Rome City Elementary

This week was a busy week for ROMANS! As a fun celebration before ISTEP, fifth graders explored with the VR devices and Mrs. Ventura! The students visited National monuments like the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and Mt. Rushmore.

The music room has had a wonderfully noisy week as Romans are continuing some end-of-year projects using skills that we have been learning in music. First grade wrote their own story last week and are excited to put sound to it using classroom instruments this week. Third grade has been working hard learning recorders and our on their way to the Recorder Olympics very soon. If you see a third grade Roman wish them luck in their competition! Fifth grade has been working on a commercial project and this week they are eager to write and add the background music. K, 2, 4, 6 are all preparing for the upcoming concert on April 26th. Many are excited to perform the show tunes for their friends and family.

Fourth graders have been reading The Lightning Thief. As they read about Percy

Jackson’s quest across the United States to return the lightning bolt to Zeus, students are tracking his quest. Students are measuring and calculating the miles and different directions Percy travels. Students are using Notice and Note strategies to make predictions and try to stay one step ahead of the monsters Percy encounters on his quest. Reading, geography, and measurement skills have been integrated in this activity.

First graders have been writing expository texts about animals and their habitats. The students have each picked an animal to research, turned those facts into a writing piece, and have drawn a labeled and close up picture of their animal which will be turned into a book. Students will also be designing and creating a model of their animal’s habitat during Science.
