10th grade Missionary Tea Party

Mrs. Brewer's English II classes have wrapped up reading and studying To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. While published in 1960, the book is set during 1933-35. A proper missionary tea was prepared using the same menus from that time period set in the Deep South. Mrs. Brewer's home ec students prepared a Robert E. Lee Cake (a frosted layer sponge cake with lemon/orange filling), a Lane Cake (a layered sponge cake with 7 minute frosting and a nut and fruit filling), egg salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, and ambrosia salad. Ms. Hopkins prepared tea cakes and open-faced radish sandwiches. Tea and lemonade were also served. Each table had a variety of comic strips, newspaper headlines, and news articles from the year 1932. Mr. Shaw and Ms. Hopkins shared some of the local history of Fannin County from that time period. Students enjoyed the tea, were so well behaved, and very appreciative in expressing their thanks. A photo keepsake favor was provided for students who attended the tea.

Ms. William's 4th grade students had a lively experience with a Seusstastical Mystery in the library on April 4th, 2017. Upon arrival, students observed the crime scene and the 4 suspects in a lineup. After hearing each suspect's alibi, students spent time examining and taking notes of the physical evidence and reviewing the alibis. They had to prove who was guilty (or maybe who was innocent).

Mrs. Haggard's 5th grade students participated in a Seusstastical Mystery in the library on March 23, 2017. As students arrived, they observed a crime scene roped off with evidence on the floor. The four suspects gave their alibis and then the students divided into two groups--one group was able to closely examine the evidence (without touching or moving it) while the other group reviewed the alibis. Students took notes, highlighted key phrases in the alibis, and built their case of evidence to help them decide who was the most likely suspect.

Mrs. Amlin's 6th grade classes enjoyed a genre book tasting in the library on February 23rd & 24th where they sampled books from these fiction genres: Adventure, Epistolary, Fable, Mystery, Realistic, and Tall Tale. As students rotated through the tables by reading and previewing books, they had treat bags filled with snacks at each table. Students were asked to keep an open mind about the genres as they might encounter some they've never read before. They excitedly found new books to read and discovered they enjoyed some genres they'd never considered reading.

4th Grade Nonfiction Book Tasting

Ms. William's 4th grade classes enjoyed a nonfiction book tasting in the library on February 14th where they sampled books from these sections: 400 (Language), 500 (Natural Science & Math), 600 (Technology & Applied Science, 700 (the Arts), 800 (Literature & Poetry), and 900 (Geography & History). As students rotated through the tables by reading and previewing books, they also had a treat bag filled goodies at each table. Students loved exploring the different categories of nonfiction and were surprised it didn't consist of books just about animals, cars, and graphic novels (their faves). At the end of the tasting, students selected a favorite category and chose a book to check out. Thanks to, Mrs. Mitchell, for assisting Ms. Williams!

SR 3rd Grade Math Book Tasting

Mrs. Shastid's class enjoyed a math book tasting in the library on February 20th where they sampled a little multiplication, division, problem solving, and famous mathematicians. As students rotated through the tables by reading and previewing books, they also had a bag filled with different goodies at each table. Students were delightfully surprised to realize that there are books in the nonfiction section of the library that deal with math which are fun and interesting. At the end of the tasting, students selected a book to check out which was easy for them to do...the hard part was deciding which one because they'd discovered that quite a few of the books were so interesting!
