As a physical education teacher, I always look
forward to finding ways to collaborate with my co-workers. When I was asked to
be a guest speaker for our second grade class, I was more than willing to help
out. The students needed to set a personal goal to help them become healthy. In
my experience, kids are highly engaged when the learning is interactive. With
that in mind, I created a game about healthy habits based on Family Feud. I
loved seeing the excited expressions on the students’ faces when they named a
correct answer on the healthy habits survey. Based on the exit slips, the
children were able to fulfill their learning target goals.
Six finalists are RPS 205 teachers.
What is new about next year's calendar?
The Rockford Public Schools 2019-20 academic calendar will include a September start and four additional days for teaching and learning.
All Rockford Public Schools will be closed on Monday, Nov. 26, because of the severe weather.
Thank you to our teachers for all that you do!
