We will focus on the following strategies:

  • Test Overview

  • Helping your child prepare
  • Maintaining Focus
  • Purging anxieties on paper
  • Relaxation exercises
  • Changing your child’s mindset and staying positive

Onomatopoeia! WOW!

Third grade students in Ms. Watkins’ classroom wrote comic strips that made use of onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is defined as a word, which imitates the natural sounds of a thing. It creates a sound effect that mimics the thing described, making the description more expressive and interesting. (Literary Devices)  Listen to a few of their comic strips.  They were recorded using the iPad app Shadow Puppet Edu.

Plants!

Students in Ms. Duckett’s first grade class have been learning all about plants!  They are becoming familiar with the parts of a plant, what a plant needs, and the life cycle of a plant.

The students created a MS PowerPoint presentation to share their learning.  The students used the shape tool to draw and label the plant parts. Take a look at a few examples.
