Family and Consumer Science teachers came together for a day of collaboration. They shared strategies, methods and resources with each other from their programs of study. They also discussed Perkins funding and program approvals. It was a great day of sharing and learning!
Students at Midland Elementary are studying severe weather patterns and how our atmosphere affects the weather we experience. They’re going to create a Public Service Announcement soon to inform the public about a specific severe weather we experience here in Arkansas. They’re putting a lot of work into their presentations and are VERY excited about a visit from @ryanvaughanweather next week! Great work, Midland!
We had an amazing day with this RISE 3-6 crew. We were rocking Day 3 with morphology and etymology activities and even threw in some art… can’t wait to see what Day 4 has in store.
Eagle Mountain Elementary EAST students practicing for the 2021 CodifyThis! Computer Science competition which was rescheduled for March 11th-12th due to snow. Coding these robots requires the application of math with both logical and creative thinking. Well done, EME!
We enjoyed spending the week with our 3-6 RISE participants as we learned vocabulary strategies that are in line with the Science of Reading. We look forward to new learning in November and December!
Ms. Leah Carpenter's third grade science classes recently participated in an engineering design challenge related to their weather-related hazards learning. I love seeing those SEPs in action. Preparing kids for the future! https://youtu.be/De3HESqmraA

It was so good to see so many of our fabulous K-2 Literacy teachers today through our first (of many) RISE Support zoom sessions. We had 6 school districts represented today! We support you and appreciate all of your hard work!
I had the privilege of getting to observe Dr. Butler’s robotics class at Southside Charter High School. Despite having to social distance, students managed to work as teams to build, program, and drive their robots.

Your literacy specialists had the opportunity to learn alongside some fabulous educators during our recent Phonics First training! A systematic, explicit phonics program is a critical component of the science of reading.
We had a great 3 days of learning with some fabulous teachers and administrators from our coop area through RISE 3-6 Academy!
We have had a great time of learning with our two new K-2 RISE Cohorts! These teachers are dedicated to providing all kids with reading strategies grounded in the Science of Reading.
Happy Retirement to Becky Johnson and Rhonda Taylor! We appreciate your many years of service at the Coop!
