This has been such an exciting year for me, so far, and I hope for the kids as well. The Robot Rodeo at Discovery was a fun night and the kids did an amazing job on their obstacle courses. It was a wonderful finale for their hard work.
The 5th grade SAGEs at Discovery have now started Paper Towel Testing. We’ll see if they come up with the same evaluation of brands as the Sunny Hills SAGEs. They will be designing experiments to test the different attributes they thought were most important in purchasing a paper towel.
The 5th grade SAGEs at Sunny Hills have just begun their EV3 explorations. It’s great to see the enthusiasm they have for this project. They will be working on programming their robot using the computer and on designing a creative obstacle course to test it. We will plan to have our Robot Rodeo sometime the beginning of June.
3rd and 4th grade SAGEs are investigating polyhedra and building a colony of the future. They have been challenged to make a polyhedral building and living space that will use their entire budget. They have also designed a section of the colony to include the buildings and living spaces in a logical city plan.
1st and 2nd grade PEPs are working on challenging problem solving with a hands-on component. They have been learning the problem solving strategies and the Four Step Problem Solving Method. We have a new guest list in each class so we have mixed it up a bit.
I am excited to welcome my new PEPs from Kindergarten this week. We will be working on problem solving as well.
Thanks for your support!

The students in the SAGE program, along with their teachers, want to thank the IssaquahSchools Foundation for their donation of LEGO EV3 Robotics Kits. These kits allow all 5thgrade SAGE students to participate in this great STEM activity. ISF supports our studentswith contributions made to their organization by the Issaquah community. Find out how youcan be a part of this worthwhile endeavor at http://issaquahschoolsfoundation.org/.

SAGE students will attend class each week with their binder and all due assignments.
SAGE students will be collaborative, enthusiastic and persistent learners working toward their chosen individual goal.
