Last week, Second grade introduced math mountains. Math mountains are a great visual representation of addition and subtraction equations. Students were able to see how numbers were added and subtracted to solve word problems and solve equations using a variety of strategies. The students will continue to use these strategies and each and every student has a new math kit with manipulatives that will allow them to learn through hands on experiences.
Pats on the Back
Each day Teachers and Staff at Battleground are watching for our students to show random acts of kindness, when we see this behavior displayed we reward these students with a "Pat on the Back". At the end of the week these students will be divided by grade level and one lucky individual from each grade level will have the opportunity to win a special prize from Mr. Carpenter!
Our winners for this week are:
From Kindergarten: Anna Garcia
From First Grade: Paola
From Second Grade: Alejandra Pineda
From Third Grade: Kaylin Robinson
Congratulations to all of our students who received a "Pat on the Back," we are so PROUD!
Keep up the good work!

Battleground would like to extend a warm welcome to Taisha Morrison!
My name is Taisha Morrison, a senior at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am currently completing my student teaching in Mrs. Allen’s first grade class. I will graduate in December with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.
The passion I have for teaching has been revived through the Battleground community. The staff has been very enthusiastic and helpful. Though UNCC offers deep understanding in the university classroom, my first graders are providing me with a rewarding teaching experience!

The Fruit And Veggie Program Is Keeping Our Students Healthy!
Battleground is proud to be a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program school again this year. This program provides students with fresh fruits and vegetables as snacks during the school day. The program has been successful in introducing students to a variety of produce they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample. Battleground is the few schools in the district to offer this program.
