My Students

Our adventure awaits us as we dive into science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and reading (STREAM) lessons, projects and activities in Recognizing Individual Student Excellence (RISE) class. Advanced students in grades 3, 4, and 5 meet three times a week for 40 minutes in our new library for RISE class. These advanced students have a weekly opportunity to engage in hands-on activities to share their learning in a collaborative setting.

Through RISE class innovation can be explored and admired.

We are always looking for new ways to infuse "coding"; or programing games, websites, and animation using the internet in RISE class. To "code," we sign on to the website Code.org and with this website my RISE students create birthday cards and use java script to make boxes. The learning possibilities are endless with a little bit of imagination and creativity.

My Project

The Makeblock mBot entry-level educational robot kit for ages 8+ would be the perfect addition to our repertoire of challenges. Students will build together and utilize the robot to complete tasks. These students will learn the character traits of perseverance with the opportunity to create, adjust and start again.

Through collaboration and shared success, students will engage in the

fun of learning. Students can compare the Ozobot to the create your own mBot experience in order to gain an appreciation for the toys and technologies in our lives.

We are preparing students for the careers of the future.

Thank you for your support!
