Cubbie Club Creates a Book Trailer

First graders in Cubbie Club have put together a book trailer for "The Recess Queen." This was their final product after reading the story, discussing verbs vs. nouns, and discussingáthe topic of bullying (one of the book's themes). Each student had a role in the production - reader, video recorder, actor/actress, music selector, and editor.áCheck out their book trailer below.

Cubbie Club News

OnáOctober 6th and October 10th,ástudents in 1stáand 2nd grade Cubbie Club at White Oak Elementary School wereáengaged in a cross-curricular lesson about measurement. Students began the lesson by discussing inches vs. centimeters and when/why each would be used. Students explored the classroom toáidentify items that would be measured in inches and centimeters. Next, students read and analyzed the story, "Inch by Inch" by Leo Lionni. Students then completed word problems using "more than" and "less than" and finishedáthe unit by building a tower (which then had to be measured in both inches and centimeters).áStudents wereáchallenged to incorporate their prior knowledge to build the "tallest tower." áStudents were excited and thoroughly engaged. See below for pictures.

Other Ways to Help Our School
There are 3 ways you can help our school earn points for needed supplies and it is soooo easy! á
The first way to help is by clipping Box Tops for Education off various General Mills products. áClip these and send them in to help purchase art supplies.
ááThe second way you can help is by shopping at Farm Fresh and saving your receipts. áSend these receipts to school and we can redeem them for points to purchase needed supplies. áThere are collection boxes for both items in our main office.
In an effort to raise funds for needed library supplies, we are asking that you donate your used inkjet and laser printer cartridges. áWe are able to submit these for recycling and earn a small profit. áCartridges can be turned in at theáWOSámedia center.
