The campus of North Ridge Elementary has implemented a new segment in their daily schedule called Flex Time. In this particular portion of the day students are given enrichment activities to assist in their learning, while providing the teacher with dedicated time to help those friends that may be struggling over a lesson or a particular subject area.
A recent Flex Time activity had students read various Texas newspapers. Once they read a particular section, or article that intrigued them, the students wrote summaries and created posters about what they just learned to share with their classmates.
This lesson helped actively infuse collaboration, communication, context and curiosity- the 4 C’s of learning that are so important in today’s teaching methods! Great job North Ridge Elementary.
