US Synthetic came to teach the 6th grade about problem solving.  They taught the students about the problem solving cycle - PDCA.  PDCA stands for Plan, Do, Check, and Adjust.  Their purpose was to help the students recognize the importance of discussing the problem before solving a problem and being willing to try multiple attempts to solve the problem.  The students had a great time learning this through building towers.

Mrs. Kesler is the new Art teacher at Orchard Hills.  She has an outdoor theme in her room and decided to have all the students in the school help her decorate her classroom by having each child paint or color a flower.  The older grades made theirs with watercolor pencils and painted them.  The younger grades colored a Van Gough inspired flower.  Isn't this beautiful!

The kindergarten classes just finished learning about different emotions and feelings they have and how to deal with different emotions.  They were able to share things that make them happy and excited.  They also learned about how to help people who feel sad and also what they can do to calm down if they get angry or mad.  They learned that they can walk away, take deep breaths, get a drink, color, talk to someone, exercise, and more.  They have also been working on fine motor skills and how to use scissors and glue.  Here are some of their creations.
