My fifth grade students have identified increasing recycling on our campus as a project they would like to work on. We began the Kittridge “Green Team” project by writing a short survey to find out what the school staff recycles, and how we could improve recycling. The students interviewed the staff and compiled the results. They also counted the number of recycling bins in every room on campus, and made a list of places that needed bins. They did a mapping activity on our campus, tallying where trash was found on the ground, where bottles or cans were found on the ground or thrown away in regular trash cans, and which areas had the most foot traffic. The students then decided on the best areas to place recycling bins for bottles and cans. When we get these recycling bins, the students will design a presentation to take into our kindergarten to 4th grade classrooms to teach the younger students why recycling is important and how to use the bins correctly. In the spring, the 5th graders will hold a poster contest and a writing contest promoting Earth Day and the “3 R’s.” At the end of the year, we plan on having the 5th graders teach the 4th graders how to carry on the recycling program next year.

We will use our meeting times to learn how to use the round looms and knit hats for NICU babies and our homeless population. After the hats are complete, we will deliver them to the hospital and the Salvation Army which provide meals for our homeless population.

Goal is to increase writing across the content area by introducing digital literacy activities. Each activity will follow the same general procedure. 1. Students will be introduced to a concept. Activity will take approximately 2 days. (Example for math: integers) 2. Students will practice and analyze concept. Activity will take approximately 3 days. (Example: hands-on activity) 3. Students will research and write about the concept. Activity will take approximately 5 days. (Example: research and write about math based careers) 4. Students will produce a podcast, vlog, or blog as a culminating assessment of understanding. Activity will take approximately 2 weeks. (Example: Vlog on real world use of integers)

Students will do research on current event topics dealing with the human community and human condition. Students will take the research and write informational essays using the materials provided through the grant. Students will share the essays with their peers to help others gain understanding of pressing issues effecting our community.

Digitally literate students can judge, create, and convey information in the digital world. Creating 21st century learners who are digitally literate is a priority. I plan to have students use technology to enhance their writing skills by creating blogs, vlogs, and podcasts throughout content classes. I will use this money to help create a recording studio in our middle school, so the money will go toward microphones, padcasters, and other recording equipment. The recording studio will be used in cross curricular projects (with science and social studies). The topics will include the importance of reducing waste and reusing/recycling materials, human community and human condition (through the topic of the Holocaust and various other historical conflicts), and the importance of various species of wildlife (in different geographical locations).

Students will work in small groups to plan a beautification plan for our school. Students will research the needs and wants of our school. Students will research and compile a list of trees and plants that grow well in our region here in North Georgia. Students will construct an essay explain steps of research and findings along with a vision plan including illustrations of beautification plan for the school. Each small group will present the completed project to a variety of stake holders to include parents, students and teachers.

Our vision is to have a creative, welcoming writing lab equipped with alternative seating and lighting that offers a different feel than the traditional classroom. While our ideal circumstance would be to have every classroom equipped with alternative seating, we realize that you have to start somewhere. Since writing is a critical component of every other subject, we thought, "Why not start with our writing lab?" By providing our students with wobble cushions, yoga mats, exercise balls, video game chairs, and dry erase tables, we are hoping to create a fun environment where our kids can get excited about writing. Our plan is to allow allow students to use the writing lab as a place where they can focus solely on the writing process. All of our flexible seating options will help students use up their excess energy instead of having that energy manifest as a distraction in the classroom. This will allow students to focus on producing the best writing possible.
