Math Boot Camp
Learning did not take a vacation this summer at Marvin Elementary.
Marvin hosted one of the first Singapore Math Boot Camp sessions for students in the county who are new to 5th grade AIG math. The camps were taught by UCPS AIG teachers including our own, Leesa Martins.
Students learned about model drawing, a strategy often used in Singapore Math. For an explanation about model drawing, you can go here. Students also learned about number bonds and how they can be used to solve addition, measurement, and fraction problems. Along with all their learning about math, students managed to make new friends and have some fun.Full Story
Ni hao! (Hello!) from China
This summer, Mrs. Bisson, Ms. Dover, Ms. Emmons, and Mr. Hazel are enjoying their “time off” just like all other Marvin Elementary teachers…they’re just doing it from China!
As part of a cultural exchange program managed by Marvin Ridge High School, thirty Union County teachers are in Nanjing, China to help support the success of the summer cultural teaching experience at bilingual summer camp.
Since arriving in Xi’an on June 30th, the teachers have immersed themselves in Chinese culture. They have climbed Huashan Mountain, walked atop the city wall, visited the giant wild goose pagoda, and gazed upon the eighth wonder of the world…the Terracotta Warriors Museum.Full Story
