to learn about physical, cognitive, visual, and deaf and/or hard of hearing.  Students were able to learn through various activities how we are more alike than we are different.  Abilities Day was a great morning of learning and gaining understanding of others!

Roller Coaster Time

The fourth graders are hard at work constructing their marble roller coaster in science.  They are using their knowledge of force and motion to create the longest marble ride.  

4th Grade Revolutionary War Guest Speaker

Fourth grade students have been working hard in reading to compare and contrast the British and colonists' perspectives during the Revolutionary War.  Coming all the way from the 1700s, Major General William Howe shared a "firsthand" account of his life during the American Revolution.  Students loved it!  

Poetry Fun in 3rd Grade!

The 3rd Grade students had lots of fun using their creative minds to write all sorts of poetry.  Some of the examples of the poetry they learned were: haiku, concrete, acrostic, alliteration, onomatopoeia, cinquain, and color! Below are a couple exmples of their work!

Color: Pink

Pink twirls with ballarinas round and round

Pink tip taps with shoes on the ground

Pink gets chewed up with bubble gum and goes pop! pop! pop!

Pink gets blown up with party balloons

Pink is the color of life

Acrostic: Sports

Playing to win

On a field, court, rink

Running a lot

Trying your hardest

So competitive
