Mrs. Taylor’s class did subtraction bowling. Each student got to have a turn bowling. All the other students wrote down the subtraction problems to represent the students number of pins that were knocked over and how many were still standing. They had so much fun doing their subtraction!!
Today, our fifth graders had a fun party. This month students have been earning their way to a rootbeer float and dance party reward. Each student had to show good behavior and be an active learner throughout the month. We had a great time dancing! We are thankful for the amazing fifth grade students that we have at Park!
The Park Faculty enjoyed a fun opening social last week with some delicious nachos and an intense Cornhole tournament! It was great to fit in a little fun after school one day after all this great learning and teaching we've been doing! What an impACTful group of individuals!
For her monthly grade level lessons, our school counselor Mrs. J taught about why it's important to identify emotions in yourself and others. We talked about how emotions are like a traffic signal: they give us really important information that can keep us safe. Students learned that there is no such thing as a bad emotion. But also, if you ignore or try to push away those uncomfortable emotions, emotional eruptions or explosions can happen. Just like shaking up a can of soda, the pressure mounts and one little thing can make you "pop your top".
5th graders had a lot of fun learning about the Intolerable Acts in social studies through a role play activity. Some of it was fun, but at the end of the day when the Redcoats came and took their chairs to teach them how the colonists had the responsibility to house or give them quarters, some students didn’t like getting their chairs taken away!
