Adventures of a Bahrville Student

Mrs. Bahr's Target Blog

First Grade STEM Activity

October13

What does the Arrow, Dart, Stealth, Moth, and Ring all have in common? They are all different types of paper airplanes, whose structure effects flight. The students first had to research inquiry questions involving paper airplanes, then they had to us eth technology to guide them through the construction of each plane. My visual learners learned rather quickly to READ the details on the left side of the screen otherwise their planes did not look like they should have. Amelia Earhart would have been proud of us if she was in our classroom!

Shark Tank (Bahrville Style)

October13

As we are approaching our design portion for InVenture, the students had a “taste” of what it may be like presenting their invention with a well rehearsed pitch. This was a mock trail for presenting their SCAMPERED ice cream cone to a panel of Addison’s four sharks. It was an EXCELLENT learning experience!

Pablo Picasso STEM Sculptures

October5

It was an engineering day in Bahrville as my geniuses designed and constructed a Pablo Picasso Sculpture. They had a budget of $20 and had to construct a sculpture standing 18 inches high, 4 inches wide, and have at least three 3D objects presented. It was not an easy task, though they shined with their teamwork and originality.

STEM with Paper Planes

September15

Have you ever wondered…

How far can a paper airplane fly?

Are paper airplanes just for fun?

Can you make your own paper airplane?

We will be using this Wonderopolis website to help us develop a better understanding of paper airplanes and their flights.

Roll a Picasso!

August23

We are highlighting our DIVERGENT thinking and creating a masterpiece just like Pablo Picasso! Using the attached picture, students will draw the Picasso they roll! There are only 5 rolls, but a lot of fluency and flexibility with the placement of each facial item. Be sure to use vibrant colors for the blue period has ended- “Whew!”

Amelia Earhart

August3

We will be flying high with Amelia Earhart!

Our adventures will address:

Who was Amelia Earhart?

What lessons can we learn from Amelia Earhart to help us persevere and take risks?

Why is Amelia Earhart so unforgettable?

 I’m excited to be taking this adventure with your kiddo!

Just a little bit about Bahrville…I will be emailing a daily Gifted Gator Snippet filled with our day’s activities. The Gifted standards will be next to the activities we accomplished. We do have homework in AL, and this is written at the bottom of the Gator Snippet. I thoroughly explain the homework to my students in class, although if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.  Completed homework should be returned the following Monday. Please be sure to sign the Healthy Habits sheet each Monday. This is where I will share with you your child’s behavior choices throughout the day. I always provide several reminders, though a  “smiley face” is the end goal! Your child will receive a Progress Report at the end of each semester (end of December & end of May). The best way to contact me is via email at Sherreen.bahr@cobbk12.org.

What is CUBISM?

July27

Welcome to Cubism, a problem based learning unit designed to support the gifted resource standards for the Cobb County School District second grade gifted classroom.  We will learn HOW cubism influenced the 20th century, and WHO Pablo Picasso is. This unit includes Cognitive lessons about art (mosaics) and art history (Cubism), math-based lessons about perimeter and area, and our great affective lessons.  To add a little “spice” to our learning… We will be applying problem solving skills to the actual Rubik cube. Yes, that’s right! We have a cube for each genius to explore and discover ways to solve one complete color side at a time.
