The third graders are using their creativity and math skills to remodel our 2nd-3rd grade reading room! After doing some need-finding by interviewing 2nd graders and measuring the room, they learned how to use Google SketchUp to create their initial designs. SketchUp is a 3D modeling software that is easy to learn and incredibly fun to use! We also spent some time researching how to make functional furniture and storage for small spaces (think Tiny House designs), while ensuring the room environment is conducive for learning and reflecting. The students will continue to fine-tune their designs next week, and hopefully we will land on our final design and the makeover magic begins! Enjoy the photo from our measurement “practice” session!
4th grade has been working on learning meters, rhythms, the grand staff, and the note names of the lines and spaces. They’ve been doing so well that they earned a Quaver day – where they can use our amazing online curriculum to reinforce their knowledge through fun music theory learning applications.
We are also preparing for our Veteran’s Day assembly that will take place on Thursday, November 10th at 8:30am. Please make plans now to join us for this very special assembly. Ask your students about “American Tears” – they’re working hard to memorize this wonderful song honoring our veterans.
