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.

Harlem Renaissance

Fifth graders at NPES celebrated their four week study of the “Harlem Renaissance” with poetry, art, music, and food this week in the Learning Commons.  The students enjoyed red beans & rice, cornbread, and lemonade while viewing their artwork from the unit study and listening to their classmates’ readings of their Harlem Renaissance poetry or non-fiction writing. Ms. Davis and Ms. Toole are their Social Studies teachers.

3D Shapes!

Kindergarten students in Ms. Derrick’s classroom enjoyed creating 3D Shape Posters today!  They used the iPad app PicKids to take pictures of 3D objects such as cubes, spheres, cylinders, cones and rectangular prisms. The students labeled the shape using the text feature in PicKids.  Take a look at their 3D Shape Posters!
