March 7, 2016 - March 11, 2016

 It was a Seusstastical Week!

On Tuesday, March 2nd we celebrated Read Across America in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. Classrooms all around the country celebrate with a day filled of reading and activities.  Here at Bacon, we went all out!  Check out some of the pictures from around the school celebrating Read Across America Day!

Saying GoodBye to Dr. Cook

On Friday, March 4 we said good-bye to Dr. Cook.  Bacon School will miss him terribly, but we are always moving forward and growing!  Here is a farewell video to honor all the work that Dr. Cook did in his 5 years at Bacon School.  Good luck at Lakeside!

This week provided us an opportunity to leap into the future with fourth grade.  Mrs. Gandy and Mrs. Muhlbaier have been working with their students researching and writing to their dream college.  A few students wrote to Cumberland County College and received a special visit from the College President, Athletic Directors, Academic Advisor and a former Millville Alumni basketball player.  The college staff talked with both classes.  The message they sent was very clear, to keep working hard and pursuing their dreams of going to college.  Along with Cumberland County College, the fourth grade have received a lot of swag from other colleges along with letters.  The class of 2024 seems determined and focused.      



On Thursday, Mrs. Bingham’s class invited me in to read for Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.  Mrs. Bingham had spent the entire week teaching to the class about Dr. Seuss.  The class was able to share with me their favorite story that he has written and some of the fun activities they have done.  I read to them, “Hop on Pop.”  Mrs. Bingham’s students were really engaged with the whole theme of Dr. Seuss and dressed up as Thing 1 – 18.  

In preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, I was invited to work with Ms. Anton’s class during Math centers.  During the time, I was able to work with two groups on matching number cards to pictures that corresponded.  The other activity had students place cards in order from 1-20.  We added a one-minute timer for an extra challenge.  Overall, the two groups worked extremely hard and by the end of the centers seemed to have the concepts mastered.  Ms. Anton and Mrs. Banker also had students working with them.  Ms. Anton was working with students on recognizing pennies and quarters.  Mrs. Banker had students building numbers in the teens with tens and ones blocks.  Look out Bacon, the students in room 22 are becoming Mathematicians.
