Third Grade Enrichment with a robot!

Third graders enjoyed researching a person and creating a timeline unusual enough for their DASH robot to maneuver around. Students had to measure and code their robot to move and say exactly what they wanted it to!

Letterland Word Sorting

First Graders use The Letterland Word Sorting App to sort spelling patterns. They worked collaboratively to determined which words go under each pattern.

From Sea to Shining Sea~Read Across America

From Sea to Shining Sea".... Read Across America kicked off with a Quillbert traveling around HGES classrooms reading books written by American authors. The teachers did an amazing job of decorating their doors, reading to classes, and having their students dress up as book characters. Way to go Ms. Echols and Mrs. McGannon for organizing.

Kindergartners are 100 days smarter!

To celebrate 100 days of kindergarten, we got to do some fun 100 themed centers.
We tried to stack 100 pennies (which is harder than it sounds), play ten frame bowling, estimate and count, create a picture with a one and two zeros, make something with 100 blocks, and write what we would eat 100 of.




























We also wrote about what we think we will be like when we're 100 years old. :)




100 Days in Kindergarten

We celebrated 100 days of learning in Kindergarten back in February. We had a lot of fun activities including dressing like we were 100 years old, writing 100 words, and working in a variety of math stations. We have been learning about the 4 C's and when to use them, and the students had a great time Critically Thinking, Collaborating, Communicating, and using Creativity!
