CLARK — Students at Valley Road School in Clark have been learning about the original 13 British colonies that would later become the United States, and crafted “fact triangles” to strengthen math skills.
At Valley Road Elementary in Clark, Kelly Williamson’s fifth graders are exploring the 13 colonies. The students participated in an interactive colonies review activity on the SMART board. The students watched an interactive video. Then they worked together to complete a review quiz on the video and the information that they have learned about the colonies over the last two weeks. Next week in social studies, the students will start to learn about life in the colonies and events leading up to the American Revolutionary War. In the picture above, (from left) Matthew Kleczynski, Jason Szymcak, and Miah Faustino work together to answer the questions on the quiz following the interactive activity on the 13 colonies.
The students in Bryan Lowe’s fifth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark played a musical game in order to become more familiar with the original 13 British colonies. All students stood up and were asked to name a colony based on its region while music from the 18th century played on a record player. Students sat down if they answered incorrectly or hesitated.

The students in Miss Emma’s second grade class in Valley Road School in Clark are strengthening their addition and subtraction skills through the use of fact triangles. The students created their own Fact Family Neighborhoods to enforce their learning of fact triangles and the benefit of using fact triangles to strengthen mathematical skills.
