For the third year in a row, second graders in Mrs. Powell’s and Mrs. Allen’s classrooms at Tennerton School celebrated the fall season with a literacy project. Students were challenged to transform ordinary pumpkins into main characters of their selected books. This project entailed reading a book of choice, analyzing character traits, summarizing the story, drafting a blueprint, and then creating the final product to share with the entire school population.
This annual tradition is something that the younger students look forward to and it is enjoyed by all.
A reminder that students should not be dropped off at the cafeteria after 8:00 am. Any drop-offs after 8:00 am should be at the front office and all students should be escorted inside by an adult and signed in. Thank you.
Mrs. Anderson's fifth grade students participated in Global Math Week from October 10-17, 2017. The theme for this year was Exploding Dots, where students explore different bases in "machines" and solve problems visually. Students watched a series of videos by James Tanton and solved related problems using his Exploding Dots technique.
