TCAP Pep-rally

BIG shout-out to Ms. Harper for getting the fifth grade students ready with their cheers!


After the cheerleading, was the rap! Our students are so talented!

When the rap was over, it was time to test our students' knowledge and see....

Are You Smarter Than a Clifton Hills Teacher?
 Click on the link above to download it yourself! There are questions from each grade, 3-5, and one challenge question. The underlined words are hyperlinked. (you click on them)

Everyone had a great time playing! We had a 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher up against a 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade student. They were technically on teams- the teacher couldn't challenge the student from the same grade. 
We took turns- a teacher would challenge a student, then the student would challenge a teacher. If the challenged person didn't get the answer right, the challenging team got the point!

3rd grade- Mrs. Wann
4th grade- Mr. Kirby
5th grade- Mrs. Anderson (a.k.a Ms. Guardiani- she got married!)

Here are a few videos from the game...

Here, Mrs. Wann (3rd grade) was challenged to a 5th grade social studies question. It wouldn't have taken her so long to answer, but she was freaked out by having to erase the board by hand. :)

This is the 3rd grade student challenged to the 3rd grade science question. She then challenged the5th grade teacher to the 5th grade grammar question.

The battle between Mrs. Anderson and the 3rd grade student lasted 3 rounds. I can't wait until the student is in Mrs. Anderson's class in 2 years!

You get the idea!
The ending scores were-
3rd grade- 6 right answers! 
(each student in 3rd grade gets a piece of candy!)
4th grade- 7 right answers! 
(each student in 4th grade gets a popsicle!)
5th grade- 9 right answers! 
(each student in 5th grade gets an ice cream sandwich!)

To end the pep-rally, Mrs. Overton read a story titled Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!




What a day! I can't wait till TCAP week, can you?

** TCAP testing is next week! Gets plenty of sleep, be at school early for breakfast, and BE ON TIME! Testing starts at 8:15!**
