First graders are learning about organisms in science. Recently, they have been exploring plant and animal adaptations and what people can learn or mimic from them. Check out these stations! Adaptation Stations: Bird beaks (using tools such as tweezers, tongs, and clothespins to pick up gummy worms and seeds), camouflage (hiding beads on the picture), prickly organisms (using toothpicks to make a prickly “organism”), animal coverings (discussing and placing various fabric samples on pictures of different environments), webbed feet (feeling the difference of tongue depressor “feet”- both webbed and not-in water), scents that attract and repel (using scratch and sniff stickers), claws for digging (wearing claw gloves to dig for insects), and matching cards for adaptations seen in nature to how people copy that adaptation.

Reading Classic is underway at Milford Elementary! Members are reading a variety of books, including several award winners, and then they have the opportunity to take a quiz through Accelerated Reader. Recently, third and fourth graders met to listen to a book on Epic! titled “Alma and How She Got Her Name” and then checked their understanding by taking the quiz. Mrs. Frazier also read aloud an entertaining book titled “This is a Taco.” As students read more books and pass more quizzes, they can earn prizes. There are already many successes to celebrate with only a month into Reading Classic: Students have read and tested over 198 books! They’ve also read over 619,978 words!
