Fourth grade recently wrapped up their "Footprint on Florida" unit guided by the question: How have different industries impacted Florida’s growth? Fourth graders created videos, scavenger hunts, board games, children’s books, newscasts, interviews, puppet shows, dioramas and more to express what they learned about the impact that development had on Florida's landscape.
There are many good math programs and they all come with different strengths. Some are more workbook heavy and others allow for more hands-on, differentiated learning. The one program that resonated with every teacher on our committee from kindergarten to fifth grade, and the one we thought was the best for our school, was Bridges in Mathematics.
