Fourth grade students buddied up with our kindergarteners to study the properties of rocks! Students measured, weighed, scratched, floated and drew different aspects of their rocks. This is a great way for students to collaborate with each other because both grade levels study rock properties as part of their core. Many students discovered their rocks could float, had rough texture and were all different shapes and sizes! Way to go kindergarteners for using the scientific method!!!
Students may have gotten out of school early on Monday, but teachers used this opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of professional development. Teachers spent time collaborating on a variety of topics including Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions, Trustland Fund budget ideas, guided math program development, standards based report cards as well as analyzing math, language arts and Dibels testing data to adjust instruction. This was a much needed time for teachers to sit down with one another and begin planning and implementing great ideas into the classrooms at Taylor!
Our kick off to College Month was a success!!!!! Thank you to all of the families that came out to support our Family Literacy Night! We hope you learned some fun literacy tools, ate some yummy food and enjoyed being entertained by The Green Man Group! We're excited to spend the next month "Reaching For our Potential" while setting goals for the future!!
Thank you Clint Pulver and Kenton Nielson for sharing your group! Lets "lean on one another, build each other up and make our dreams becomereality!"
