Candy Grams! Candy Grams!

Part of the GRE vision encompasses educating and developing the whole child. This week, third graders were involved in a learning activity that does just that. Students have been selling candy grams, which is a lollipop attached to a kind note sent to other students around the building. By selling the candy grams, the class raised over $700 and will be used to purchase items to donate to the homeless. However, the real purpose was to provide a practical, real-world experience to learn math, reading, and social studies. In math, the students practiced multiplication and division to divide sort and group the lollipops. When making advertising flyers, students studied non-fiction text features that contained effective methods of communicating a message. In social studies, students learned about assembly lines and goods and services.

 
Please Complete our Communication Survey

With the help of a group of parent representatives, Glacier Ridge is analyzing the format and effectiveness of communication provided to families. The information and communication flow from the school and teachers is essential for a positive partnership between school and home. Therefore, our goal is to be effective and efficient in our communication.

Please take a moment to complete a brief survey around your school and teacher communication preferences. The school will use the information to refine our communication practices. Thank you in advance for your time.

First Grade Asks Questions about States of Matter First Grade Asks Questions about States of Matter

First grade students explored states of matter with an experiment that required them to use different methods to melt butter, ice, and chocolate. The hands-on activity allowed them to see and experience the change of matter and start to ask questions about the why it occurs. Asking questions is part of our 6 Habits of Thinkers. Providing experiences that spark questions from students is a method to involve students in their own learning.
