For Kindergarten, we have been working on echoing, learning about our 4 voices, and singing about leaves. First grade has been working on high and low by singing about spiders, pumpkins, and leaves. Second grade sang songs about Charlie catching fish and creepy crawly spiders while learning how to notate sol-mi-la. Third grade has been singing songs using all the pitches in a scale and learning how to notate the scale on the staff in order to play boomwhackers with the song.
Ensemble has also been busy. As of last Friday, they finished their 3rd performance for the year (3 in two weeks!!!) On October 15th, they performed a wonderful performance of "Make a Difference" and sign language rendition of "We Are the World" for Southeastern Regional Community Awards Ceremony at RCC. They had the theme of "Together We Make a Difference". Ensemble performed for our very own parents at our first Title I Night. They performed our National Anthem, "Tia Monica", and "We Are the World". Our third performance was for our students celebrating Hispanic Heritage. Along with some of Mr. Elpidio's students, they performed the book "Conejito - A Folk Tale from Panama by Margaret Read MacDonald.
Second and Third grade just started this week working on their Christmas Concert "Spell It Out". They will be performing it on December 16!!!

Pre-K has had a fun and exciting time in October. We had a visit from our fire department and we were able to see Sparky. We learned about pumpkins and we were able to decorate our pumpkins for Halloween. We had such a fun time dressing up for Red Ribbon Week. We really enjoyed walking around the school to show our support on saying No to Drugs! During outside centers, we were able to ride bicycles and play in the sandbox.
During October in Room 105 we have been busy learning all kinds of new things. We continue to learn new letters, sounds and Letter Land characters daily. We continue to work on our kindergarten sight words; our class has one student that knows all of them. Go Mickey! ☺ This month we have had fun learning about the life cycle of a pumpkin and being able to carve a jack- o- lantern. Each student was able to feel the inside of the pumpkin this was met with shrieks of delight. Our class made predictions as to how many seeds were inside as well. LOTS AND LOTS was the common answer we had. We have continued learning about all the various types of spiders and bats that live in our environment with us. One thing we all were amazed at was how the bat will send out a signal to see how close it is to something. We learned that was called echolocation and that bats fly at night and hang upside down. We thought that was a pretty cool thing to do. We are looking forward to what the month of November has in store for us to learn.
The month of October has been so exciting for room 100 with Mrs. Bullard and Mrs. Revels class. We have learned about fire safety from the fire department of Lumberton. As a group we had our very own onsite pumpkin patch for our kindergarteners with a day of fun activities. Then, we have learned about the life cycle of pumpkins, spiders, and bats. We also celebrated Mrs. Revel’s birthday. As a school wide activity we celebrated with a march of "hats off to be drug free". Our kindergarteners are so eager to learn something new that can help them and others to become Dino- mite dinosaurs.
October has been a very busy month in our Kindergarten classroom! We have been learning how to work in centers with reading and math activities. Students learned about Fire Safety and met Sparky through the Lumberton Fire Department. Kindergarten classes were taught all about the lifecycle of a pumpkin and had an on-site field trip so each student could find and paint their very own pumpkin. Our school had an assembly for all students for Hispanic Heritage Month but our class in particular had a ball dancing with some of the entertainers and learning all about Hispanic dancing! We have had a very educational and fun filled month!
We have learned about fire safety, Hispanic heritage, bullying, and being drug free. In ELA we have learned all about nouns and read some awesome books.. In math we have learned about part, part, whole and how to solve word problems.... Looking forward to November....

Big and EXCITING THINGS are happening in 1st grade along with Mr. Hunt and Ms. Locklear’s class. We have been writing sentences using capital letters, punctuation along with common, proper, plural and singular nouns. We learned the life cycle of a pumpkin and integrating it with Math we carved a pumpkin to sound seeds by 1s. 2s, 5s, and 10s,. Also in math we are learning to take word problems and make math equations. First grade had a visitor, Sparky the dog and the Lumberton Fire Department to speak on Fire Safety.
It’s been a busy month for 1st grade! Students have been hard at work learning about nouns and writing sentences. We have also been completing studies of the solar system, bats and pumpkins. In math, we have been building in place value and have started exploring word problems. Big things are happening in 1st grade!
Our class would like to give a special thank you to Godwin Heights Church for the class-reading buddy. Our class named him Alex. They have enjoyed reading with him. Our class is also enjoying Flashlight Fridays. On Fridays, our students are allowed to pick a partner and a couple of books of their choice. We turn off the lights and the students use the flashlights to read. This gets the students excited about reading.
For the month of October, our class studied the skeletal system in science. The students completed activities in class where they learned how to assemble and label the bones of the body. After students became more familiar with the skeletal system, they were sent home with a skeletal system packet to assemble and label the bones of the body to make a skeleton for a project grade.
October was an extremely busy month for 3rd graders. We went on a field trip to view the play Rosie Revere Engineer and out to lunch at Joe’s Crab Shack. The City of Lumberton Firefighters came to visit and discuss fire safety. We viewed cultural dances and dress of Hispanic performers during our Hispanic Heritage Program. We marched in a parade during Red Ribbon Week. Many dressed in Halloween costumes for our Halloween Parade at school. We completed our 1st NC Math Check-In this school year. Whew, many exciting experiences occurred during this month. Even though we had many exciting extras, 3rd grade was on track working extremely hard in class. Chromebooks were utilized to complete math practices problems for our NC Math Check-In. Students used the CUBES strategy to complete multiple step word problems. In ELA we studied Figurative Language, Context Clues, Drama, Poem, and Illustrations. We began reading the chapter book Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. We also studied the Skeletal System. Students completed Skeleton Projects that decorated our halls for Halloween. Third grades are working diligently through their course.
We also participated in our annual Red Ribbon Week parade to help spread the word of Don't Do Drugs!!!!
What going on in Ms. Rogers Room?
The students started learning the strategies to help them “Understand Multiplication”. They also learned the vocabulary that went along with multiplication. Some of the strategies to use were equal groups, repeated addition, and arrays. In the pictures, the student did a lesson using candy corn to make arrays. The students enjoyed this lesson. But I wonder if the best part was eating the candy corn after completing the assignment. We also enjoyed our annual “Say No to Drugs” walk around the school parade.
