Second Grade Show and Tell

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Students in Kelsie Perrero's class have been bringing their cool pets to show and tell! They have had a bearded dragon named Lucy and two Mississippi Map turtles named Leonardo and Michelangelo come to their class so far. An interesting thing about bearded dragons is that when they get mad their beards puff up. An interesting thing about Mississippi Map turtles is that they live in rivers.

Turkey Trouble in First Grade

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like something different instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him

Fifth Grade Wax Museum

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank Elementary fifth-graders held their wax museum. The students picked a famous person in American history, they did research on that person, memorizing interesting and important facts, and then they got to dress-up like that person for a day. During the day, students from other grades were able to visit the museum and learn about these famous Americans. It was a very fun and educational experience for all that participated.
