Fifth Grade Leadership Notebooks

All fifth graders have been working on Leadership Notebooks. We have finished a very large chunk of work in them. If you don’t know what leadership notebooks are, they are notebooks you keep all your work and victories in. These notebooks connect to the Leader in Me program, which is a program to help you become a better citizen. In these notebooks, you track how well you’re doing and set goals for yourself. Imagine if you received a low grade and you want to set a goal, just take out a piece of paper, and write! These notebooks are helping kids learn lessons and learn how to set goals for themselves. In this notebook, you will learn about the Seven Habits of Happy Kids.

First Graders - Forces in Motion

 First graders enjoyed a presentation on Forces and Motion by Discovery Place employee and ITES parent, Mr. Samson. Did you know you could lift a student’s body weight with just one pinky? It’s possible! The students’ eyes were stuck to Mr. Samson as he demonstrated how an electromagnet works! These engaging experiments were a perfect companion to the lessons and projects already presented by the classroom teachers. The students expressed their continued interest as they asked many questions and posed a few “what if’s” at the end of the presentation. A special thanks to Mr. Samson for donating his time and expertise and for making this such a memorable event for our first graders! His presentation definitely heightened our students’ excitement for our upcoming field trip to the Charlotte Motor Speedway to further explore forces and motion!
