Fayette School News First Grade — Mrs. Scheldt! What does a snowflake look like? In science, we learned that although millions of snowflakes fall, no two are ever alike, and yet all are six-sided or six-pointed. We have just finished our winter unit. Cold weather, ice, and snow are characteristic of wintc-r in the northern part of our country. Winter in the South is quite different from winter in the North. Jean Anne Streeter celebrated her birthday by treating her class mates to cookies. We welcome Kevin Vandersee to our class. He moved from Cedar Rapids. Many have been absent from our room because of the chicken pox and colds. Hope we all can be to school soon. Each of us found out as much as we could about the ground hog. Now we are waiting for Feb. 2 and wondering if Mr. Ground Hog will see his shadow. We're hoping that he doesn't. —•— Mrs. Meyer Ricky Hofmeyer's reading group has started a new reader. All three reading groups have been reading together occasionally from Ginn and Co. series in hopes that those of us who have developed good phonic ability can help those of us who are having trouble with phonics. When we work out of "Little White House" Mrs. Meyer- helps figure out all the words that can be sounded by ourselves. Wednesday Wayne Stepp chose Marilyn Scheidel, Jan Miller and Carol Lau to help him clean our supply and toy cupboard. We are enjoying our new class mate. Her name is Gayle Cul bertson and she came to our room from Pairbank. We have rearranged our tables this week. Everyone sits in a different section of the room and shares his table with a new neighbor. Danny Keig, John Singer, and Carol Anthony are passing out and gathering books, papers and other supplies this week. Music class has been especially lively. Mr. Powis is teaching us a little dance. Some of the boys can nearly swing the girls right off their feet. We have finished our unit about Eskimos and are now doing a unit about Animals of the Jungle. Friday we made murals of the Jungle. Everyone was responsible for making 24 inches of the mural so the finished picture was about 40 feet long. We have a "Who is it" corner. Each morning a. story is placed on the wall about someone in the class. During the day we all read to see of it is about us because We wish you could visit our music classes! We are learning to square dance, and we think that is grent fun. Third Grade — This week we learned a new- word. Some of us even had a little t--oub'e pronouncing. "Car bohydrates." We have been finding out how carbohydrates, proteins. fats, minerals, and vitamins help our bodies grow and keep us heal thy. Friday during Art class we wove red and white strips of paper to gether and placed it behind cut out sihouettes of Washington and Lincoln. We are subtracting and borrow ing using three place numbers in arithmetic. Most of us still need a lot of study before we know our combinations as well as we should. Ixist week we took our tests of Iowa Basic Skills. We are now a waiting the results of these tests so that we will have a (x'tter idea of which subjects we need to irn prove in. Fourth Grade — Learning the rnullipication table of G and practicing long division has been our work in Arithmetic. Each day we have arithmetic drills on the multipication and addition facts. We have the results on a chart to make a "graph picture" of how much we've improved each day. In science we have been dis cussing current and static elect ricity, and also doing experiments with magnets. Ed Bradley brought his "Magnetic Stik" set. In learning more about maps each of us were given a road map on which we found different cities, highways, and distances between towns. Jerry l^ehs brought a map of New York City, our topic of discussion in Social Studies. Un usual maps were brought by Char lene Smith who brought a tablecloth map of Alaska, Diane Yearous brought a handkerchief map of Oregon State, Becky McGee a puzzle map of the States. Many people have l>een bringing interesting books on nature, sci ence, cities, and countries. We have enjoyed these very much. Jimmy Alderson showed us his invisible man and Scott Linge showed us some shells from Florida. We saw a film this week on "Cleaniness and Health". We were impressed when we learned that 100,000 grems could be. found on a pinhead. Thanks to Layton Olson for the treats he gave us on his birthday which he celebrated January 24. We finished our study of the Middle Atlantic Slates this week in Social Studies. Kveryow in Group One Spelling got an A in spelling dictation test this week. Both groups in Arithmetic are on the final frls Tor a chapter. We found out this week th-it everyone in the room needs review in mul- tipli'.-taion and division. We found. too. that many mistakes were be ing made in addition of long col urnns of figures. We will be doing some intensive review in these processes real soon. and Barb Alber both 5 points. High rebounder was Barb Alber with 14 rebounds. The junior varsity lost 19 10. Sharon Pattison had 8 points, Sharon Farley 3 points, Barbara Keifi and Pat Holtzman both 2 points. and Dottis Van Bogart 1 point High rebounders were Sharon Pal tison and Donna Kuhens each with 7 rebounds. Sixth Grade Mrs. Buttertleld It seems good to be back to regular class work again. Many of us were happy with our grades for sr.ncster tests. We are also happy we are through with the Iowa Basic Skills tests. Our answer sheets will be sent for checking. We will know how well we did on these tests within the next six weeks. We completed our- study of Pci ence with a "Science Fair". There were exhibits of shells, plants, flowers, seeds, liarlc. leaves, butterflies, constellations, slides, magnets, and motoi-s. Mr. McCorrnick iicli-d as judge and chose a seed collection made by Mary Schmidt as the best entry Second prize was awarded to Eileen Bon jour for- her collection of seeds and third Prize to Diane Pattison for her flower- collection. Our- health book, Teamwork for Health, is very interesting. We have learned that all parts of our body work together- like players on a team to keep our' body healthy. In our Notebook we have recorded our height and weight, the com municable diseases we have had, and the diseases we are immuniz ed from. Several of us were proud to know we were taller than our teacher. In language we are studying pronouns. They are very easy. We can write the first, second, and third personal pronouns in the singular and plural form. In social studies we are reading about inventors and machines. This period in history is called the Industrial Revolution. Six pupils wrote a perfect paper for spelling dictation Wednesday. We had 20 pupils who wrote all words correctly for their final test on Friday. Thanks to all the parents for coming in for Parent-Teacher Conference. Parents of every pupil in our room attended. We welcome Mr. John Jones to our room. He will be doing his practice teaching with us for the next nine weeks.
