TEACHING AND LEARNING HIGHLIGHTS AT ACESE
Mrs. Pereira’s Class
Our class has been working on learning the history of the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. They have created their own designs and made Native American beads to make necklaces and are in the process of working on their dioramas depicting information they have learned. They will share their completed work with the school for them to view. :)
Mrs. Sutherland’s Class
Many of our students are currently participating in the worldwide, month-long novel-writing competition called NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and is a contest against oneself to write a first draft of an original novel. Students have been assigned a word count goal that they are attempting to reach within the writing period, which runs every day from November 1 - 30. The goal is for each student to have a complete first draft of an original fictional story which they then may choose to revise and publish through the generosity of the sponsors of the Youth Program of NaNoWriMo. Our students are writing alongside students from all 50 states and around the world (as well as tens of thousands of adults in the adult NaNoWriMo program), generating millions of ideas and brilliant creativity! Armed with their traditional NaNoWriMo customized Viking helmets, idea-producing snacks, fancy pens, and other writing swag, our students are blazing trails through space, cowboy ranches,, superhero stomping grounds, and other exciting and mysterious locales!
