PE Using Online Health Quizes in Class

Our PE team at Teravista has been using online testing to assess content and concepts. They are utilizing this information to determine if students are understanding vocabulary and concepts. Awesome, Coach!

Third Grade Keeping Websites Up-To-Date for Communication

The 3rd Grade team has been updating their websites frequently to keep parents and students up to date. Several 3rd Grade teachers are using a Wiki for their class web pages.  This allows collaboration between teacher, student and parent.
Keep it up 3rd grade.  Lead the way in communication.

First Grade and Third Grade Teacher Team Up to Work on Poetry Project

First Grade Teacher, Miss Allen and Third Grade Teacher, Miss Hurst buddied up their student to work on creating a shape poem using Microsoft  Word. The students inserted clip art into a document. They practiced opening and closing documents, inserting clip art, dragging clipart to enlarge and printing published pieces.

Second Grade is Planning on a Wiki

Second grade has begun the process of using a Wiki for Planning.  This has given them flexibility in planning by allowing them a one stop location for uploading files and sharing outlines for lessons. This is collaboration at it's finest!  Way to work it out 2nd grade!!

First Graders Using Stemscopes

All First Graders have logged in successfully! Everyone is now accessing Stemscopes weekly to work on Science Vocabulary. The students are loving it and they are expanding their vocabulary!

Kinder is Rocking it!

Kindergarten teachers have their students logging in on their own! This is quit the accomplishment! They are learning mouse skills and reinforcing their learned letters by utilizing this week.

Some Kinder teachers have also utilized Google Docs to make parent conference signup a breeze for the parents. This allowed greater parent participation in a shorter amount of time.

Nice work Kindergarten!!
