Not really alliteration I know - but it sounds cool when you say it out loud. 

From Ms. Rieger - "Students from the 6th classes of Mrs.LaPlante and Mrs Dumas were treated to an exceptional cellular display. The College Human Biology class invited the students to participate in 6 different activities that focused on the structures in cells.  Students were making jello animal cells, graham cracker plant cells, playing a little bingo and basketball, using the chrome books to play a cell game and finally coloring cell structures.  The college students did a fantastic job instructing and reviewing cell structures with the 6th graders."

From me (she said I could spice it up a bit): What do get when you combine jello, graham crackers, basketball and bingo? Well you either get a frat party scene from a movie or a day in Ms. Reiger's class. One of the best reasons to be a CCS is that high school students can become teachers and role models for elementary students. This week the College Human Biology Class worked with students from the classes Mr. LaPlante and Mrs. Dumas. Cell structure was discussed using the snack foods along with a cell game on the Chromebook. There was an informational bingo station and some time to shoot hoops. Hands on learning and great collaboration. However, if I start seeing red solo cups in her room I am going to worry. Enjoy the pictures. 

(OK - which one sounds more fun?)
