Second grade students at WDE enjoyed working with interactive number lines during math this week. The number line is an important tool for helping children develop greater flexibility in mental arithmetic as they actively construct mathematical meaning, number sense, and understandings of number relationships.

Mrs. McLaney’s fourth grade class at WDE is studying hurricanes and how they affect people. Students have learned about the dangerous effects of hurricanes. In this lesson, students made a hurricane in a bowl by using water and food coloring. Students were able to see the eye of the storm and how the hurricane can stretch over an area.

Police Officers, Nurses, and Firefighters! Oh my! Our kindergartners attended several special presentations this past week to discover helpers in our community. Each of our community helpers shared about their jobs and the special tools they use to perform their jobs. We are blessed to have the Walton County Fire Rescue, the Walton County Health Department and our very own Deputy Messenger visit kindergarten. Submitted by Elizabeth Gaither.
