Check and Mate! Nathan Bingham, son of Michael and Gina Bingham, a fifth grader in Mrs. Sleight's Sage Creek fifth grade class took 6th place in the state chess tournament this past week. Alan Bird, Sydney, Adam, Rebecca and Samual Gee, and Taylor Shaw also competed from Sage Creek. There were approximately one hundred contestants in Nathan's age division and he out-maneuvered each of his opponents to place in the top six. Nathan Bingham: no chess "rookie"! Congratulations Nate!
Fourth graders from Mrs. Robbins' class at Sage Creek Elementary celebrated Dr. Suess Day by reading the Suess story “ Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” They were amazed that the King thought that he could actually change the weather . They decided to make their own oobleck. Once they had seen the chemical change, and experimented with the oobleck, they concluded that oobleck was: sticky, messy, disgusting, amazing and….. FUN!!!!
Frog jumping races were the item of the day in Mrs. Robbins fourth grade class this week. Incorporating art and science into their math lesson, students folded their own frogs, then took turns jumping and measuring how far they could jump. In small groups they worked together to fin\d the average jumping distance then graphed their findings. Measurement is an important part of the fourth grade math core. Who knew paper frogs could be teachers too!
