Room 21 at Rose Drive Elementary School has been a beehive of excitement and activity this past week, as Preppy K students showed their appreciation for the new additions to their classroom. Mrs. Helm put her teacher grant money to good use, adding everything from building materials to flash cards, all to complement the many educational activities in which students participate during their daily center time. Prepping these young minds for the future takes creativity, planning and lots of hands-on materials. Rose Drive’s Preppy K students are using 21st century skills through the daily practice of collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking during center rotations, which include reading, building, sorting and problem solving. Their energy and curiosity serves as a daily inspiration!
