The Middleton S. Elliott Elementary School students and staff kicked off the Second Quarter Celebration of Learning by first honoring those students who reached their goals for the at-home reading incentive “Readers Are Leaders” awards. Afterwards parents visited the classrooms as the students showcased their English Language Arts or Math work stations. In the kindergarten classes parents were engaged along with their children in writing stations, word study stations, and digital learning stations. In first and second grade, students shared with parents their collaborative digital programs, their personalized Think Central site, and other computer resources the students and teachers are using in Math and English Language Arts. In addition, students shared with parents their newest reading materials by modeling strategies they are learning. Across all grade levels, parents were able to see how the College and Career Readiness Standards are embedded in the students’ work stations and that engaged student learning involves many formats including using digital tools.
