Second Grade read "Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble" this week. As part of our language arts curriculum we enjoyed a visit from our amazing Tech Coach, Mr. Hanosek, who taught us how to tie a tie. Students practiced "How To Writing." They also practiced oral language skills by interviewing a classmate in order to design a tie for them. They then wrote about their experience. We had alittle trouble but ultimately we tamed those ties!
We are proud to inform you our school is implementing an exciting, new literacy program called myON!
myON is the first-of-its-kind personalized literacy environment that integrates technology and students’ ability to match their reading level with their preferred choice of books into one comprehensive online literacy program.
The students in Ms. Camper’s 2nd grade class had a blast completing a breakout room. Students were placed into groups. Each group had to figure out tricky clues to unlock four locks on their box. The students also used their knowledge of two-digit addition and subtraction to solve the tricky clues. When they unlocked all their locks they found a book for the class and a treat. One student said “it was really challenging, but taught us to not give up.” Another student said “I learned that we learn from our mistakes.
5th graders participated in our annual wax museum. To prepare for the museum, each student researches about the life of a historical figure. They gather and memorize facts and stories about a famous person and in essence become that person for a day. Students are encouraged to come dressed as the person they represent and then present their character to other students and parents throughout the day. Great Job 5th graders!
Students and guests particpated in a patriotic program learning the history of Veterans Day, and celebrating Veterans. We had many Veterans who joined our program and were honored by being escorted by a student relative down a corridor of Cub Scouts from our school. Over 30 of our own scouts were standing in uniform showing respect for the Veterans. Each of the Veterans stood as their branch of the military was announced and all the students in the school sang the song, "Thank You Military" and "I'm Proud To Be An American".
