Kindergarten in the Library
  • The library can be the beginning of education for
    many students.
  • In our library at Monroeton, we have computers
    for class use, and wonderful book resources for
    our students.
  • During our 21st Century Night, our Kindergarten
    staff invited parents and other visitors to learn
    about how their students are preparing for the
    21st century. For many of their students, the
    experience starts in the library.

First Grade
  • Several of our first grade classrooms have active
  • Teachers use the active boards to teach lessons,
    show related video clips from Discovery
    Education, and allow students to interact with
  • Next year, all classrooms at Monroeton are to
    have active boards.
  • All classrooms at Monroeton have four computers
    located in the rooms for student use. These
    computers can be used for AR testing, research,
    and student remediation.

Second Grade
  • In second grade, students have access to many
    different learning opportunities.
  • Active Boards
  • Computers
  • Project Based Learning

2nd Grade Project Based Learning (PBLs)
Third Grade
  • In third grade, students studied the underground
    railroad in connection to Black History month.
  • In the hall and around the school, the teachers
    re-created the travels that took place from the
    south to the north by slaves. Even the PE
    teacher, Mr. Wray helped out as a conductor.
  • Students also used glow-in-the-dark paint to
    create constellations that were used for guidance
    along the underground railroad.
  • Ms. Carter looks at maps student used to compare
    traveling by car or on foot. The students used
    Google Maps to plan their own route to the north.

Fourth Grade
  • Fourth grade parents were invited to interact
    with the Active Board.
  • Afterwards, parents could look at the different
    PBLs that their students have participated in.
  • Projects ranged from timelines, pamphlets, to
    creating new creatures, diagramming the digestive
    system, and creating their own daily nutritional

Fifth Grade
  • U.S. History is an important component of 5th
    grade. In connection to their trip to
    Washington, D.C., students took part in a PBL
    project. This PBL allowed students to create a
    PowerPoint presentation on a famous Washington
    monument prior to their trip.
  • Fifth graders are also taking part in a real
    estate/economics project. This PBL allows
    students to purchase a property, and then be
    responsible for repairs that may be needed. This
    connects their math skills to budgeting and real
    world scenarios.
  • Each nine weeks, students have researched a
    different aspect of science including weather,
    landforms, and the water cycle.
