As we enter the last 5 weeks of classes, the Kinder PEPs are working on math using More To Math kits from LEGO. These activities are very challenging, but engaging. They reinforce logic and flexible thinking as well as concrete multiplication, division and symmetry. I get a lot of exercise during these activities as the students need support understanding what they are asked to do, but they do a great job of solving these problems.
The First Grade PEPs are working on a density unit. They are discovering the densities of liquids through some wonderful experiments. The Second Grade PEPs are doing a series of engineering and scientific inquiry activities, one of which involves jumping monsters. They'll be levitating ping pong balls and making musical straws.
The Third Grade SAGEs at Challenger are involved in a very intricate challenge of building a gliding bridge. We've done some study of the bridges and now they will be presenting their model and bid sheet for consideration. At Sunny Hills, the SAGEs are working on WeDo machines and will be making original creations and programming in the next few weeks.
Fourth and Fifth Grade SAGEs at Challenger are building Marble Skater Parks using physics to determine how to successfully get a marble to complete the maze. At Sunny Hills, the fourth and fifth graders are programming robots to complete the obstacle course they have created. The Robot Rodeo will be held on June 9th in the Sunny Hills conference room from 6:30 to 7:15.
Lots of learning and lots of fun still to be had!

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.
