Mrs. Bingham's 5th grade class stopped by Mrs. Taylor's 3rd grade class while working on non-fiction text features. 3rd grade students had to find text features such as headings, maps, captions etc. in a text book. When they were finished with their scavenger hunt, they quizzed their older dragon friends to find everything that they had just learned. 3rd graders sure loved it when their 5th grade partners would get stumped and they would have to teach them.
This week's class spotlights are Ms. Hartung's class and Ms. Chen/Giles' Forest Class (Chinese Immersion). Ms. Hartung's class is very accepting of other people's differences and learning abilities. They realize that differences don't always have to divide them. Way to be kind and compassionate! This shows real Dragon spirit!! Ms. Giles/Chen's Forest class loves having a daily password to get into class. They love to work hard and enjoy their monthly class store. This class shows that working hard and having fun are also part of what it takes to show Sage Creek Dragon spirit!
Ms. Lund's 2nd gr class sure shows school spirit! They are the class spotlight this week. It started with 4 girls who helped Ms. Lund pick up some litter when she was on playground duty 2 weeks ago. Ms. Lund says, "We picked up a few pieces of litter, and then found a big black trash bag on the ground. We filled it up before recess was over. The next day, the 4 girls picked up litter again, with several more kids helping. They are still picking up bags of litter every day at recess, and are keeping our field litter-free.
5th grade students have done it once again. They have worked hard, and shown what it looks like to be a great American. They each picked a famous American that had an impact on this great country. We had presidents, actors/actresses, abolitionists, astronauts, and many other great Americans. 5th grade put on an incredible show Thursday evening to show friends and family what they have learned about Americans. They sang songs and memorized speeches for people to listen to. On Friday they shared their speeches with their fellow Dragons. They also gave a great assembly. Mr.
