Alliance Early Learning School
Kindergarten students had an opportunity to visit the fire station last week. Students got an up close look at the fire truck and the tools firefighters use. They also got to tour the fire house and were particularly excited to see where the firefighters sleep. After the visit, students in Cindy Gaines’ and Megan Harper's class made fire chief hats and learned about fire safety. Students learned what constitutes an emergency and practiced calling 911.
Alliance Elementary Schools
Students in the Flight Room spent time jumping around while counting syllables, every student jumped the number of syllables in each word. They enjoyed the activity and showed new levels of mastery. Students also worked on creating sentences during writing.
Math Measuring Fun
Cheri Ruttig's class made "Spider Donuts" for cooking as part of a multi-sensory lesson. The students were engaged and learned about math measuring, sensor and following a recipe and directions. All the students enjoyed eating them too.
Congratulations to the following grade levels displaying great cafeteria behavior for October. These Rockhill and Parkway students will eat lunch with the principals and enjoy a special treat.
Way to go Billie Muller’s class, Grace Morey’s class, Joan Skidmore’s class, Banae Fricker’s class, Michele Weingart’s class, Chelsea Minnich’s class and Bob Duncan’s class.
