Preschooler, Kindergarten, and First Grade had a different experience during Library this week. Instead of listening to Mrs. Matthews read a book, they watched the book video of The Dot by Peter Reynolds. A little girl, Vashti, who thinks she can’t draw is challenged by her art teacher to make a mark on the page and then sign it. She goes on to make more and more dots. The students then made their mark by creating their own “dot” pictures.
The pictures were then turned into 3D creations through the Colar app (http://colarapp.com/). The app is free as well as several sheets to color. Parents can then download the app and view their child’s pictures.
Here are some samples of the creations from Tuesday:

Castle Defense is an action-packed math game. To play, type the answers to activate your archers. Kill the skeletons before they reach safety. Use the number keys on your keyboard and the brain in your head. Good luck!

We have been learning about the Earth and its movement in space. We are also learning about the moon, stars and other planets. The second graders had a great time with the song “Night and Day”. The song reinforced our understanding of the difference between rotation and orbit. Plus, the song helps us to remember that the light we see from the moon is not its own light, but a reflection from the sun. The moonlight concept can be hard to comprehend. We hope you enjoy the song as much as we did. A big thank you to the camerawoman, Mrs. Anderson for making this extra special!

The elementary students, in grades Kindergarten through 5th, will be going on a field trip to Wind Cave National Park and Mount Rushmore National Monument on Wednesday, May 9, 2012. The bus will leave at 8:00 am and will arrive back to the school at 6:00 pm. The trip is free of charge to the students, but each child needs to dress appropriately and bring a sack lunch for the day.
The average temperature in the Wind Cave is about 60 degrees Farenheit, so students need to bring a jacket or sweatshirt and wear comfortable walking shoes. There are no FLIP-FLOPS allowed in the Wind Cave.
We are looking forward to having a fabulous day of fun and education!
We have set May 24th as elementary track day for grades PK—5th. If the weather is nice, events will be held on the football field; if it is not, events will be held in Lister-Sage. Exact events will be determined by location. Events will begin following lunch at approximately noon. Students will eat at 11:30 am in the cafeteria and parents are welcome to join them.
Please RSVP for lunch by calling the school at 638-4434 before May 10th.
The elementary awards are scheduled to begin at 2:30 pm following the track “day” events.
Last year, the elementary collected 81 pounds of pop tabs. The fourth grade class found that it takes approximately 1000 pop tabs to make a pound, which would make our total pop tabs collected about 81,000 pop tabs! That’s a lot of pop!
IF the elementary as a whole can collect more than 81 pounds of pop tabs THIS year, we will have a PIZZA PARTY for the WHOLE ELEMENTARY!!!
Please have all pop tabs turned in by Monday, May 14th. Stay tuned for the grand total…
