Congratulations to our 5th grade poets who had their submitted poems chosen for publication in the Creative Communications Anthology for Student Poetry: Jillian Dunteman, Katherine Klein, Kevin Klein, and Kate Stivers. We're grateful to 5th grade Language Arts and Literature teacher, Mrs. Jeanne Theiss, for continually supporting our students in these competitions and endeavors. Great work, Eagles!
During Advent, as we prepare for Christmas, both our 1st graders and our 8th graders performed the Nativity. While 1st graders perform for their parents and guests, 8th graders share their version with our school community. During the 8th graders performance, their 1st grade buddies join them for 2 songs, including Silent Night in sign language. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Kindergartners Celebrate Christmas Around the World
Kindergarten enjoyed learning about different cultures around the world and how they celebrate Christmas this month. 🎄
While “flying” to various countries on the map, students learned the traditions and symbols of Christmas in other cultures and countries. Using skills necessary for success, students created stockings by stringing and looping yarn, made shoes for St. Nick, wrapped gifts by cutting gift wrap, and wrote letters to Santa. Merry Christmas, everyone!
Our 5th graders had their Annual Poetry Sharing events yesterday and did a great job performing their favorites! Many included 2-reader poems that were written that way, as well as poems they re-organized to be 2-reader poems for the performance. Each class also opened and closed their Poetry Share with a poem performed together as a class. Thank you, Mrs. Theiss, for this annual event!
For the past few weeks, 1st and 2nd graders have been working on learning how to use all 10 fingers, special area keys, and where each letter is on the keyboard. Yesterday, they took the Keyboard Challenge to put their knowledge to the test and see if they could put all the keys in the correct spots.
Nearly everyone was able to get their QWERTY keyboard correct on the 1st try! Great work, Ms. Barnes and 1/2 students!
