Maple Ridge 5th graders recently participated in a wax museum. Students researched and learned about a famous person and wrote a speech about them. They then came dressed as their person and presented their speeches to students and parents. It was very apparent that a lot of work and effort went into this day and we are proud of all our fifth graders and their teachers!
Mrs. Williams' first graders have spent the last few months reading their way through the book series Mercy Watson. Mercy is a “Porcine Wonder” who is adored by almost the entire neighborhood. She loves a good adventure and she especially loves hot, buttered toast. To celebrate finishing the series, their class had a Mercy Watson birthday party complete with none other than…buttered toast.
Ms. Harward's class recently had the opportunity to use Ozobots to help them review the multiplication skills that we learned earlier this year. Students were put into partnerships and had to solve various multiplication problems to code their Ozobots. They also got the chance to create their own problems as another way to do the codes. It was a blast!
Ms. Crandall's third grade class recently had a reading day celebration where they had a “book tasting” escape room. The students read books in 4 different genres, fiction, non-fiction, biography, and poetry and wrote menu reviews. Many of the students had not read biography or poetry books and had the chance to give them a try!
