2nd Grade GM Cyber build Mayflower in STEM challenge

Mon, 2020-11-23 15:28

Mrs. Maureen Roth’s second grade GM Cyber students completed a unique virtual STEM challenge on Monday.

The class met on Microsoft TEAMS and initally read a short story about the pilgrims traveling on the Mayflower.

First, Mrs. Roth challenged the students to build the Mayflower with one piece of aluminum foil and any other objects they could find.

Then, they had to place a penny (which represented a pilgrim) onto the boat and see if it floated.  They were asked what were the strengths and weaknesses of their boat and how they would re-design it. They came up with some great ideas and found out that it was important to distribute the “pilgrims” evenly on the boat.  

It was also important to make sure that the boat was not too heavy and “not to put too many decorations on it,” Mrs. Roth said.  

They learned that a “light reinforcement” is a good idea at the bottom of it. Another child listed how it was important to make the boat large enough to fit the pilgrims on it.  

Lancer Leader: Mrs. Roth

Mrs. Maureen Roth was awarded the Lancer Leader Award on Nov. 20, 2020.

This week’s Lancer Leader Award was GM Cyber’s Mrs. Roth!

Mrs. Roth was presented the award on Zoom on Friday, Nov. 20. Mrs. Roth teaches second grade for GM Cyber and was nominated TWICE for this award! Mrs. Roth was previously assigned as a first grade teacher at McKean Elementary School.

The Lancer Leader program allows anyone to nominate a teacher, administrator or staff member as a way to say thank you for making a true difference in their family or child’s life.

The nominations for Mrs. Roth read:

“Mrs. Roth is an absolutely amazing teacher! She makes the kids feel so special, even during these crazy times. She showed the kids how to make virtual avatars of themselves and created a ‘class picture’ with them. She has weekly live meetings for skills groups and reading groups, and has fun virtual field trips as well! She incorporates holidays and spirit weeks into her virtual learning, making it super fun for the kids! Anytime my child has questions, she will call on Teams right away to help explain things until my child understands and even spend another 15 minutes just letting my child talk to her and show her fun toys around the house. She created a reverse Halloween parade for the kids with a witch’s brew station (where they received a bag with goodies), a candy station (bag of candy), a doughnut station (you guessed it… a doughnut), and a pumpkin patch station where the kids could pick out their very own pumpkins for a ‘paint with the teacher’ live Teams event they are going to have! You can feel the love she has for her students and you can tell she was truly made to be a teacher! She is such a gift to us all and makes McKean Elementary and the GM school district proud!”

“They have done an extraordinary job and effort to meet all students at their level to continue teaching them virtually. I know the virtual learning environment creates unique challenges but their creativity and use of their families to help teach goes above and beyond. They have gone out of their way to make sure everyone is learning, having fun, and still have the experience of being a kid.We are very pleased with the education this year despite being at home.”

Thank you for your service to this District and our families, Mrs. Roth!

Lancer Leader: Mr. Malec

This week’s Lancer Leader is Mr. Jacob Malec from General McLane High School.

This week’s Lancer Leader Award was General McLane High School’s Mr. Jacob Malec.

Mr. Malec was presented the award on Friday, Nov. 20. Mr. Malec teaches music and band and he is also the director of the General McLane High School Marching Band.

The Lancer Leader program allows anyone to nominate a teacher, administrator or staff member as a way to say thank you for making a true difference in their family or child’s life.

The nomination for Mr. Malec read:

“Mr. Malec has worked tirelessly with the band this year. With regulations and district guidelines changing frequently, he still managed to host band camp and several band performances. He gives the students a safe environment to learn, and he pours his whole heart into their education.”

Thank you for your service to this District and our families, Mr. Malec!
