Second-Graders Get Acquainted

ME bags key to making new friends

The second-graders in Stella Guiry’s class at Stewart School got to know one another this September by bringing in a “ME BAG.”  Inside the bag were many treasures that helped the class and teacher learn more about the interests and hobbies of the students. Some children shared a favorite stuffed animal, a vacation souvenir or a piece out of a special collection. Many shared their family photographs. Guiry modeled this learning activity by sharing her own “ME BAG” the previous day. This activity proved to be an exciting one that enhanced the new second-graders’ oral skills and helped the children make new friends by finding similarities and differences in their classmates’ interests and hobbies.

Stratford Science Club Explores Alternate Energy

Thursday, 12 September 2013 00:00

Students in Stratford’s fourth- and fifth-grade science club worked together at their final club meeting to build wind turbines from kits. They explored the different ways that the blades could be constructed in order to be most effective, experimenting with materials such as corrugated plastic and balsa wood. After building the turbine, they tested different blade shapes to see which worked most effectively. The wind turbine project grew out of a workshop club advisor Erin Hegmann attended connecting Common Core Learning Standards to the Next Generation Science Standards (http://www.nextgenscience.org/next-generation-science-standards).

 

“The students were challenged by the project and truly enjoyed working together to explore alternate energy production and test their different blade designs,” explained Hegmann.
