1st-3rd Grade - Gifts

The 1st-3rd grade ALPHA students have been working on Gifts.  Gifts, a book in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 1–3, gives students the opportunity to discover extrinsic and intrinsic gifts available to them in their everyday lives.  Sentimental, personal, historical, symbolic, endangered, and fragile gifts are explored. Students also learn the concept of supply and demand when assessing value or worth.  Students are also learning about the process and science of the preservation of national treasures from Egyptian pharaohs to poor farmers.

4th and 5th Grade - Questions

The 4th and 5th grade ALPHA classes are working on the topic of Questions.  Questions, a book in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 4–6, asks students challenging questions that will change the way they look at their world.   Students will learn about Socrates and his ideas about questioning and will examine the Five W's as they gather information to put together a school newspaper. Students will also examine a new type of comedy as they are challenged to create humorous scenes by only asking questions. These activities will help students gain an understanding about how our society has evolved due to people who were bold enough to ask questions.  This curriculum unit makes use of the following great children's literature books: 

Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo;

Fountains of Life: The Story of Deep-Sea Vents by Elizabeth Tayntor Gowell;
