Amelon...Keep Calm and use your THINKING MAPS!

This week we are working on THE BUBBLE MAP!  This map is used to describe, use vivid language, use your five senses, qualities, attributes, characteristics, and properties...remember ADJECTIVES ONLY!  This map will help students build a rich vocabulary.

Practice a Bubble Map at home and let the THINKING begin!

Amelon...Keep Calm and use your THINKING MAPS!

The Thinking Maps® model program consists of eight maps that correspond with fundamental thinking processes. The Circle Map is used for defining in context; the Bubble Map, describing with adjectives; the Flow Map, sequencing and ordering; the Brace Map, identifying part/whole relationships; the Tree Map, classifying/grouping; the Double Bubble Map, comparing and contrasting; the Multi-Flow Map, analyzing causes and effects; and the Bridge Map, seeing analogies.

About the new School Websites

Dear Parents, Staff and Community,

Welcome to the new ACPS School Websites! Why the change you might ask? For our parents and guardians the plan is to make the school websites uniform and similar in layout. The thought behind this is if a parent has children in more than one school they can easily navigate across multiple sites when looking for the same information. It has been years since the launch of the old sites and it is time for a new look and feel.
