Recently our 3rd and 4th grade students shared the results of their budget math assignments. In this assignment, students chose a destination of their choice, a place somewhere around the world to which they hope to travel. Once the trip location was chosen, students researched activities and sight-seeing opportunities available for their destination. From this list, students determined the estimated costs associated with each activity and found colorful photos of each to show in their Powerpoint slides. Along with price information, students also calculated the entire trip’s lodging, food, and transportation costs and tallied these in a table at the end [...]

May is test month at ECS, as each grade takes their annual standardized achievement tests. With that in mind, we thought it would be a good time to talk about how to prepare for a test. The jury is still out among scientists on exactly how and why we forget certain pieces of information. However, it seems that, aside from injury or illness, the brain doesn’t necessarily “lose” information. Rather, it is a matter of it being stored correctly and/or fully committing the information to memory in the first place. If we can change the way we approach information, then we [...]
The phrase “Math is useful for everyday life.” is often repeated to students throughout the course of their education. However, demonstrating that fact in a creative way, so as to engage students, can be a trickier task. Angela Morse, our middle school math instructor, is constantly looking for imaginative ways to do just that. Her middle school students often talk about how she helps math “make sense”, so I visited her classroom to get an inside look at how she does it! Read on to see some of the projects they have done. • Geometry: The Pythagorean Spiral Students learned about [...]
The other day I had the opportunity to visit Mrs. Turella's classroom to ask the students a few questions about the fifth grade. They had some great answers and were so full of joy. Here is what they had to say! ---------- ME: “Ok, guys…what do you love most about the fifth grade?” STUDENTS: “We get to go on awesome field trips! This year we went to IFly and did “Mission to Mars” at the Museum [of Flight]!” “That was fun!” “Yeah and it’s fun going with a smaller class, because we get to do more things.” “Science is really cool.

Written by Dalia Ibrahim - Middle School Science, Pre-Algebra and DEEP Instructor What is DEEP? Depending on the age of your child, the answer to this question will vary throughout the years they attend ECS. To a kindergartner, it is a fun time once a month where the older kids play games with them that are based off the monthly chapel theme. For an upper elementary student, it is a time where they get to join a small group and discuss the chapel message again while having fun. By middle school, the definition of DEEP takes on a whole new meaning. [...]
