Airport Heights students have been working hard in the Dream Big Afterschool Program and created some beautiful masks and writing about how they represent the 4 Bs– Safety, Respect, Responsibility, & Positive Attitude.

Miss Childersis leading the class with a focus on the standards:

SEL Standards/ Assets:

  1. 1D. Student has a sense of personal responsibility.
  2. 2D. Student demonstrates ability to set and achieve goals.

Language/ Math Standards:

W1.3 a. Use a variety of simple sentence structures, and basic rules of punctuation and capitalization in written work. E.A.2

b. Proofread writing for legibility, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation when producing final drafts. E.A.5

Here is what our students have written about their masks:

My mask represents RESPONSIBILITY. Responsibility means setting a good example for others. An example of this is when you are being positive when others are not. I will do my part to show responsibility by taking care of my stuff.

 My mask represents RESPONSIBILITY. Responsibility means to take care of yourself and your stuff and to be prepared for whatever you do. An example of this is to teach other people how to be responsible. I will do my part to show responsibility by instead of just saying I’m going to do it, I will have to show that I’m responsible.

Airport Heights students are Super!

Here is stage 1 of the mask making.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the last two weeks in our SEL After School Program, students used thier imaginations to create a super hero character.  They created masks and capes to show the power of each hero.  The masks were made with Ms. Chelmo out of a clay fitted to each students face.  The capes were made with Ms. Mayer out of fabric, with many chances to decorate it.

Here are the Social Emotional Standards that were addressed in the activity:

Self-awareness – 1B Student demonstrates an awareness of his/her own traits. (in creation of character phase).

Self – management –  2D Student demonstrates ability to set and achieve goals. (completion of project)

Social-management – 4A Student uses positive communication and social skills to interact effectively with others. (during sharing and cooperation with materials)

On Tuesday, Airport Heights Elementary started our Spring SEL (Social Emotional Learning) After School Program. This is an opportunity for students and teachers to participate in fun and creative activities while developing Social Emotional Learning competencies.
In one class, Nurse Brown and Ms. Becker have teamed up to teach An Introduction to Tap Dancing. Students in this activity will:

  1. demonstrate awareness of personal traits
  2. use positive communication and social skills to interact effectively with others.

 Here’s some of the work from the first day.

 

 
Over the next two weeks, airportheights.org will be highlighting some of the work from this program. Look for Super Hero Art, Polar Bear Press, Math Derby, and more.
The program is in session for the next two weeks on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.There are still some spots available– contact the school office for more information 742-4550.
The program is funded through Title I.
