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 discussing the 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. Check out their book trailer below.
 
Cubbie Club News

On October 6th and October 10th, students in 1st and 2nd grade Cubbie Club at White Oak Elementary School were engaged 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 to identify 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 finished the unit by building a tower (which then had to be measured in both inches and centimeters). Students were challenged to incorporate their prior knowledge to build the "tallest tower."  Students 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!  
The first way to help is by clipping Box Tops for Education off various General Mills products.  Clip these and send them in to help purchase art supplies.
  The second way you can help is by shopping at Farm Fresh and saving your receipts.  Send these receipts to school and we can redeem them for points to purchase needed supplies.  There 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.  We are able to submit these for recycling and earn a small profit.  Cartridges can be turned in at the WOS media center.
