Community Helpers in Kindergarten

Mrs. Kilburn's kindergarten students are learning about community helpers this month in Social Studies!

 They read a series of nonfiction books about community helpers. They built their own town out of paper bags. They will be building their own 3D houses to add to the cityscape.

Students will be going on trips to the Fletcher Free :Library and the Fire Station to see how adults are helpers the community.

Printing Patterns in First Grade

Examples of fabrics from Uganda, Ghana, and India showed EES first graders how textile-makers use pattern in their work. The most fundamental feature of the patterns that students observed is that patterns repeat, which makes patterns very different from "designs" on clothing.

See student examples and read the complete post here on the EES art blog!

Building Gingerbread Houses in Kindergarten

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Kilburn's class built gingerbread houses!! 

Last week, in art class, students practiced identifying the parts of a building, and drew their homes. This helped them get ready for talking about the parts of the houses they would build with gingerbread and candies.

The houses were built around milk cartons to support the structure.

Thanks so much to the parent volunteers who helped make this possible.

Oh, what fun!

Pizza Math in Third Grade!

Third graders visited Folino's for a yummy lunch and some math work!

 Folino's Wood Fired Pizza (Burlington location) welcomed Mrs. Flaherty/Goldsmith and Mrs. FitzPatrick's third grade classes to their restaurant on Tuesday.

 The restaurant offers math centered field trips at their Burlington location and donates all money collected to schools in Uganda.

Students thoughts about the various ways in which a restaurant uses math every day and solved six problems that include some of this math.

All students were entered into a drawing for a $25 Folino's gift card. One lucky winner walked away with it!

Our classes want to thank Seth and the crew at Folino's for being such an active and welcoming part of our community
