Lost Lake Elementary School joined educators from around the world to “Rock Your School” event last Thursday, Sept. 20.
Get Your Teach On aims to increase student engagement by helping educators develop innovative ways of delivering content in a balance of fun and academic rigor.
On Thursday, schools showcased creativity in their classrooms.
At Lost Lake Elementary School, activities included:
- Students in one class worked together through Multiplication Madness in hopes of winning the trophy.
- Another class explored vocabulary with Fancy Nancy’s fancy words.
- Maps, text structure, and the main idea came to life for students through the eyes of jungle safari guides in yet another class.
- Others learned about force and motion through a Science Exploration Speedway.
“Rock Your School is all about celebrating the art of teaching and the magic of student engagement,’’ said Kelly Cousineau, principal at Lost Lake Elementary. “On our campus, this event has been 100% teacher driven. The participating teachers decided the lessons to be delivered and the organization of the schedule. In fact, some are transforming their classrooms.
One teacher is transforming her room into an operating room, where students will become doctors and ‘dissect’ texts to determine text structure! We love our students, and I am proud we are providing innovative opportunities for them to learn.”
