Below are a few pictures from my walk through. In Mrs. Agati's music classroom, I saw students singing and reading sheet music off their iPads. Mrs. Fitzpatrick's fifth grade classroom was organizing decimals from least to greatest. This hands on instruction utilized student's higher order thinking skills such as classification and categorization. Ms. Hayes' fourth graders were doing research on areas of the country that combined the social studies curriculum and math Common Core standards.
It is wonderful to see students learning and having fun at the same time. I greatly enjoyed coming back today to this incredible warm and caring learning community.
