Mock Debate in 5th Grade

On Wednesday, February 24, the students in Mrs. McIlvain’s class held a mock debate. After reading a Scholastic New article about Tyler Armstrong, a 12 year-old who wants to climb Mt. Everest, students had strong opinions about whether or not this was a wise idea. The students formed 2 teams, argued their points and countered the points of their opponents. The winner was The Opposition Team! All in all, students showed off their logical reasoning and argumentative skills in our heated debate.

PreK Visits the Zoo!

Rooms 101, 103 and 104 went to The Brookfield Zoo on February 29, 2016. The weather was unseasonably warm. We attended the dolphin show and two of our students were picked to be helpers. While we weren’t able to see the entire zoo, we were able to see many awesome animals. Our favorites included the tigers, kangaroos, penguins and camels. Room 101 will write our first class book about the zoo as our final activity.
