    Math Small Groups in 5th Grade

    We share a lot about small groups happening in K-2 but did you know small groups happen in 3-5 also? Mrs. Sutterfield is working with a group to review word problems using the KWS strategy. This is a tool students can use independently to solve word problems. Our teachers use small groups to differentiate based on specific student needs. This is just one way we work hard to ensure ALL students are learning. #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

    Wizard of Oz Hook

    THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!!!!! Our first grade teachers dressed like characters from the Wizard of Oz to hook students for their upcoming novel! Students went through rotations to learn about each of the main characters and vocabulary related to each the characters. Teachers even acted out the traits that described each character. Everyone enjoyed this little bit of excitement so very much! #SESstandOUT #GreenbrierProud

    Mrs. Street posed a question for her 3rd grade engineers…Can your home withstand the flood? Students have budgeted and planned a home to build that would hopefully last in a flood. They learned about structures and were able to build their own home! Hands-on learning was in full force today!!! They were so proud of their products.

    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 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

    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

    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
