Symmetry and Mirror Images

In math students recently learned about how to create mirror images for shapes and designs.  Here are some photos of our 4th graders using rulers and mirror-image tools to create mirror images of designs on kites!

February 28, 2018:  Today Bob, from CPort Credit Union came to Riverton to talk to students about a scholarship opportunity for 4th graders!  Students will research and write a college essay about what they want to be when they get older, what school will help them accomplish this goal, and what qualities they will need in order to achieve their dreams.  Then, winning essays will get a $100 scholarship from CPort to help support students in their goals.

Also, students got to listen to and ask questions of current college students.  They found out about dorms, college schedules, and different degrees (associates, bachelors, masters, doctorate).

February 27, 2018: Today was a special day for our 4th grade students.  Classes from Portland High School visited us to read and share their favorite books!  It was a wonderful partnership to have other students come and be a part of our reading lives.  Ask your student what book they listened to!
