3rd-5th GRADE CLASSES

Art

Students will complete art projects that transport them back in time to historical eras that align with their history unit. They will use creativity and imagination as they integrate art with learning in other subjects. Students will be encouraged to bring their work home to decorate their homes and lives outside of school.

 

Requirements:

  • Supplies will be provided.

Math

In the classroom, we will make math come alive! We will be playing math facts games and practicing applicable real-world math such as measurements, weights, shapes, time, number sequence, money, graphing, fractions, and more. On home days, students will use Teaching Textbooks for online lessons and problems. Teaching Textbooks has automated grading so a parent will just need to submit grades to the teacher.

Required Materials:

Music with Mrs. Bowker

Music is a chance for every student to shine! In this class students will learn to sing in rounds, play pitched and unpitched percussion instruments, and begin reading and writing in the languages of music. The semester will culminate in a public showcase for family and friends.

PE Games

In PE students will learn that exercise is, and should be, FUN! This class will be held outdoors whenever possible, in sun and snow. Students will learn how to play together and work on individual skills. Group games will be taught and laughter will be had during activities such as soccer, basketball, kickball, jump rope, four square, tag and many others.
