We have had such fun in our learning this past week at Northpoint. These engaging experiences help make school meaningful to our children!
In kindergarten, students celebrated the 100th day of school by dressing up to reflect being 100 years old, and they did some math work around the concept of 100. A number of our kindergarten friends participated in a Metaverse augmented reality experience with a partner, answering questions about our C.A.R.E.S. values and what it means to be a good friend.
In first grade, our students are making the most of learning spaces around the school, utilizing their classroom, pod and the library to complete partner and small group work. They enjoyed flexible seating options throughout the building.
In third grade, classrooms worked on cooperation posters to help remind us of the value of working together. In math, students applied the skills they have learned reading a ruler in math. To put it to the true test, they needed to catch different Pokémon characters hiding around Northpoint, by correctly reading their height using centimeters or inches!
In fourth grade, our students shared the floats that they completed to demonstrate their learning around each of the 50 states. I so enjoyed the creativity that was put into each model of the individual states! These types of learning experiences provide deep learning, capture our students’ interest and draw them into active, meaningful work around the curriculum.
