Sycamore Scavenger Hunt

On March 26, pajama-clad students at Sycamore Avenue Elementary School embarked on a literary-themed scavenger hunt throughout the building. Youth and Family Services Coordinator Laura Michelsen, in conjunction with the school’s dedicated Dignity for All Students Act committee, hid cut-outs of characters from popular children’s books from “Pete The Cat” to “The Tale of Despereaux” for the students to find. This social-emotional learning activity allowed the students to put their detective skills to the test while feeling cozy in their PJs and having fun with their classmates.

After learning about rounding and comparing decimals, fifth graders in Jennifer Pierce and Michelle Stella’s class at Sycamore Avenue Elementary applied their newfound knowledge through a simulated visit to what the teachers call the “Decimal Diner.” Each student received a menu for the “Decimal Diner,” and used the prices of the menu items to solve a variety of equations.
