Over the last six weeks, fifth grade students have been learning the fifty states, capitals, and abbreviations. As a culminating activity, students in each class competed against one another on an interactive game. The goal was to see who could identify all fifty states with the most accuracy in the least amount of time. The winners from each classroom then competed against one another. The overall winner, Gretchen Mundy, correctly identified all 50 states in 62 seconds! Brayden White was the runner up. Nice job, fifth graders!

The Hour of Code is a global movement that introduces students to computer science and show that anyone can learn the basics of coding. Mrs. Milliern's and Mrs. DeMoss's classes particpated in activiities celebrating the Hour of Code this past week. Led by Garrison DeMoss, a Five-Star programmer, and Megan Abbott, a former RBB teacher who now teaches in the IU Kelly School of Business, the students were introduced to the basic idea of computer languages through a simulation game. The students used coding language to tell a "robot" to move cups around to achieve specific configuartions of the cups. After this hands-on simulation, the students then logged onto the code.org website to practice the newly acquired coding skills!

HArmony 3 Access for Parents and Sudents

Announcing the new Harmony 3 Family Access for Parents and Students!

We are switching our current Harmony Parent/Student portal to the New Harmony 3 Family Access and all parents should have received an email with the link to log in, as well as instructions for the setup. Everyone needs to register with the new credentials, as we will eventually be turning off the current version of the program.

One of the advantages of the new Harmony 3 Family Access is that it allows parents and students to have separate accounts with their own user names and passwords to access information as well as set notifications. Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.

In the new program you will be able add all your students into one login and to see the following:

Progress Reports

Attendance

Discipline

Homework Agenda

Online Payments

Push Notification

The new site link is:

https://harmony.rbbcsc.k12.in.us/familyaccess.nsf/hello.xsp

The link is also posted on the corporation as well as each building website.

We hope you enjoy the features of the new site.

EIS Third Grade Classes

image
The 3rd graade classes have been working on addition and subtraction the last couple of weeks. While doing this, they have learned how to calculate the perimeter of shapes. Mr Hornick's class decided to figure out the perimeter of the school hallway. They did this using a measuring wheel that was graciously loaned to them by a parent of a student. The goal was to figure out the number of trips it would take to get a mile. Can you believe 6 to 7 laps around EIS is a mile?

EIS Fifth Grade Activities

image
Fifth grade students have started the school year off learning to work cooperatively. They have begun a large unit in social studies covering Native American groups across America. A great way to get students talking, practicing vocabulary, and reading information is to buddy them up with a classmate. In reading, we have been working on text structures. Students have been working in small groups to find clues in their passages to determine which text structure the author was using. By learning how to discuss their subject information and how to work together as a team, students are making connections to the materials they are learning . What a wonderful start to the year!
