First graders and third graders partnered up to work on their reading skills.
To calculate the density of irregularly shaped objects, seventh graders found the mass using a beam scale and they found the volume using water displacement!
As a writing prompt 8th grade students took part in the Ceremony of the Twelve based off of the novel The Giver. Students sat in birth order and were called to the stage to receive their role in the community. Students then had a choice in their writing assignment, to explain the reasons they are pleased with their future job or to apply for a new job and explain why they are not suited for the one assigned.
Sunshine and sight words! SVCA Kindergarten had fun practicing their sight words outside. They had to focus on using the correct letter formation while writing their words. Their favorite part was erasing each letter with the squirt bottle, which is a great activity to strengthen their little hands!

By Neal Cruse Today we started our 5 For Life Fitness Program. Each class learned two vocabulary words tody. The first word was a long tongue twister. Cardiorespiratory Endurance which is the ability of the heart and lungs to supply OXYGEN (the second word) to the muscles during long periods of physical activity. Each student took their heart rate before exercise to show that the heart was working just not very hard. Then each student jumped over a rope for two minutes then took their heart rate again. They learned that their heart rate was faster because their muscles are using oxygen to produce energy. Activities that raise the heart rate will make their hearts stronger. All of the running and exercising we do improves our Cardiorespiratory Endurance allowing them to play longer and harder without getting tired.https://youtu.be/S4uPtOMf4FE https://youtu.be/UAOSr3E7rUM

First graders are building on the basics in reading.
K-2 students are incubating 36 chicken eggs. The eggs were candled and placed in the incubator on August 23rd. This picture is day 12. It normally takes 21 days for chicks to hatch. We should hearing peeping starting around Sept.12th. The incubator we are using extends the hatch date out slightly to around 24 days so we could still have chicks hatching through the Sept. 16th.
Now taking applications for SPED para for SVCA!
