gameclubI-LES has a new and exciting opportunity for students in grades 2 through 4!  Game Club meets once a week to play games such as Checkers, Mancala, Battleship, Connect Four, Parcheesi, Othello, and many more! Research shows that playing board games helps students improve mathematics and thinking skills.  Game Club is run by I-LES volunteer staff members with help from high school student volunteers. Check out these photos to see how Game Club members have lots of fun learning to play new games.

Within the word we find two dimensions, reflection and action, in such radical interaction that if one is sacrificed -- even in part -- the other immediately suffers” - Paulo Freire
Reflecting on learning is often an overlooked and undervalued skill. Through reflection, students can deepen their learning, make meaning out of content and self-evaluate on the learning process. This is a skill that teachers can help strengthen through modeling and by facilitating reflective moments in the day.

DIDestination Imagination is a challenge-based learning program that uses science, technology, the arts, math, engineering, and social learning; and pairs that with creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication skills. Inter-Lakes had 11 DI teams this year, seven of them at the elementary level.

grade4Spring is here!? As spring is arriving, fourth graders have begun to continue their unit on  Environments and are experimenting with plants.  Our center time is divided between the study of a plant’s range of tolerance and some history of New Hampshire. Four different plant seeds have been planted (indoors) and the students observe the range of tolerance plants have with environmental factors, such as water and salt.
