Morgan Cleveland, Philip Lewis, Caroline Atkins, David Waters, and Sungmin You determine the fractional part of a given group. 


Students in Welch Elementary’s REACH program for Gifted Students are involved in weekly activities throughout the school year which can enhance their learning.

“Students come to REACH one day per week to participate in activities and assignments centered on a theme,” said Welch’s gifted teacher Sharon Crawley. “Through thematic interdisciplinary units, the teacher helps students to see connections across the curriculum, and thus help to make individual parts of the curriculum more meaningful. More importantly, interdisciplinary units encompass not only low order levels of thinking such as knowledge, comprehension, and application, but also high order levels of thinking such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.”


Here are some activities of which Welch’s REACH students have recently been a part:


•First and second-graders studied fractions.

•Second-graders sampled food with chocolate to gather data to solve date landmarks.

•Fourth-graders constructed concave polygons.

•Fourth and fifth-graders created a new soda pop as part of their study on soft drink companies using the ratios as they mixed carbonated water, sugar, and flavorings.

•Fifth-graders classified numbers as abundant, deficient, or perfect.
