South Side Elementary

Beth Munk from the Kendallville Public Library has been conducting a book club with some of our fourth grade students. They have been enjoying the book Wrinkle in Time together. The students can’t wait to have the book finished in time for the upcoming movie release based on the novel.

Our fourth through sixth grade students have been shooting arrows in gym class as part of Mrs. Bowman’s archery unit. Students do an incredible job with the important safety procedures that Mrs. Bowman has in place.

Fourth graders met with their kindergarten reading buddies this week. Kindergarteners read aloud and listened to the fluent reading of their 4th grade buddy. Fifth grade used South Side’s brand new google exposition kit to visit some of the historical places from the start of the American Revolution.

The Trailblazers had a visit from the Cat In the Hat and her two Things last Friday on Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Also, Sixth grade celebrated Read Around the World with a book tasting as our classroom was transformed into Starbooks Cafe. Newly purchased classroom books and books from Kendallville Public Library were sampled and given a review by students. Sixth grade students were able to place an order to read books they found intriguing during our book tasting.

Mrs. Bowman ran a fundraiser for the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart. This fundraiser brought in $1,779.00 for the cause. Way to go, Mrs. Bowman!

Sixth graders at South Side earned a brain break after all of their hard work on ISTEP last week. We broke out the Ozobots and challenged ourselves to create maps using codes. Sixth graders had to create maps that were measured down to the millimeter while incorporating multiple codes.

Second and fourth graders will be performing on Tuesday, March 13 at 6:30 pm. They will show what they have been working on this trimester: new rhythms and pitches, independent musicianship, and performance skills. The fourth graders are really excited to show how they can sing more than 1 part at a time! And our after school music group, Music Makers, will be performing at the FAME festival in Fort Wayne on Sunday, March 18th at 3:40 pm.
