Monarch

Kristin McEachern and Fran Pancoast

Kristin McEachern and Fran Pancoast

Monarch Room is an Upper Elementary classroom for levels 4-6 on the Toledo Campus. Kristin McEachern and Fran Pancoast are the classroom’s co-teachers.

For the last few weeks of school,  the Monarch students worked on an Imaginary Island project.  This project is a culmination of many of the topics that students  studied during  the school year.  Sixth level students headed up the project, guiding 4th and 5th level students in island groupings.  Students collaborated to make sure the plants and animals on their island matched the biome they chose for their island.  Students also worked together to develop such cultural components as government, language, religion, transportation, and shelter for their island.  Students shared their islands with parents and other guests on the last day of school.  Original performances by members of the Diamond Isle and Rossia Forestia were also presented.  Their hard work and team work paid off with an impressive display.

The Monarch classroom visited Seneca Caverns on May 15.  While at the caverns, students mined for gems and went exploring through five levels of caves.  They even tasted the waters of an underground river.  One student described the experience as, “Refreshing!”IMG_0225IMG_0224IMG_0223IMG_0221IMG_0217IMG_0211IMG_0213

  • When: Wednesday, May 6, from 3:30 – 5 p.m.
  • Where: Toledo Campus East Building Tech Lab
  • Who: 3rd – 6th level
  • What: Scratch Day is a day for students who want to learn Scratch, or have already learned it. There will be many activities for students without accounts, and anyone with a Scratch account will be able to share some of their projects in a show-and-tell.

What is Scratch?

Scratch is a programming language for kids developed at MIT. There is a website for kids to learn scratch programming and share their projects. It is very simple and easy, but is sometimes used to make very complicated projects. Some Scratchers like to post art or animations on scratch, while others post games, simulations, or stories.

If you are interested in attending, please email jschoepf@wsmctoledo.org.
