Our 2nd grade team put together a GREAT parent meeting! The students in Ms. Ford’s and Mrs. Hachem’s classes came together to teach their families about Math Workshop.
Students played games that reinforced many concepts including addition, time, money and measuring.
From the looks of it–fun was had by all!
Thank you Mrs. Hachem & Ms. Ford!

Our students play a very important role in their learning. Students in Mrs. Hachem’s second grade class teach their peers during Number Talks. This student is sharing her thinking with her classmates. She explains her strategy and shows them the steps she took to solve the problem!

We are very fortunate to have added a preschool class to our building! Mrs. Roe, the preschool teacher and Mrs. Ibrahim, her teaching assistant have a classroom of 16 students.
Today, they paired up with their 4th and 5th grade buddies from Mrs. Wagner’s classroom. They shared books with their preschools friends and even helped them with an art project!
