The first graders did a wonderful job with their forensics! They all were selected to compete in the regionals in Walworth. They learned so much about their subjects, and their classmates' subjects. They were introduced to doing research, and the art of public presentation. Way to go, first graders!
On February 13, grades 1-4 celebrated the hundredth day of school. Activities included building a free standing structure with Solo cups, building with 100 marshmallows and toothpicks, working on circumference while licking a Tootsie Pop 100 times, creating art out of the number 100, and 100 second workouts. It was a great day for all!
To wrap up the listening skill for Power Hour, Mrs. Saunders' group made dirt cake. They were given a recipe that they had to cut in half and away they went without asking questions. It was a yummy, fun activity!
The first graders put on a puppet show! The story was about a pig asleep in a watermelon patch and different animals try to wake her up. Molly was the narrator, Joselyn was the coyote, Payton was the snake, Mason was the mule, Octavio was the pig, Lyzzi was the girl Celina and Ashlin was the rabbit and cricket. All students did a great job giving their characters feeling and movement. They even memorized their lines! Well done, first graders!
The first graders created a huge and AWESOME poster/mural featuring six different kinds of dinosaurs. We have read about dinosaurs, so it was fun to enlarge and draw their outlines on this poster. We decided as a group how the layout should look - and that there should be a volcano in the distance! It was wonderful to see and hear the class working together and sharing ideas!
Grades 4k-4 had a fantastic turnout for the family reading night in October. Parents and students enjoyed reading books at different "reading cafes" while enjoying a tasty treat. Stay tuned for more family fun throughout the 2013-2014 school year!
The first graders learn many things about plants and how they grow. They are amazed to watch a bean plant sprout using just water and sunlight! We all watch and measure our bean sprouts. Some of them grow pretty big without any soil!
Grades 1-4 celebrated Earth Day with numerous activities. Students learned about the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), made an earth from their hand prints, made bird feeders,and planted grass. All students participated in a nature walk as well.
Early in April, students in first through fifth grade do forensics presentations. This teaches them the art of presenting a subject, demonstating something or interpreting a story in front of an audience. The students work hard on this and it's always a fun competition!
We are a small 4K-8 public school in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. We have great kids, great teachers, and great ideas! We'd love for you to be a part of our family. Thanks for visiting our site!
