Brockbank Third-Graders and Kindergarteners Work Together

Submitted by brenda.johnson on
Third-grade students in Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, once a week, go into Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten class and help the students. Each kindergarten student gets a third-grade buddy to work with, whether it be reading to each other, practicing flash cards, or just helping the student with whatever they are working on. Whenever there is a holiday, or at least once a month, the students get to do a fun activity together. One fun activity is they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy.

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank Elementary first-graders celebrated the holiday season by having a Polar Express Day on Tuesday, December 19. They earned this day by meeting their classroom reading goals. Each first-grade class had to fill their Polar Express train car and in order to accomplish this, each student had to read at least six books. As a reward for meeting this goal, students got to wear pajamas to school; make Polar Express trains out of HoHo's, starlight mints, and chocolate bells; make engineer hats out of paper. That afternoon they got to watch the movie, "Polar Express".

Brockbank third-grade students all through the month of December filled the halls of the school with cheery Christmas music. On Thursday, December 14, the third-grade classes put on a Christmas program for the rest of the students and then that evening for their parents and families to enjoy. It is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit. The students did a great job!
