The students in Miss Smith’s class practiced some of their 5 senses this week- touch, taste, and smell! Students created turkeys using different textures. They followed a step by step recipe to make pumpkin pie in a cup. Students also created fall trees. They even made and played with fake snow! They are ready for Thanksgiving!
Students in Mrs. Traxler’s English classes have begun learning how to write narrative continuation essays. They have been practicing concepts like writing in a consistent point of view, developing characters, and writing dialogue correctly. Additionally, they are improving their typing skills using Google docs on a regular basis for their writing.
The PATH class volunteered at We Care in Morris on Friday, November 2. They are currently in the middle of a volunteering unit and spent 2-hours at We Care packaging boxes, sorting through coats, hanging up clothing, and setting up food. They will continue working on giving back to the community by volunteering at Sunrise Therapeutic Center in Minooka and Feed My Starving Children.
Art Foundations has been studying the Elements of Design through the process of observational drawing. Here the students were using the elements of line, shape, and value to create a still-life drawing of an apple. The students enjoyed eating their apples and then drawing the phases of the apple all the way down to its core. A big thank you to our food service for providing the delicious red apples.
