Lower School News: October 26 – October 30, 2015

Math Lab

In Math Lab, students in third grade practiced writing, adding, and converting fractions to lowest term. The students changed improper fractions to mixed numbers. They used “Cheez-It” crackers to add their fractions. It was a fun, edible activity.


Students in second grade discussed several different graphs. They had a taste test to decide their favorite apple. They put their favorite apples on a pictograph and answered questions about their graphs. We also discussed adjectives to describe Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Gala, and Golden Delicious apples.



Science Lab

This week in Science Lab our 2nd graders from Mrs. Clemments and Ms. Traughber’s classes investigated Animals. We identified animal specimen by their similar characteristics. We observed Mammal bones, Bird feathers, Reptile scales and shells and Amphibian life stages. We had live crickets to observe Insects have 6 legs. We had live minnows to glimpse Fish breathing with gills.

Save the date! Thursday, October 29 we will host our annual 1st Grade Pet Show at 9AM in the Gym. This is a wonderful event that you will not want to miss!

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
