    Writing in 4th Grade

    Mrs. Brown’s students recently completed an enrichment writing activity. All students drew a card and wrote a story from the characters point of view that was listed. Some were trees, dogs, coaches, and even baseball players. It was a great way to put their knowledge gained this week to use and be creative pulling their own background knowledge into their stories. #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

    Kindergarten Word Building

    Small groups are such an important part of the day for students in K-2. This group of Kindergarteners was working hard on building and reading nonsense words during their warmup drills. Small groups help to focus on specific needs of students to give them what they need to become stronger readers. #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

  •  Micro teaching

    Micro-Teaching Learning for Teachers

    Members of our Guiding Coalition were asked to step out of the comfort zones by filming themselves teaching. This is one of John Hattie's strategies called Micro-teaching. The idea behind Micro-teaching is much like viewing game film: you're learning and reflecting on the live action to make improvements and/or learn from it. Teams K-5 watched videos and had such rich discussions about the lessons they analyzed. Every teacher walked away learning something new or had a strategy in mind they wanted to implement into their own classrooms. We are so proud of the vulnerability our teachers displayed today because our kids will benefit from today's learning. Our teachers truly StandOUT with strong hearts and strong minds!!!! #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

  • Common/Proper Noun

    Common and Proper Noun Matching

    Mrs. Beck's 1st grade students had a little snowball fight to practice common and proper nouns. Each student was given a noun, threw it onto the carpet and picked a new noun. Once they had their new noun, they had to determine if it was a common or proper noun, then go find the matching noun. #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

  •  Community Helpers Field Trip

    Community Helpers Field Trip

    Our kindergarten students have been learning a lot about community helpers during their latest unit of study. They've learned who community helpers are and what they do within the community. As a way to get a little extra hands-on learning, they took a field trip to our local fire station and First Service Bank. This is always an exciting learning experience for our youngest students. #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

    Literature Circles in 2nd Grade

    Mrs. Lane's students were using reciprocal teaching during small groups and literature circles today. Each student had a role within the group and they worked together to complete comprehension questions based on their novel. They did so well with their new roles!! Continue to StandOUT 2nd grade! #SESSTandOUT #GreenbrierProud

  •  vocabulary

    Graffiti Wall in 5th Grade

    Mrs. Crass had her students create a graffiti wall as an instructional strategy during their literacy block. They chose a vocabulary word based on their novel and made the graffiti based on its meaning!! This allowed students to be creative and take ownership in their learning, all of which impacts student growth!! #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

    Reciprocal Teaching in 4th Grade

    Mrs. Brown and Ms. Uyeda modeled to students how reciprocal teaching works during their literacy block. Reciprocal teaching is an instructional strategy where students have their own roles in the learning and discussion. This is one of many strategies on our Model of Instruction that is used here at SES! #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

  •  Singing at the Capitol

    Singing at the Capitol

    Mr. Legris and our very own Springhill Sounds recently took a trip to the Capitol to perform a few Christmas songs. After the Capitol, they went caroling around to a few local nursing homes to spread some Christmas cheer. We love this tradition our choir gets to take part in every year. #SESStandOUT #GreenbrierProud
