In our class, students will have a chance to select a daily ESTEEM time activity to work on when they have completed classwork. These activities are:
Ethics Reading: Students select upper grade picture books that present some type of ethical question. Two students sit together and take turns practicing reading out loud and then discuss the ethical question.
Science Reading: Students select a book of their choice that focuses on a scientific topic and practices sustained reading in order to build stamina.
Technology: We are fortunate to have laptop computers available and students who select technology will be able to use them to practice keyboarding skills.
Engineering design: When a student choose to practice engineering, they will select one of our class engineering task bags that has everything they need to practice the engineering design cycle.
Entrepreneurship Journals: In these shared journals, students have the opportunity to write and share ideas for starting new businesses and solving entrepreneurship problems.
Math Tiles: We have a collection of Marcy Cook tiles that allow students combine their math skills with their problem solving skills using fun math tiles.
