Upper Elementary: Rewarding Week

 

This week the students completed their science fair display boards in class. They took pride in their design, layout, and choice of coordinating color schemes to produce a pleasing display. As some students finished their boards they became helpers and supporters to their classmates and worked as a team so that everyone was prepared for Thursday. After the morning presentations the students had a brief break and then returned to their work cycle. Choices included literature study, reading responses, and geometry. After lunch they enjoyed a Popsicle treat for all of the hard work over the past month. Our goal is to teach the students that the process is more important than the final product. Thanks for the home support throughout the science fair project! We concluded our week with a Disney Nature movie titled, “Penguins.” It was a beautiful movie centered around the life of penguins in the Antarctic.
