Welcome to Center School!

We have the good fortune to be welcoming between 60-70 new students from Blueberry Hill School to our own Center School family.  Our fifth grade Center School Sightings team created this video and slideshow to show them what their new school is all about!  Enjoy!!

Third Grade Author's Tea!

Come meet the authors!  These amazing third graders made informational books including incredibly written chapters, table of contents, several text features, and glossaries.  A truly collaborative effort by the third grade teachers, students and their technology integration teacher.  The books were so impressive, parents were invited to attend an Author's Tea. Be sure to "click to read"a sample of these fantastic books!

Enjoy the pictures from the Tea at the bottom of this post!  Also,  Center School Sightings own Robbie H. was live on the scene to take in the action!  His video can be found under the pictures.  Awesome coverage!

Selfies with a Purpose!

First graders are learning about adjectives (can you believe it!).  After reviewing nouns and verbs we discussed what these fun descriptive words mean.   Using the Skitch app, students took selfies and wrote three adjectives about themselves either from a list we brainstormed or from their own ideas.

Amazing as usual first grade!!  The students will apply this lesson to create descriptive characters in their current writing.
