In Options STEM we spent some time understanding what our class name, "STEM" means (S-Science, T-Technology, E-Engineering, M-Math). We discussed what an Engineer's job description is and how they utilize the "Design Process" to solve problems. Through this week's activities, students will better understand the "Design process" and key "STEM" terminology that we will be using throughout the year. These activities also promote a safe and team oriented classroom while experiencing some great discussions and learning. We had a great first week of STEM!! I'm excited for what our students have to offer! ~Mrs. Jean Grochowski
In Options Social Studies our week went great! We did fun activities to get to know each other better and played some skill review games. ~ Ronda Crum
In Options Math class we worked on getting to know our friends and learning more about each other. We also played some math games and did a couple math activities! We had a lot of fun! ~ Mindy Binnie
In Options 3rd - 4th Reading and 3rd - 5th Language Arts, we spent time doing a variety of activities. From interviewing and introducing one another to journaling about the perfect day of school (some wrote about bringing pets to school or having classrooms turn into swimming pools or having the entire school made out of candy!) to playing Upset the Fruit Basket, the days were full and fun! ~ Mrs. Kris Stallings
In Options 1st Grade & 2nd Grade class we were getting to know one another and learning how to log into our computers. We explored our classroom library and were introduced to our writing center. ~ Mrs. Jen Lynch
In our Options 4K/5K classroom we spent a lot of time just learning how to “be” in the classroom. How to fold and unfold a rug, how to carry a tray, how and why we walk around our rugs and how to choose a work from the shelf and use it properly. We call the materials on our shelves “works” because play is the work of a child. We are just beginning to explore our geography and science shelves where we are exploring land and water forms, living vs non-living and space. It’s been a great week & we can’t wait for next week! ~ Mrs. Caty Loth and Mrs. Deb Dahl
