(Mrs. Cordes) One reading group has finished "The Little White House' and has started "Under the Apple Tree". We have taken an achievement test. Miss Johnsons first grade invited us to see their dramatization of "Little Ren Hen". We enjoyed it and hope they invite us again. We made a T. V. story for reading class. Groups of four children worked together and made pictures of a story. The pictures were put together and shown on a "T. V." set. It was fun. One day we saw a film on. the sugar bush at Castalia. We were especially interested because it was about Jim Greens family. Jim brought a sample of syrup for us to taste. It is sweet and good! We made pictures of Maplewood Farm and the various processes used in making maple syrup. Thank you, Christine Kittleson for bringing an extra waste basket for the room. It is very convenient to have two baskets. Most of us have colds and we use many pieces of kleenex each day. Steven Friederich has read 28 books. He really is a "bookworm!" (Miss Camp) (Miss Ingersoll) We were studying about the doctor and nurse and how they help us to keep well and healthy. Mrs Dale Anderson came to school to tell us some of the things that nurses and doctors do. She also told us about the school nurses go to. Tuesday, we saw a movie about doctors. In the movie, it told about how the doctor helped a boy who had fallen down the steps and hurt his chin and elbow. It also showed a little boy, Jimmy, getting a check up. Monday, we started a breakfast contest. Every day we mark boxes to show what we ate for breakfast. Each day we should have juice or fruit, cereal, -milk, and bread and butter or other foods such as an egg. We are divided into four teams. Jose, Pete, Tony, and Mary are the leaders of our teams. The team that gets ten points first wins. For the next four weeks, we are having an inspection patrol in our room. We check seven things: face, neck and ears clean, hands and fingernails clean, hair combed, teeth brushed, clothes neat and straight, clothes buttoned and fas' tened and shoes laced and tied. Sometimes we check to see that everyone has a clean handkerchief. If everything is good, we get a white soap sticker. If we forget one thing, we get a yellow sticker, and if we forget more than one, a red sticker. In art, we drew pictures of ourselves. The "Snowflakes" reading group read some stories about the city, so they made a city with 'boxes. We now have 19 dental cards in, countiny Karilyn Lenth's, Beverly Hansmeier's and Jack Knight's. Third Grade. (Miss Cremer) Work and activity have been filling every moment of our school day lately. We have been studying hard in all of our hubjects. In arithmetic we are working on the process of carrying two-place numbers. Parts of things, called fractions, proved to be interesting, too. Now we are looking forward to learning how to borrow. Studying the parts of a letter and the correct punctuation of a letter has been our big task in English class the last few days. Writing letters is fun. We intend to draw names, write a short letter to the person whose name we draw, mail it in a stamped envelope and then wait and see if the mailman deliv­ ers it to the classmate we wrote t*. | Silk, wool and cotton are the main topics we have been discussing in social studies in our clothing unit., Most of us didn't realize how many processes cloth goes through before we buy it as a finished product. Norma Amundson and Patricia Brandenburg have returned their dental cards. There are only a few students in our room that still have their cards to return. February is a busy month of the year. Valentine decorations have made our room look very attractive. We are looking forward to our party. We are finding a lot of good books to read in our library. We had eight people who gave good book reports and there are more people waiting to give them. We learned in English class that there are special steps we take in giving a good report. It makes them more interesting. Taking care of birds during the winter was a subject we liked in science. We also wrote interesting pet stories. Some were about funny things pets do. Others told about favorite pets, and some were about exciting things that might happen if we had a pet. Fractions, rectangle, square and equal were new words for us in arithmetic. We have a bulletin board showing us the parts of things. Our new bulletin board is overflowing. We have found many exciting events in our newspapers. Most of us were able to visit our new hospital and some of us brought pictures and articles to share. We are proud to have such a nice hospital in Postville. Fourth Grade. (Miss Camp) Jeanann Brainard and Randi Harris have had birthdays this past week. We want to thank these girls for their treats. This past week we have been studying about tuberculosis. We are hoping our parents will let us all get tests to see if we have T. B. Wednesday, February 8, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD T" We all feel we would be braver to 1 is the day we have our T.
