Out of This World!
Janet Ivey, from the PBS show, Janet’s Planet, visited with students in grades 3-5 on April 4th!  Janet has won the Regional Emmy Award twelve times and the Gracie Allen Award five times!!!  Janet’s love of learning was very apparent as she engaged our students in an interactive question and answer session about space.
It was amazing to hear the intelligent questions our students posed and to see the spark of curiosity for the universe ignited during this interactive session.  All of Janet's Planets programs combine the three types of learning: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor along with critical questioning skills in order to stimulate student learning in a fun and challenging manner. Janet’s Planet science curriculum mission is to provide an important foundation for the development of critical thinking skills – a key component to a child’s success in life!
For more information about Janet's Planet, you can check out:  Pictured below is Janet with Mrs. Burrow's 4th grade class.
