Fourth Grade Classes have been learning about their “Civic Footprint” and how our government is organized. By learning about their Civic Footprint, they learn who represents them and gets them to think about their community. They can now identify key elected officials and understand who makes decisions to impact their community. We specifically researched the candidates running for our area’s school board post. I hope that they are excited to understand their roll as citizens in the election process and looking forward to reviewing the results after Tuesday’s elections!
Congratulations to those who completed the September Reading Challenge. These students will be adding stickers to a mosaic poster outside of the library. We have no idea what the picture will turn out to be! The more students who complete the challenge each month, the faster the image will come into view. I cannot wait to see what it is! Meanwhile, if students want to take a guess, they may submit their guess on a piece of paper and I will start hanging the guesses around the poster.
The Challenge continues for October too! Read 600 minutes and qualify to help add stickers to our mosaic. The more we read, the more we can work together to build this image. I hope everyone can join the Super 600 Club of readers!
The Tiger Reading Challenge has started! The September challenge for ALL students is to read 600 minutes this month. You have until October 1, 2018 to log minutes into Biblionasium. (Late minutes WILL NOT COUNT. Make sure you submit them on time.) Read books, magazines, newspapers, RAZ kids, the cereal box at breakfast – ANYTHING. Just read. Exercise your brain. Read more about the challenge and watch some videos about Biblionasium on the Tiger Reading Program Page.
