Sixth Graders Become Teachers

This week, in sixth grade math kids had a chance to become the teachers.  We are working on finding the area of 2-Dimensional shapes such as triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids and regular polygons.  Each group got one type of shape, became experts on finding the area of that shape and then presented it to the class.

Helping Out

One of the best things about ACS is that the big kids are always willing to help out the little kids.  Several times this week, the fifth graders joined the kindergarten and first graders for math class while their classmates were taking the science NECAP test.

Track Math

When the weather gets warm here at ACS, we take math class outside with track math.  Kids work on task cards set up in 4 locations around our dirt track.  They complete one task at each station before moving on to the next one.  It is a great way to practice important math concepts while getting some extra exercise and enjoying the sunshine!
