During a recent Project Lead the Way lesson, the second graders in Mrs. Rasmussen’s class at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School participated in a problem-solving hands-on activity to “save the ice pop.” They had to problem solve a way to save their ice pops before they melted. The students learned about insulators and conductors during the unit focusing on states of matter.

Native American Day

Fourth graders at Mt. Pleasant recently spent the day engaged in hands-on learning activities thanks to a program from Journeys into American Indian Territories. The program coincides with the students’ fourth grade social studies curriculum. Check out some of the pics from the day:

Mt. Pleasant’s “Random Act of Kindness Wall” is ready for the picking. Teachers will discuss with their class different ways to spread kindness in the school, with their family, friends and even animals. Students are excited to pick a few acts of kindness for their class to spread and share.

VIP Lunch

Third graders invited VIPs into the classroom for lunch. These special guests were presented with written projects made just for them, and they played games that celebrated bonds with special people in their lives.

Feeling Like Coding

Students in Mrs. Smerechniak’s class at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School read the story “Today I Feel Silly” by Jamie Lee Curtis to Mrs. Chester's second grade class. The students shared their feelings with the class. As an added activity, the students correlated their feelings with ozobot movements through coding. For example, if they were feeling excited the ozobot could be coded with the “turbo boost” code.

Award-winning children’s book author Brian Heinz visited with third graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School on Jan. 14. Mr. Heinz spoke to students about the book writing and publishing process by using reenactments of his real-life experiences. Students learned the methods he uses when researching possible book topics and the importance of using the five senses to develop and incorporate descriptive language in writing. During his in-class workshops, Mr. Heinz used a “road map”-style mural board and dozens of visual aids to teach students how a book becomes reality from raw ideas to a finished product.
