In an attempt to beat the winter blues, seventh grade students designed, wrote and sent winter themed postcards home to their families.  Upon arrival at home students read the post cards to their families in Spanish and translated the message into English. This project focused on expressing likes and dislikes as well as winter themed vocabulary.

The 7/8 class enjoyed a mindful stroll through our famous historic Troy neighborhood. 

At Taylor, we are growing readers, writers, artists and confident storytellers! The young authors of the 1/2 class created and shared their All About Me books and shared them with their class. Creating books and sharing them with their learning community is a part of our learning routine.

In our Mosa Mack Science study of the Solar System, the 5/6 class explored planet scale and created an amusement park. The students displayed their amusement parks to their peers practicing their best presenting skills.

The Fraken-Toys Think Tank Engineering design project had the 3/4 class chopping, sawing, hammering and gluing old toys together to transform them into new wild and beautiful creations. 

Introducing the first 1/2 class in-school sleepover of 2021! Students brought in a favorite stuffed animal, books and blankets to snuggle to enjoy some special reading time as a community.

Thank you to our wonderful and talented neighbor, David.
Every snowstorm he builds the students a creation out of snow. This was his snow sculpture this week with our 8 inches of snow. Half Bug, other VW Bug Car.
 

The PreK kids were all saying "how did he do that?"

Grades 7/8 are diving deep into the classic Shakespearian work Much Ado About Nothing. Students work in reading groups supporting each other as they analyze this classic text.
