PRE-K FRANKENSCIENCE FRIDAY
September 11, 2020
Our preschool classes learned about buoyancy and absorbency through a science lesson using dry erase markers on a glass plate! After drawing pictures on the plate with the dry erase markers we poured water on the plate. The strong buoyancy force overcomes the stickiness of the ink, this causes the image drawn to float magically in the water.
WIG...Wildly Important Goal
Kindergarten thru Eighth Grade
Malden Grade School has been fortunate enough to receive a LEAD grant. This grant focuses on changing teacher behavior for the betterment of the students. A committee of teachers and staff has been formed, and through several planning meetings we have come up with our first WIG (Wildly Important Goal).
Our WIG statement is:
Teacher planning and prep: To alter teacher behaviors to improve student confidence in and out of the classroom
The staff as a whole has been working to improve student confidence. We believe that being confident will help the students not only academically but also in all aspects of their life now and into the future.
