First graders at WDE had the chance to create their very own timeline as a way of looking back at their personal history. Timelines provide a visual tool for studying a brief period of time - a day, a year, or an individual's life. Researching and creating timelines appeals to students' visual and mathematic  intelligences. This fun-filled activity was a unique way to look back on fond memories and share those memories with others!

In seventh grade math at WMS, Mrs. Kari Ann Kinkey employs a variety of differentiation strategies to ensure ALL students learn.  In a recent lesson, student Nayeli Salgado explained how she solved a problem in both Spanish and English for the benefit of the English language learners in the class.  Students also worked collaboratively, using algebra tile manipulatives, to solve algebraic expressions.  Mrs. Kinkey continually seeks out new methods to ensure math makes sense for  her students.

In Mrs. Wilson's Art class, middle school students have been studying and familiarizing themselves with the elements of art. The students' artwork conveying these important elements are now being displayed in the main hallway.  Submitted by Kalli McMillan

Mrs. Daniel’s fourth grade students at WDE observed the parts of a flower by dissecting tiger lilies. First, they separated the sepal to discover the protection it provides for the stamen and pistil. Then, they extracted pollen on their fingers from the stamen supporting the concept of pollination. Finally, they located the pistil of the flower in order to understand fertilization.

Paxton's 7th and 8th grade technology students have been learning a lot about coding so far this year. In their class, where they are in the ICT Essentials program, students are learning how to edit existing algorithms and create their own. To put the concept into a new perspective for the students, Miss McMillan's class completed an activity in which they used block segments to create their own small obstacle course for their lego figure to go through. The students had to write out an algorithm that others could easily follow in order to complete the obstacle course. They students did an excellent job with this activity and were very creative in the process. Way to be EPIC, Bobcats!
