In PE today, first graders are learning how to dribble the basketball. They each have a cone that is their home base. They chose their own spot in the gym where they have enough space to be safe. The kids visit a neighbor and then circle their house three times while dribbling. Next, they visit someone across town and then circle their house three times while dribbling. Standing with the ball tucked under your arm demonstrates that you are done and ready for the next challenge. Practicing hand eye coordination, tracking the movements of the hands with the eyes, is important for reading, writing, various sports and so many activities. view image
Third graders work to dissect multi step word problems by underlining the known information, circling the question and then working with a partner to determine the answer. Students use math language as they work through the steps. Then, they come back together to check in and see if they are on track and what strategies could help them find the answer. Productive struggle is happening at LaPerche! view image
It’s Writer’s Workshop time in first grade! Students were writing their own adventure that included familiar characters, Frog and Toad. Their narrative writing needs to include a beginning, middle and end. Additionally, they have focus correction areas that remind them of the specific components they need to include. Today they needled to include when, how, where and what in their stories as well as have capitals, end marks and spaces between their words. LaPerche students are writers! view image
Kindergarten friends went on a hunt to find the letters hidden in their room and then practiced writing them. Such a great way to incorporate movement and learning. When you have practiced all of the letters, you can find a comfy spot to read. This gave Mrs. Caswell the opportunity to listen to each student read and have an individualized conference. Kindergarten rocks! view image
