CURRICULUM

ATTENTION PARENTS OF JUNIORS
ASVAB RESULTS

Mrs. Jefson went over the ASVAB reports with the Juniors. Please ask your student about available information on the ASVAB website. The students received a copy of their scores and a booklet.

GEOGRAPHY AND MATH INCORPORATED IN GRADE FIVE SPANISH

Mrs. Aikman’s fifth grade Spanish class is reading a Spanish novel, Las Aventuras de Isabela / Isabela’s Adventures.  The main character, Isabela, traveled to Mexico where she visited a market and ate mango with chili powder and lime.  Mrs. Aikman brought in mangos, flavored with chili and lime, so the students could have the same cultural experience as Isabela. While some did not care for the flavor, the majority of the class enjoyed the spicy, sweet treat. The students created a graph comparing the students who liked the mango with chili and lime and those who did not care for the taste of Isabela’s special flavored mango.  

Most impressive, the lesson was taught in 90% Spanish!
