News from the Classroom

Read Across America

Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books.

The PreK. Kindergarten First Grade and Second Grade will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday next week with the following activities.

Dr., Seuss Week - March 4 - March 8

Next week. we will be celebrating what would be the 109th birthday of Dr. Seuss. To help celebrate, join us in some "Seuss-tastic" attire each day.

Monday - "The Foot Book" - The week begins anew and we just know what to do, we'll dress in silly shoes for the day.

Tuesday - "Fox in Socks" - Trust us when we say that funny socks we will wear today.

Wacky Wednesday - The middle of the week? It seems quite bleak, so my friends we will give it a tweak! The day is here. Bring cheer! A time to celebrate an author dear! It's the time when Dr. Seuss was born, and without his stories, our hearts would be torn.

So show your pride! We'll wear funny hats to get some looks and read one of our favorite books, "The Cat in the Hat." Seuss - A- Thon

Thursday - Let's join in the fun, and dress up like one of Dr. Seuss' characters.

Fantastic Fun Friday - "One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish" - Yes sir, it's true. so don't be blue, today we'll dress in our favorite color shirt, just for you.

First Grade

First grade has been learning about China. We have made dragon puppets, lanterns , giant pandas, and written our names in Chinese. We have also learned that this is the year of the snake.

Third Grade

Third graders are using a variety of print materials such as magazines and newspapers to guide them in their learning. One example is Weekly Studies. This is a newspaper that focuses on many different topics in our third grade Social Studies curriculum. For example, this week students are reading about Elizabethtown, Kentucky and its history. They are also learning about the invention of the ballpoint pen. Weekly studies present two different biographies each week. This week’s national hero is Enid Yandell and our national hero is Pocahontas. The students really enjoy reading these newspapers.


Library: The elementary grades have been celebrating Dr. Seuss Birthday. PK-2 watched a Brain-Pop video about Dr. Seuss's life. 3rd and 4th grades read a biography about Dr. Seuss. We have also been learning about dictionaries, thesauruses and atlases. The middle school grades have been working on independent reading projects.


All SPD classes have been discussing the heart and how it works for us. We have incorporated jump ropes and hula hoops into our heart healthy workouts this week. We also did some agility and control work with rings and hoops in a drill that the children loved.The 8th grade just finished up a CPR project that combined SPD and Library skills. We will begin gym hockey skills next week.
