Miss Sahlin's class loves adding to their classroom blog using the Chromebooks acquired through grants from the Nebo Education Foundation, school funds and contributions made on DonorsChoose.org.
Using Kidblog.org allows students to respond to each other and comment on one another's posts. The kids love it!!!
The fifth graders received a visit from the Discovery Gateway Museum on Monday, September 14, 2015. Phill Evans came to teach the students about chemical and physical changes in an assembly called Reaction Time. The students loved the assembly and then they even got to participate by conducting a hands on lab. The students mixed liquids and solids to discover what combination would result in a chemical reaction.
It's hip to clip! That's right! By clipping and collecting Box Tops for Education you can earn money for the school by buying products with the symbol on them. Simply clip and turn in to your child's teacher. PTA will gather them all up on Friday. The class with the most will earn a special prize.
Brookside 2nd graders have been reading stories about Henry and Mudge. Henry is a little boy and Mudge is his dog. On Tuesday, September 8th our 2nd Graders had a very special visitor. It wasn't Mudge, but it was a four legged friend. Dr. Stapel brought his poodle to school. Her name is Kista Noelle Stapel. She is a very cute and talented dog. She came to show off her many tricks. Kista had a lot of fun as she showed off all of the things she can do. Here is a list of what she did; roll over, speak, shake hands, spin, dance, walk on her back legs, play dead, give a high 5 and a high 10 and hold treats on her nose. The students just loved seeing her and are hoping that she will come back someday for another visit!
Thank you Dr. Stapel and Kista!
The fifth graders were learning about the thirteen original colonies in social studies. Students were asked to research a colony and then, together, as groups of two or three, they created a colony balloon and presented their findings to the class. They had so much fun and they turned out great!
What a fun day to drop in on Mrs. Broussard. She was teaching students how they can recognize how others make them feel. But even better she taught them how to make themselves feel better when they get their feelings hurt. The students were so excited about the experiments and so engaged in the book and activity.
