Fifth Grade Team Building Activity

Two fifth grade classes, Mr. Troy Harris and Mrs. Gina Brodie, worked together these past weeks to create an almost 5 feet puzzle. Each student was given a puzzle piece to design creatively. The students knew that it would create an inspirational message when completed, but they had no idea what it would possibly say. One by one, each student came and placed their puzzle piece. The end result was a bright and colorful message that read “We Are Creative Thinkers.” This message definitely characterizes the two classes and shows that working collaboratively can improve classroom community and be fun as well.

Third Grade Place Value Bootcamp

“Yes Drill Sergeant!” The 3rd Graders at New Garden participated in Place Value Bootcamp Day! Teacher drill sergeants came stomping into the classroom with camo gear and whistles ready to whip the Cadets’ place value skills into shape! Each Cadet received a number within 10,000 which they used for each drill. The drills consisted of building their number with base ten blocks and showing the standard, word, and expanded form of that number. The Cadets did jumping jacks, push-ups, and sit-ups for each digit in the ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands places. Everyone had a blast learning the Place Value Bootcamp Song as we marched around the classroom. The 3rd Grade Drill Sergeants are pleased to announce that all of their Cadets have graduated from Place Value Bootcamp! Way to go Cadets!
