    Eisenhower Wins Battle of the Books

    Elementary and middle schools across the Davenport Community School District gathered at the Eastern Branch Library on Wednesday, March 30, to compete in the grades 4-6 Battle of the Books Competition.  Each year the Iowa Association of School Librarians nominate around 20 book titles for the students to read, and then in March, the students vote to determine which book will win the Children’s Choice Award.  During the Battle of the Books each team had to answer one hundred questions based on the 20 nominated Children’s Choice Books.  Eisenhower Elementary finished first with McKinley Elementary finishing in second place.   The Eisenhower Elementary team will now represent the district at the regional competition on April 16.  The Eisenhower team: Allison S., Lola B., MiaJoy N., and Isaac T.

    Robot Invades Eisenhower

    The 5th grade students have been working with computer coding.  The students are learning the concepts of computer coding through simulated games of Minecraft and Angry Birds.  After learning these concepts, many of the students have had the opportunity to use their new skills in programming the robot – Dash.  In the video below, four of our 5th graders will demonstrate the Robot in action and then reflect on this experience.  

    Computer Survey

    Our school has partnered with BrightBytes – an educational research organization – to explore our use of technology for learning.

    We invite you to answer a few questions about your technology use. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete on any device with internet access.

    The SLANT Strategy

    As noted in the book, Teach Like a Champion 2.0, it is very important to teach our students procedures in the classroom.  Like practicing the procedures for lining-up, it is also important to teach our students techniques to help them pay attention, focus, and learn in school.  Many of our teachers are using the strategy of SLANT.  In the video below, Mr. Specht’s class created a song to help us all remember this strategy.  SLANT is an acronym:
