News Show

Hello!  My students have taken the bull by the horns this year and decided to be the first class to put together a CIS News Show.   We work hard during the week to create scripts and then record the show.  Then every Monday morning, all of the  students in the school begin the week by watching that week's news show.  Check out the first three that we created.  We just got done recording next week's show and then will have one more week before passing the baton:)

Week of 9-26-16 : 

Week of September 19th:

Week of September 12th:

ENJOY!  We have had fun creating them and working on our public speaking skills.

Hydro the Snake

Jennifer wanted to share her pet snake, Hydro with the class. It took a lot of convincing, but I finally gave in;) Some of the students were brave enough to hold him, but not me!

A Fossil Find

We love to have visitors in the classroom. Yesterday we enjoyed listening to Hannah and her dad tell us about their weekend adventure. They went fossil hunting north of Ardmore, SD, and wanted to share their finds with the class. They took the time to create a slide presentation and then passes around fossils of clams, ammonites, and baculites.

Learning about Biomes

The fourth grade students have been researching biomes in Science. Today we get to enjoy the slide shows. The students are also taking notes about the biotic and abiotic components. They will then each create a foldable about all of the biomes.
