March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday! Many of our elementary students celebrated him throughout the week! As one of their Dr. Seuss activities, Mrs. Werner's kindergarten class read the book, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. After reading the story, they used colored goldfish crackers to sort and graph.

The STEM class at Northwood is learning all about sound. Mrs. Hoeing took that opportunity to read Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who to them using a new app called Novel Effect. This app uses voice recognition to add sound effects and character voices when paired with popular children's books. The students listened intently so they wouldn't miss a sound!

Mrs. Bailey's Spanish III class used the activity To the wall to creatively finish sentence prompts based on what they see in the pictures.  Timed conjugation games always require a great deal of concentration.

In Spanish 1, Mr. DeWitt's class has been studying a Unit with Family Vocabulary.  Kids have done a project where they built out a three generation family tree with descriptions of each member (age, characteristic, and comparison).  On this particular day, they all were assigned familial roles within the "Simpsons Family". They had to ask questions in the target language and organize themselves as the family tree!
