Classes all over Boiling Springs Elementary have been celebrating the legacy of Dr. Seuss.
These first graders enjoyed green eggs (minus the ham).
These first graders enjoyed projects with Horton Hears a Who.
Fifth graders presented poetry books at their Poetry Tea on Friday, February 21, 2014. Students have been studying types of poetry and writing a variety of poems. They also learned about figurative language and its' use in poetry.
Each student wrote their own book of poetry, including a "Song of Life" poem. This poem was a free verse poem about their life experience.
Our first graders performed February 27, 2014 for parents and friends. This month they have studied heroes. They have researched famous American heroes and family heroes, each presenting to their class what they learned.
Each Friday during February, the students had a guest speaker to talk about the everyday heroes around us.
As they learned about heroes, they also invited the entire school to be heroes with them by collecting money to donate to the Humane Society. Students were encouraged to donate 100 pennies for the 100th day of school. At their performance, they presented the Humane Society with a check for $400!
The spring book fair will be held in the library Monday, March 10 - Friday, March 14. The fair will be open each morning at 7:50 a.m. and will close each afternoon at 3:30 p.m. A family event will be held Thursday, March 13 from 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. This will be a great time to "Taco 'Bout Books" with your children. Happy Reading! I look forward to seeing you there.
Pam Callahan, teacher at Crest High School, brings her students to BSE to help children learn both Spanish and French. This past semester her students taught French to Mrs. Gallman and Ms. Barker's kindergarten classes.
Pam Callahan has been recently published. She has written bilingual kindle books with pictures designed for parents to read with their children to introduce a new language. They are available in both Spanish/English and French/English. The Spanish is titled "Hay animales aquí" and the French one is "Il y a des animaux ici." She also has a short video on youtube to go along with the book for parents who can't speak the language to be able to hear the words.
