Kindergarten has had a busy month. We’ve been learning all about living and nonliving things with a focus on animals and their characteristics. We studied owls and ended our unit with a visit from the Carolina Raptor Center. They brought 4 different raptors, 2 which were owls. The students loved seeing the different raptors, especially the owls.
Recently, fifth graders at Sun Valley Elementary studied Systems of the Body and Genetics using the flipped learning model. Using this model, students were immersed in completing background information outside of the classroom prior to the lesson, so students could spend instructional time immersed in the topic doing hands on activities. Over the course of 15 lessons, students used a variety of digital and print resources, podcasts, videos and games to research and study systems of the body and genetics.
Sun Valley Elementary School is building its legacy and has turned its focus on Boosterthon for help. This year the school is raising money for its book room, which will empower teachers with resources to improve literacy. The central focus of this year’s Boosterthon character program was “Backyard Box Office.” Principal Susan Rodgers said, “Our Awesome Boosterthon Team is adding to our legacy by building up our staff with positive notes! It is a great day in the Valley!”
