Our kinder cuties explored snow today and discussed what they notice/wonder. One asked, “why is the snow still white even though the sun isn’t shining on it?” (They previously learned snow is clear.) 💚 this problem based learning experience and our teachers for trying something new!

Our day started with lots of work as readers and writers. 3rd grade researching countries, 2nd graders using non fiction text features, and kindergarten readers’ workshop!

Kicking off passion projects for 2020 in 4th grade! All students are channeling passion focused on a historic event or person. Love this amazing start!

Kindergarten got right to work writing today! They will be ready for 1st grade before we know it!

5th graders find main idea using different strategies and reflect on what works for them as readers.

What better way to celebrate coming together to meet a goal for Kindness than Fort Reading! 🙌🏻 Ms. Q’s 4th graders were giddy with delight in their cozy spaces. 📚📖📚

2nd graders are getting ready for their human body unit! 🤣 We had lots of fun tracing today!

Learning about Simple machines is so much more fun and engaging when the Dupage Children’s Museum comes to us!! 3rd grade kicks off their unit with some really cool authentic exploration!

Welcome to 2020. People in education get two opportunities to celebrate the “New Year,” so why not take advantage of it?!

Just prior to the break, District 205 learned that the Illinois Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development has recognized the District as the state’s Exemplary District for Whole Child education for providing Healthy, Safe, Engaged, Supported and Challenged learning environments for students.
