    Early Learning Community

    Snowy Owlets

    Snowy Owls sang the ABC song. They read stories about weather and stories about babies. While playing games such as hide and seek, they learned about object permanence. They also demonstrated their knowledge of patterns, and they practiced their balancing skills. 


    Bay Owls

    Bay Owls focused on an Easter theme. They read stories and discussed colors. They read the poem, “Trucks On The Move,” and they made observations about trucks. With gardening materials and tools, they watered plants and learned how to plant seeds.



    Barn Owls

    Barn Owls enjoyed themes about flowers and bees. They practiced counting to ten both forwards and backwards. They reviewed colors and found objects and toys to practice matching items with colors. Students took nature walks to observe the bunnies and chickens, and they practiced jumping and counting aloud with each hop.


    Preschool Community


    Tawny Owls

    In math, Tawny Owls learned about “big idea” number concepts and operations. They discussed symmetry and non-symmetry. Using cutouts of whale tails, they practiced numbers. Students made observations about seasons and weather. They also had fun with opposites.


    Spotted Owls

    Spotted Owls focused on the letter N. They also demonstrated their understanding of addition and subtraction using a concrete set of objects. Using Play-Doh and craft sticks, they constructed free-standing fall trees, and they discussed how a single acorn becomes a tree. They also discussed the different types of foods that trees provide. They explored how birds nest and lay eggs, and they created sculptures of animals that live in trees.


    Elementary Community



    Students selected two topics such as mammals, birds, and invertebrate to read about throughout the week as nonfiction texts. Then in writing, they described the connections between the two animals. Using a cereal like Fruit Loops, Trix, or Lucky Charms, students learned to categorize objects. They also practiced recording data and representing that data on a bar graph.


    First Grade

    First graders summarized and read texts using key details. In math, they began a new unit about measurement and time. They also discussed telling time using both an analog and digital clock. In science and writing, they practiced writing expository pieces about frogs. They learned to highlight facts and used information to write a frog report.


    Lower Elementary

    Lower elementary students practiced writing opinion pieces using topics such as, “Is spring the best season?” In science, they learned about force and motion. They discussed gravity as well as magnetic force.


    Upper Elementary

    Students converted among different-sized standard measurement units. For example, they practiced converting kilometers to miles or hours to seconds. They used these conversions to solve multi-step, real world problems.
    Students also engaged effectively in a range of collaborative discussions. They practiced communicating one-on-one and in groups. They learned to build on others’ ideas and practiced how to express their own ideas clearly.
