Thriving in Third

Third grade learned about plant parts and functions, needs, adaptations, and life cycles. Students planted various vegetable seeds and were able to take home what they planted. If all goes well, they will enjoy eating their vegetables later this summer.

Fabulous in Fourth

In fourth grade, Ms. V has been teaching the students basic sewing and how to sew on a button for a Mother’s Day magnet.

Fourth grade held a spelling bee last week. There were two winners from each home room. The top ten then faced off for the following place finishes: the top boy speller, the top girl speller, and the overall grand champion speller. Congratulations to the top ten 2021 spelling bee winners of the fourth grade: Maci Manbeck, Mason Best, Evan Johnson, Lilly Thomas, Waylon Hodkinson, Aleah Watson, Logan DeWees, Sophia Sedgmer, Jax Triplett, and Lilly Yarrish. An extra congratulations to Logan DeWees for being the top speller for the boys and to Sophia Sedgmer for being the top speller for the girls. The overall Super Grand Champ was Sophia Sedgmer! 

The fourth grade students went on an adventure of their choice within the Reading Unit 4 topic of puzzles and mysteries. First, they built background knowledge using the leveled readers to fill in mind webs, plot graphic organizers, and vocabulary graphs. Then, they used creativity and collaboration as they made artifacts to demonstrate and present what they learned. Projects consisted of: Escape Rooms, Murals, Scavenger Hunts, Puppet shows, and much more!

Fourth graders have also been working hard on their Wax Museum projects the past few weeks. On Thursday and Friday, they presented their speeches in full costume with props. This year was a little different than in years past, as students were recorded giving their presentations standing in front of a green screen. A special thanks to Mr. Valesko and his class for helping out with the digital production! Pictured below are some of the American Heroes who made an appearance this week!

Succeeding in Sixth

Students took on stitching poppies for our veterans. They learned a whipstitch, a running stitch, and how to sew on a button. Ms. VanCamp and her sixth graders then turned the lovely poppies into magnets and they will be given to the Cadiz, Hopedale, and Scio American Legions to show our appreciation and gratitude for their service.
