5th Grade News

 Have we really been in school for a month already? 5th grade is up and going strong! The first week we really focused on routines and expectations. We have a full classroom, so time management is extremely important. Our routines and transitions are going smooth now! In reading, we are working on finding good fit books. This means students are recognizing, on their own, if the book they choose to read is a "good fit" for them. I love seeing their face light up when they are figuring these things out on their own and are able to choose the best book for their reading ability. We are also keyed . . .

Fourth Grade News

The 2017-2018 school year is back into full swing here in Fourth Grade!  We have 15 students that are all eager to learn and grow educationally. We started out the year with routines, procedures, and rules for the classroom and school.  The students are doing a great job following or abiding by these.  We have hand signals that go along with some of our rules and they think they are pretty funny sometimes.  For example: one of our fun ones is to make deer antlers on your head, smile and recite "Keep Your Teacher Happy".  Of course, they can't all be fun ones, but the students have caught . . .

He also discussed how to winterize your car, emergency supplies needed, and the importance of wearing your seat belt. All of these lessons the students will need next year as they head out on their own.

Preschool News

I can’t believe that we have been in school for a month. We are working hard to learn our ABC’s. We are learning to work together to put puzzles together in the correct order.  We are also working on identifying our name in print. Mrs. Glidewell and myself made name puzzles for the students to work on. They also have to identify their name on the back of a chair to find their seat, when we sit down for lunch, snack or other table work. This is really helping them to see and recognize their name.   We also took some time to look at the “Xplore” which is sent to us by the Missouri Department of . . .
