Would You Rather…?

March 24, 2021 | Kate Streelman

Would you explore the deep sea or outer space?  Would you rather be an eagle or a whale?

First graders have been studying data collection through surveys and this past week, they got to create and ask their own survey questions:

Would you rather eat chocolate cake or ice cream?

Do you like yellow or orange?

Do you like pink butterfly shoes or white shoes?

Which is harder: front flip or handstand?

Would you rather see Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny?

Would you rather be a lion or a tiger?

Would you rather have a mansion or a rhino?

Would you rather have pillow fight or a tickle fight?

After interviewing their classmates, students will then take all their data and create a representation of it so that everyone can see what they learned.  It’s a great way to learn math and learn about each other!

Lead Teacher, Fourth Grade

Kate Streelman is passionate about teaching. In second grade, she decided that when she grew up, she would be a teacher and she has written proof of this goal! She is a graduate of Eastern Christian Schools and Calvin College. Ms. Streelman grew up in suburban New Jersey and has greatly enjoyed moving closer to New York City. Prior to teaching at Mustard Seed, she taught in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Kate joined the staff as a first grade teacher in 2017. Every year brings new experiences, excitement, and challenges, and Ms. Streelman looks forward to them all. A shy student growing up, Ms Streelman loves the community of Mustard Seed and how easy it is to be a part of it. She also likes to find ways to help all students feel like they are a part of that community.

Outside of school, Ms Streelman loves to read, doodle and paint, and spend time with friends and family. She enjoys exploring the area, finding new places to eat and relax, and just going for walks.
