5th grade Rocket Day at TES By:Daena Eib May 14, 2019, at Tipton Elementary is Rocket Day! Before rocket day, every class made rockets. The rockets were hard to put together, but every class did it. On Rocket Day,Tuesday morning, May 14th, someone in each class passed out the rockets. The weather was perfect, clear and cool with no wind. The classes then went out to the back parking lot and launched them toward high school parking lot. Classes took turns launching and retrieving the rockets. We finished half the launches prior to specials. Then after putting fresh batteries into the launch controls, we went back out and completed the last two classes. As the classes launched, other classes took turns retrieving and returning the rockets. Everyone had a good time launching and retrieving their rockets today!

Never lose hope! Wishes have a way of coming true. Mrs. Rich's Third Grade Classroom is reading Wishtree by Kathryn Applegate. Today, they made their wishes and tied them to their very own Red wishtree. Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"—people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with her crow friend, Bongo, and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this "wishtree" watches over the neighborhood. You might say Red has seen it all. Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.

Waterford Pen Pals At Tipton Elementary School, two of the fifth-grade classes, Mr. Thomas’s and Mr. Leffler’s are doing “Pen Pals” with the Waterford Place residents. Many of children in both classes are participating. The patients there are thrilled to be pen pals with us and are looking forward to both receiving notes and sending them back to us. Some of the topics we wrote about this week were: hobbies; pets, favorite TV shows, favorite games, favorite colleges, were you in the military, what branch were you in, does Waterford do any special meals, did any groups come to Waterford, did you do anything for Christmas and New Years, what is your favorite thing to drink/ eat, what is your favorite animal, and many more! Everyone who is participating is very excited to write and receive letters. “Pen Pals” are going to be a very fun journey for us. Hopefully, all the students who are doing the Pen Pals are going to have a good time and the residents at Waterford will hopefully have a good time with this too! We thank the teachers and principal, Mrs. Rayl, at Tipton Elementary School and Waterford General Manager, Carol Ward, for letting us do the Pen Pals!

French Christmas By: Alexis Plake and Daena Eib Today, December 12, Tipton High School French students who are studying or already know French came to my classroom. Their names are: Ms. Harrigan (teacher), Kim Hearn, Samantha Mumbower, Ryan Cole, Scotlyn Moore, Emily Hunter, Izaiah Claxton, Brian Oxley, and Carly Ripberger. They taught us some seasonal French words. The high school French students educated, or explained, projects that we could do during the program. The activities we did were: Cotton Snowmen, Pipe Cleaner Candy Canes, and Make Ornaments. There were three groups who did at least one of those crafts. Some of my class made decorations for Mr. Thomas’s good friend, Jack. Others wanted to keep them. Sadly, Jack has only a few weeks left to live due to a medical condition. The children made ornaments that said “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” They also made red and white pipe cleaner candy canes. The Veterans’ Day cards we made meant so much to him. We know he will thoroughly enjoy our Christmas cards and gifts! He can use these to decorate his room for Christmas in the healthcare facility! Hopefully, these will cheer up Jack and the other residents and staff there. Before the activities, Ms. Harrigan showed us two videos. One video sang Jingle Bells in French language. The other showed us pictures and what they meant in French terms. Ms. Harrigan also showed us some lovely Paris and French pictures. The pictures were from Paris and the name of the picture was put in French wording. All my classmates had a wonderful time and enjoyed learning the meanings and how to pronounce the French words. We want to give you avv big THANK YOU, French Class!.... “Joyeux Noel!”, from Mr. Thomas’s 5th grade class.

Winter Weather Is Here WINTER WEATHER IS HERE KEVIN EMSWELLER MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2018 Winter weather is upon us. As we all know, Indiana weather can be very unpredictable. During the winter months you will be hearing of school delays or closings and may even wonder a time or two how those decisions are made. It is rarely an easy decision and one that involves talking with a number of agencies. Attached to this article is a document that serves as a guide that leads to a decisions as to when to delay or cancel classes. You can get the most up-to-date information on Twitter (@TiptonSuperin, @TiptonSchools), Facebook, Tipton Community School Corporation’s website, or any of the local media outlets. Decisions are made as early as possible and usually before 6:00 a.m. With our transportation routes and bus stops, it will be very important to make sure our children have warm coats, gloves, hats, and scarves as they walk to and from the bus stop and while they wait for their bus. Inclement weather will most assuredly result in our buses being delayed by drivers navigating wet, snowy, slushy, or icy roadways. If you have sidewalks in your neighborhood, please encourage your neighbors to keep their walks cleared of snow and ice during these winter months. In addition, please remind your children that while they may see vehicles approaching, the drivers may not see them. Being aware of their surroundings is even more important when the weather is poor. Finally, we would like to have your children in school every day that we are in session. However, we will always respect your decision as a parent when it comes to the safety of your child(ren). Together, we will continue to provide great opportunities for our children and prepare them for their future successes. TSCS School Closing/Delaying Guidelines link is live on the corporation post.

Mr. Friedle, the Tipton Elementary School Counselor, spent time in the 4th grade classrooms teaching emotional management. This program teaches the students strategies to use when they are in the “Flight, Fight or Freeze” mode. Teaching the body how to calm down to natural reactions is a necessary skill for everyone. Emotions impact everyone, and we need to learn how to control them. Students practiced using “I feel” messages and some volunteered to share these messages with the class. The students were then given a creative assignment. For this assignment, students were to be a reporter and interview their parents. Gracie Creamer said these skills are important because “When you grow up, you can teach yourself these tricks, and it won’t be so bad.”

What is DOK? Depth of Knowledge The Webb’s Depth of Knowledge Ceiling Context and the driving questions at the top of each ceiling provides administrators, teachers, and hopefully even students and parents an understanding of how deeply and extensively students will be expected to demonstrate and communicate their learning. The question stems within the ceilings actually encourage more flexibility in the level of thinking students are expected to demonstrate within these levels.

Mrs. Hendricks knows how to teach character, plot, and setting. She dressed up as four different characters and told each one's story. The students then filled out a graphic organizer. They stated who the character was, what her plot entailed, and discussed best guesses as to what the setting was based on prior schema. The students greatly enjoyed this lesson!
