The students and their families have been very generous with our Giving Tree project. They donated new hats, mittens, and scarves to decorate the Christmas tree. Next, the items will be given to a charity in our area to disperse to those in need. Thank you so much for helping to keep friends and neighbors warm and healthy! Kindness goes a lllll-oooo-nnnn-gggg way!
This class of Third Graders at Wayne Center Elementary School has reached a goal of 100 Blue Ribbons earned on the program called Study Island. It is designed to support and strengthen reading and math skills. The video shows students hard at work. They are encouraged to go slow and to work the problems on a piece of paper as you will see Braydon is doing. Enjoy, and then, congratulate your third grader for meeting this goal. On to 200 now!!!!
Our class performed a play for the 2 first grade classes. The play had reindeer and Santas for the main characters. The message was for everyone to remember to eat healthy. One reindeer said, "But, hay, apples and pears are better than sweets!" The first graders understood the message and realized everyone likes a cookie or two, but they all selected one healthy snack, too.
There are 3 of the same picture because in each one there was something that made me smile. I thought it might bring a smile to your face, too.
On Dec. 5th, the third graders earned a Preferred Activity Time party. This time they worked on putting the names of the reindeer in alphabetical order as they enjoyed eating our own brand of "Reindeer Chow." They had a tasty time.
On Friday, 13 third graders gave a gift back to their community by ringing the bell for Salvation Army collections at Wal-Mart. All the monies donated are kept to help people in Noble County. They could be your friends and neighbors.
The students selected various songs to sing as customers passed the kettle. As you can tell from the pictures, "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" was a hit!
November News....Third graders are earning time to practice playing games with their peers. An indoor recess time creates opportunities to work together, solve disagreements, and share game strategies. Here are some photos from our first indoor recess activities. ENJOY!
