50 Days & Hopping
In celebration of the 50th day of school, Carver kindergarten students dressed in clothing styles similar to those students wore in the early 1950's. They learned to collaborate working on activities that compared clothing, cars and music from the past. At the kindergarten sock-hop, students enjoyed running, twisting and shouting. In math class, students counted to fifty by ones and sorted objects into five groups of ten. They also created bar graphs based on whether or not they liked the taste of root beer floats.
Students in fourth grade science class were excited to test how far their propeller driven vehicles would travel. Each student had to assemble their vehicle based on a technical design. The goal was to determine the amount of energy needed to send the car more than 15 feet.
The life cycle of a butterfly is part of a science unit that Carver second grade students enjoy learning about. The unit includes each child having his/her own caterpillar to observe as it goes through the process of metamorphosis.
YEAR IS IT?
Students from Mrs. Fitting's room enjoy
reading the morning announcements.
is hard to believe that the start of this school year marks
the 8th Anniversary for Carver Elementary! What is even more
AMAZING is that this years high school seniors, were
members of Carver's first 5th grade graduating class. One
memory these students are sure to recall is the first time
that they were chosen to read the daily announcements "live"
through video stream. This 5th grade tradition continues today,
along with students reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and
the Carver Character Counts pledge. Our morning reporters
end every announcement with some great advice for all of us...."Make
it a great day or not, the choice is yours!"
day of kindergarten!
brand new markers work great!
