"The Important thing is to not stop questioning, curiosity has its own reasons for existing." EinsteinWe, the SAGE Students of Copper Creek Elementary School, challenge ourselves to excel in learning by thinking differently, digging deeper and using our best effort to go beyond expectations as we stretch our brains in different directions.
Welcome to the Copper Creek SAGE Website. SAGE is a replacement math at ELA reading program for 3rd-6th grade. The program is designed to allow gifted students to rise to high levels of thinking and skills as they explore concepts in unique and "out of the box" ways. Make sure you check out the blog below for weekly updates including project and assessment dates.Overview of Quarter 3 Please read:All reading students will be working on a multi-source research paper on the person they have chosen. We will have lessons related to using different resources and taking notes usings those resources. Each grade level will have plenty of time in class to complete this project. The project requirements and rubrics can be found under the class handout link.Also in reading each grade level will focus on a unit related to US History which will include analysis of historical documents. 3/4 will focus on topics related to the Underground Railroad (including emancipation) and 5/6 Segregation (focusing on school integration).Math will have one change: each grade level will have (besides weekly assessments) small quizzes on the basic skills (add, sub, mult, divide) that we have covered so far. 5th and 6th this will include fractions and decimals, 4th will include fractions and decimals (division while numbers only), 3rd whole numbers with just adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators.
