What?  Personalized Unit:  This means students have choice of what they want to research as well as how they want to share their learning.

When?  Short, 2 week unit

How?  Students picked a health-related topic of their choice, researched, and this week will create something of their choice to share their learning and inspire others at EPiC. They will present to 1st grade students soon.  1st graders are in the midst of their health unit as well.

Note:  Creations will be uploaded to their blogs and that information will be shared in next week’s blog update!

Math Facts:  Reflex

12/50 passed

Each Monday on your child’s Math Menu you can see your child’s Reflex percentage and growth from the previous week.  It is our hope that your child would be close to 65-75% at this time to help enable them to reach 100% by the end of June.
