Deep Run:

The 8th grade Gifted Enrichment classes at Moody Middle School are organizing a health event to raise awareness for Noah’s Children. If you want to support the patients, come to the “Health Day” at Deep Run Park in Shelters 1 and 2 on March 3rd from 10am to 2pm . We will be collecting much needed supplies for the families involved with Noah’s Children. Some of these supplies include personal sized toiletries and gift cards for daily living needs (gas, food, etc…). There will be an information table, yoga sessions, a health walk scavenger hunt, and food trucks! Be sure to come to event and support our fellow Raiders and patients at Noah’s Children!

 

Short Pump Park:

Do you like animals? Do you want to help benefit the Richmond SPCA? If you said yes to either of these questions, then consider going to the 2nd Annual Puppies in the Park event at Short Pump Park on March 10th from 10-2! There will be games, a Trivia Trail, a photo booth, and more for you and your dog to enjoy together! Moody Middle School 8th grade gifted classes are hosting their service learning project and hope to see you there!

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.

Grade 1– Students are beginning to understand how mistakes help us learn, and that is okay to make mistakes.  We are also discussing the benefits of having a growth mindset and  strategies to use when mistakes happen.  Students will demonstrate how we can turn “I can’t” statements into “I can’t yet!” statements.  Students will conclude the unit with a STEM team building challenge, that will definitely be full of mistakes!

Grade 2-  Students will take a learning style inventory to discover the best strategies to use when studying. Next, we will examine the parts/ functions of the most important organ in our body: the brain.  Students will become neurons and realize that making mistakes is one of the best ways your brain learns and grows. The unit will conclude with a STEM team building challenge.

Grade 3- Students are creating a flap book designed to showcase if they are left/right brained, their strengths in different areas of intelligence, and their best learning style(s).  We will then discuss the importance of making mistakes, and how sometimes failures can turn out to be better than the intended goal.  The unit will conclude with a STEM team building challenge.
