Mobile Ed productions brought an enchanting field trip all the way from Michigan to the first and second graders at Bell Elementary. The students were thrilled with the astronomy lesson reflected on the inside walls of the SkyDome. They had been learning about the stars and planets in their CKLA reading unit recently, so the mobile planetarium capped off a very interesting unit.
The WCHS Child Development Service 1 class worked outside their classroom this fall to bring an informative practical living skills exercise to third graders at Monticello Elementary School. The third graders enjoyed attending the tea party put on by the "big kids" that they so admire. They learned not to put their elbows on the table, have phones or other devices on during any meal, and to excuse yourself if you have to get up during the event, just to name a few of the take-aways. The youngsters learned not to tilt back on their chairs and not to reach across the table or someone else. These social skills may seem like something that can be taken for granted, but they are important for adults to understand too. In fact, during a summer training session for staff, an etiquette class was taught by a national presenter known as Miss Manners, who shared the do's and dont's of proper etiquette.
This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight your favorite stories, authors, and even your own stories! We can never over emphasize the importance of sharing our stories – our voices – our words – in thoughtful, professional, and meaningful ways. Proficient communication in both written and spoken forms are important priorities within our district’s literacy goals.
