    Tilton School Principal’s Newsletter:  May 25, 2015

    Dear Families,

    Please take a moment to read some curriculum highlights from each grade level team at Tilton School.

    The Kindergarten team has been buzzing with excitement this month.  Children have been studying about all types of insects.  We have researched the butterfly, its life cycle and habitat.  Classrooms are eagerly watching caterpillars grow and change into butterflies right before our eyes.  Students have been recording observations into butterfly journals each day.  Kindergarten has also conducted an author study on Eric Carle.  In math, classrooms have just completed an exciting unit on composing and decomposing numbers and are now working on comparing different objects by attributes.  Students continue to strengthen their skills in Writers Workshop.  We have been working consistently on interactive writing pieces as well as adding more details to our stories.  Each classroom also implements a weekly cooperative learning piece on a book that is familiar to students.  During this time, students discuss story elements such as characters, setting, problem and the solution of the story.  Students truly enjoy this time each week and it enables them to have in depth discussions with peers about their ideas.

    First grade team is currently working on the life cycle of butterflies and plants. Thank you to the PTO for supplying our classes with the caterpillars to raise and observe. In math, students are collecting data to graph and then we’ll be moving on to geometric shapes. As writers, students are working on informational pieces about animals. The first graders continue to work hard in preparation for second grade!

    Second graders are immersed in a literature unit on folktales. Students are listening to, reading, and analyzing popular folktales and fairytales, including Stone Soup, Hansel and Gretel, and The Three Little Pigs. In science, students are learning about the different states of matter. Finally, in math students are studying geometry. Students are learning how to manipulate shapes to create other shapes, and are also learning how to divide shapes into equal parts to prepare for studying fractions in the upper grades.

    Third Grade is working with informational texts and reading folk tales.  Writing block includes research and biographies. In Math students worked on reviewing for PARCC testing and the next unit will be measurement and data and end of the year review.  In science, students are learning about the States of Matter as well as properties of objects.  Children are also studying and learning about Massachusetts in the American Revolution in our social studies unit. This topic will be followed up with a culminating field trip to the Boston Tea Party Museum on 6/16.

    Fourth Grade is working on measurement conversions and problem solving as well as measuring angles and classifying shapes in math.  During the ELA block, students are working on research writing and reading and writing about what has been read. Students have also had practice comparing two texts as part of PARCC practice. In Science, students are studying about the parts of a plant and their functions as well as focusing on plant adaptations. Social Studies has centered around studying the regions of the United States with special focus on the Northeast and Southeast regions.

    Families are welcome to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new playground on Monday, June 15th at 10:00am.  Thank you to the City of Haverhill, Community Development Office and Pentucket Bank for their generous donation to the new playground.  See the reverse side of this paper to view the monthly calendar and upcoming events.  As always, don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the main office at Tilton School at (978) 374-3475.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Maureen Gray, Principal

  • Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders

    Haverhill-10for10

    “In 2005, Team Haverhill was founded to make Haverhill a better place to live, learn, work and play. We’ve dreamed big and accomplished a lot. To celebrate our success we’re going to do what we do best – help build up our community.

    In recognition of our tenth year of service, Team Haverhill is sponsoring ten “mini-projects”– ways we can make a difference in our community with a little bit of time (one day or less) and a little bit of money ($150 or less).” (from: http://teamhaverhill.org/projects/community/10-for-10-10-small-projects-for-2015/)

    Mrs Perry’s first grade class was one of the winning proposals. It was titled “Today’s Readers, Tomorrow’s Leaders” which focused on reaching out to our community leaders through letter writing to share with them the class’s favorite children’s books and to find out what their favorite book was when they were in first grade.  Through the grant, they were able to purchase the community leaders’ favorite children’s books and donate them in their honor to the Haverhill Public Library. The community leaders were then invited to Mrs. Perry’s class to hear summaries prepared and presented by the students. Superintendent Jim Scully also donated two books to the class, one of which he then read aloud to the students-Dragons love Tacos by Ido Turgeman. The students LOVED it!

  • Earth Day!

    Students in Mrs. Perry’s first grade, along with our PTO president Heather Ray,  planted flowers outside of the school to honor Earth Day. Members of our Discovery Club also jumped into action cleaning out any trash left behind once the record snowfall finally melted! Great job making our school look beautiful!

    Green was the color of the day at Tilton School on Tuesday, March 17th. Ms. Conway entertained the students with her guitar and beautiful singing. She told stories of leprechauns and Ireland. Mrs. Mackay and Mrs. Hickey seemed to be in competition with each other to see who had the craziest St. Patrick’s outfit!
