Polar Express Learning

The first graders at Glade Elementary took a train trip around the school.  After reading The Polar Express, the students participated in various learning centers.   They enjoyed fun activities that included reading Christmas poems, counting syllables with a bell, and making Christmas crafts.  The Polar Express unit ended with the students watching the movie while they wore their pajamas and drank hot chocolate.


The Magic of Teaching

Mrs. Christl Touchstone, Early Childhood Special Educator at Glade Elementary, offered her students a month long adventure with a thematic unit entitled:  Fairytales (Tea Parties, Castles, and Magical Magic).  The outside of the classroom was wrapped in a castle wall and adorned with rose bushes, Lemon Cypress trees, European Cypress trees, and Norfolk Pine trees.  As the children stepped inside, balloons of silver (magic) and purple (loyalty) hung from the ceiling and tablecloths decorated the tables.  Each week of the month offered multi-sensory experiences, language/reading/math centers, art/science exploration activities, and creative snacks - based upon the weekly theme within the scope of the unit.  The children created everything from glittered hand print canvas arts, fairies in a jar, sandpaper castles, and magical carpets.  What a great time had at Glade!!!
