Students enjoyed touring the Butlers' home construction site. The students discovered what items Buff and Chuck carry in their tool belts, the difference between water and sewer pipes, the importance of safety at a building site, the numerous wires running through walls, as well as the many geometric shapes in a framed house.
Kindergartners began to read sentences this week.
First-graders have been learning about capitalization and punctuation in sentences. They have been renaming numbers and working on odd and even numbers and place values.
Second-graders have been working on suffixes and mapping skills, as well as reviewing addition facts.
The seasons and five senses were the topics for show-and-tell this week. Several students brought excellent examples to share. Fionna and Driskoll Heath found a bird's nest in their Grandma Sherry's yard. The children were impressed with the perfectly round mud and stick structure. Jasmine Carter brought items made of mint that the students could taste and smell. Kanzetta Johnson brought her sign language folder containing the alphabet and numerals. She even shared her name in sign language. Sarah Pugh's book, titled "Animal Senses," was interesting. Adaya Pollock shared a picture book showing the forest in different seasons. Josiah and Isabelle Luze made pictures from fall leaves and branches.
