FitStep pro trackerThird through Sixth grade learners have gotten comfortable with using the FitStep Pro trackers during class and docking them at the end of class. These trackers keep a record of the learners steps, activity time and moderate-vigorous activity (MVPA) time during each class. This information is then transferred to a computer program where the PE teachers can see this information for each learner and averages for the whole class. An important number we look at once the statistics are uploaded, is the ratio between activity time and MVPA time. We are looking for learners to not just be active in class, but to push themselves to do a little more, go a little faster or put in a little more effort and energy. The learners enjoy this feedback and accountability.

students with their inventionsIn the tech lab this year learners have been enjoying Makerspace activities. A makerspace is a place where learners can access various tools to explore and use creativity to build. Each month, classroom teachers have the option to bring classes or send small groups to the lab to build and explore using different technologies. Every month has a different theme that allows learners to explore  different materials and tools. The theme for September was engineering a tool to help someone with technology.

We have had a fine time in World Cultures, exploring the elements of culture and what they look like right here in New Hampshire. Our learners know that our “culture” includes our home, family, food, clothing, language, religion, celebrations, traditions, music, arts, pastimes and so much more! We now have a strong base of knowledge to take with us as we explore the rest of the world.

The next few weeks will be a closer look at our world through maps, atlases and other fun resources. As we study some of our favorite places, we want to get a good sense of where they are and how that has influenced their culture. Then we can really start to get to know them! Look out World, here we come!!

The Interact Club is putting on its annual sock collection drive “Socktober” for the entire month of October. I-LES has partnered with the  Interact Club to help with their collection. We would be grateful if you were able to send in any new unused socks with your child to help with their collection. A bin will be in the office to collect the socks. At the end of the month all socks will be donated to local homeless shelters. The Interact Club and I-LES thank you for your support with this cause!

First Grader with a butterflyOur 1st grade learners have been doing a great job adjusting to our schedule and routines.  We have been working to build our community by establishing class rules and expectations.  We have spent time sharing, playing games and learning how to take care of materials and each other. 

Jake from Prescott Farms has been coming into our classrooms to talk to the students about the importance of composting and recycling. The children have been working on number concepts to 50 and beginning reading skills. We will be starting our ‘Choice Boards’ for Home Learning soon so be looking for it in your child’s folder.

Reminder – School pictures will be on Wednesday, October 9th.
