SCENES FROM FIFTH GRADE

March 30, 2014

Mrs. Bullen’s class has been working on puppet shows in library classes recently.  They wrote their own little plays, which happen to have a lot of singing in them.  I have found that kids really love to perform! Here are Shelby, Nadia, J-Lyn, and Brooklyn performing their show for the kindergartners:

AMERICAN GIRL TEA PARTY!

March 28, 2014

Third graders celebrated the wonderful AMERICAN GIRL book series with a tea party this past Wednesday. Each of the sixteen students attending the party read five American Girl or historical fiction books and wrote a book review. The party was the culmination of a lot of hard work, so we went all out and had music, special tea food, and fifth grade waiters and waitresses. Here are some pictures from the festive lunchtime party!

READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY 2014

March 13, 2014

It’s a week late, but here are some highlights from Crescent Park School’s 2014 READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY!  Many Dr.  Seuss books were read and celebrated in the individual classrooms during the school day, and then the entire school assembled in the gym at 1:45 to read silently together.  Before the reading started, though, the Fifth Graders presented a quick song and dance.  Mrs. Keane’s class, during library class,  took the words and tune of “Kung Fu Fighting” and turned it into “Kung Fu Reading”.  They invited students in the other two Fifth Grade classes to join them onstage, after giving up 4 recesses to practice.  Here are some of pictures of their exuberant delivery:
