In kindergarten today, students practiced writing sight words in sand. Sight words are the words students must be able to recognize and read quickly and accurately. Sight words make up about 55-75% of all words your children will encounter when reading. Using a multi-sensory approach (using different senses at the same time) helps student retain what they are learning. Students were using their word wall list as a guide. Kindergarten friends are learning how read and write!
In Mrs. Hayward’s class, the students are studying the four oceans. The students learned that the Arctic Ocean is the smallest, it is located near the north pole and it is covered by a layer of ice. Each week, the students will study a new ocean and add it to their globe using a different texture. Mrs. Hayward traced the continents and the students painted them. The students learned that the water surrounds the land. Today the students added the Arctic ocean. Sand, paint and tissue paper will be used in the weeks to come. Hands on learning helps student stay engaged and remember what they learning! view image
The LaPerche fifth grade student council for April chose "Dress Like an Employee Day" as their spirit day. Each month the student council switches to allow all fifth graders the opportunity to serve and each group can choose a spirit day to celebrate with all students. Friday, April 30, was Dress Like an Employee day! The kids were so excited to share who they were and why they chose that job or profession! We had museum directors, human services employees, teachers, athletes, servers, artists, musicians, lawyers, doctors, nurses, vets and employees from every store and occupation you can imagine. What a fun and creative day! Why did your child choose their employer or profession? Let us know in the comments below! If you have pictures from home, please add them to the album below! https://photos.app.goo.gl/WtBDWwEGeCGVph5d6 view image
A group of LaPerche students joined Mrs. Dorsey for an Earth Day clean up today! They met on Stillwater Road and worked together to pick up all of the trash! Together, Jillian, Mikey, Enni, Zadi, Sienna, and Khilola filled 9 trash bags and 2 recycling bags. They also found a mattress and a mop! A large group of LaPerche fifth graders cleaned up Deerfield park at the same time! (More details and pictures to come!) Thank you, Melissa Chaput, and the Smithfield Department of Public Works and Smithfield Conservation Commission for sponsoring the event.

In third grade today, students were making real life connections to the story they were reading. They found powerful phrases and determined their meaning by reading the words and sentences around them. Then they related their personal experiences and feelings to the characters in the story. Students shared times they were “all shaky inside” just like the characters with partners! view image
