Third graders in Ms. Beard’s class at Tackan Elementary School are learning how to create simple machines during a hands-on Project Lead the Way lesson on Jan. 7. Using Vex kits and working in small groups, the students are working on a unit on stability and motion.

Just prior to the winter holiday break, the second graders at Tackan Elementary School participated in hands-on activities during their winter work centers. Rotating through the four different classrooms, the students participated in making different art projects, such as a penguin made out of hearts, a snow globe, fingerprint snowmen and gingerbread men using glyphs to decode the different parts of the body. Along with the art projects, the second graders wrote about the wintertime and what it means to them.

The second graders at Tackan Elementary School are using all five of their senses during a recent writing assignment. Writing about winter, the students were asked to use all five of their senses when describing the season and what it means to them during a poetry lesson. They brainstormed different ideas of how winter makes them feel, how it smells, the different touches and sounds, and how it tastes. Their final drafts were mounted to a cup of hot cocoa brimming with cotton ball marshmallows.

First graders in Kathleen Ierano’s class at Tackan Elementary School are practicing “trick” words using Play-Doh. Trick words are the words that do not follow the “rules” of the English language so they need to be memorized. Play-Doh isn’t just for fun; it’s also great tool to use for strengthening fine-motor skills.
