Students enrolled in Jane Murphy’s first-grade class at Slocum Elementary School recently stepped into the role of a teacher as they wove together nonfiction stories to teach their classmates about new subjects.
The young students chose to write about subjects such as how to play basketball and the differences between various species of sharks. They supplemented their stories with detailed illustrations along the way. Within their image panels, the students used visual enhancements such as labeling and zooming in to assist their fellow authors in further understanding the message being conveyed.
The world famous ‘Cirque du Jour’ travelling circus troupe recently introduced the fifth-grade students of Slocum Elementary School to some of the special circus skills necessary to entertain their fans, classmates, friends and parents during culminating performances at the end of the week.
Throughout the course of their workshop sessions, Slocum’s talented fifth-graders worked as escape artists, jugglers, plate spinners and stilt walkers. During the performances, the high-energy music motivated the performers and audience members alike as the students dazzled the crowd with their newly acquired skills.
The Cirque du Jour program is designed to motivate students to participate more fully in physical education and cultural arts activities.
In celebration of completing their Pick a Reading Partner program, all students at Slocum Elementary School were recently treated to a special visit from multitalented entertainer Jester Jim.
During his visit, Jester Jim showcased his stunning juggling skills for the students, along with his catchy songwriting abilities. With his handy “loop pedal” by his side, he had the students call out literary characters from their readings, and turned the subject matter into multilayered songs.
