Kelly Lane students participated in a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) day on Thursday. Students were given 10 index cards and 10 inches of masking tape. The challenge was to create the tallest structure that stood on its own. Students used engineering, creativity and problem solving skills to create these masterpieces.
Fact Fluency is more than just speed. It is also the ability to think flexibly and efficiently. Students play math games to increase fact fluency.
Students utilize evidence based behavioral supports to help them succeed in the classroom. We use visual schedules to communicate the sequence of upcoming activities, visual timers to signal when an activity is ending, and token boards to help teach, maintain, and generalize student behaviors.
