Units of Study
Please make sure I have a current email. Email is the best way to get in touch with me. My school email is
. If you would like me to email more than one address, let me know and I can accommodate your request.
I strive to follow the higher level pyramid of Bloom's Taxonomy (Bloom, 1954) when designing units.
Those upper levels require learners to:
EVALUATE (make a thoughtful choice between options, with the choice based upon clearly stated criteria)
SYNTHESIZE (invent a new or different version)
ANALYZE (develop a thorough and complex understanding through skillful questioning).
Just a few topics we might cover during their two year experience
Themes and Curriculum Tie-In
Group Instruction and Discussion
Small Group Learning
Individual Research and writing
Google accounts for writing, presenting and sharing work
Computer Programming (Tynker and code.org)
Animoto, wordle etc. for presentations
Game Club (Thursdays after school - two eight week sessions)
Destination Imagination (team academic competition)
Math Team (STRONGLY recommended for all Math Enrichment Students)
Camp Invention (summer camp)
Extra Curricular Offerings
All units are designed to stimulate thoughts in an area that might not be covered in their grade level curriculum.
You will receive a unit overview before each new unit. This will outline the standards included in the unit and what to expect at home.
Units usually will last for the quarter with a culminating project at the end. Some assistance at home will be required. Information will be provided via email, Google Classroom or take home papers with details.

: I have a class page last year and it was really successful! I post pictures and general posts for parents on this page regularly. If you utilize facebook please ask to join "
Mrs. OG's Enrichment Class
". You will find it a great way to join us in class adventures!
I use this tool to send links and assignments to students. They also turn in assignments through this site. It is a very useful way for me to communicate to the students and collect online work.
Developing challenging goals and planning how to achieve those goals is critical for all learners. In this class, students will learn to develop and work on personal goals all school year. Goal sheets will be completed during class and worked on at home.
When the deadline is done, we will announce their outcome. Successful outcomes will require that tha key be decorated and returned to class for display. Unsuccessful outcomes will also be discussed in terms of learning what to do next time and students will be encouraged to just move on to the next challenge or retry.
In this class I expect students to be:
helpful, kind, polite
seek out ways to get the job done
DON'T GIVE UP
prepared, prompt, on task
I look forward to learning with your child this year!
