The Body Systems

Today we enjoyed a performance of the different systems that help our bodies function. Each presenter came up with a gesture and sound to help us to remember the role of the organs within each system.

Human Body

In the elementary classroom,  the students are in their second week researching the Human Body.  The teachers have observed the students’ excitement about this topic and their thirst to learn more.

Karlie, Taye, Elena, Rachel, Konrad, Leo, Maggie, Kaylee, Matthew, Nora, Marley, and Konrad have researched the body systems and have created a visual for each.  Below are the six:
1) Nervous system
2) Skeletal system
3) Muscular system
4) Circulatory system
5) Digestive system
6) Respiratory system

Kindergarten through 2nd grade students have explored through songs and research the five senses, what they know about inside the body, and what our bodies can do.  This week they will be exploring and researching the systems of the body after they listen to the other group present on the six body systems. IMG_6832.JPG

Students are leading the research and will be able to dive deep into an area of the Human body that interests them.  They will follow the inquiry process by asking questions, finding reliable research, taking notes, and creating a visual.  Their final project will be announced in the short future.IMG_6841.JPG

Doctor’s Office

This week in preschool we began our unit on doctors! Our preschool teachers modeled how to play appropriately in the dramatic play area — Ms. Jennifer was the patient and had a bad cough. Ms. Taylor was the doctor and discussed how to use the various tools and forms and also discussed what kinds of questions the doctor may ask their patients.

Students were eager to take on different roles as a doctor, nurse, patient, family member, and receptionist.

Preschool Fire Department to the Rescue

Last week, after viewing a performance about fire safety by TRYPS Children’s Theatre, the students took on the role of firefighters. To begin, we brainstormed various ways to build our fire truck — we ultimately decided using our ‘outside’ blocks would be most appropriate!

The first step in creating a fire truck was to build a rectangle!

As we took the blocks out of the closet, we came across some cube blocks — the students thought those would make good chairs!

The fire truck is complete.

“These long blocks can be the fire hose, and this blue block can be the water!”

Next, we needed a fire to put out. The students decided they were going to pretend like the red play house was on fire! We had a few of the students pretend to be the family that was stuck in the fire. After the fire fighters rescued them, they found their meeting place at the fence!

Uh oh! Now the “castle is on fire!” We must save the Royal family. Their meeting place is by the tree.

To conclude, the students wanted to put a fire out in one of the classrooms. They pretended to be sleeping when the bell rang at the fire house.

Fire Safety

Today, TRYPS came to SCCS for Fire Prevention Week! They performed for the preschool and elementary students. The actors were dressed as Frozen characters and sang several songs. These songs explained how important it was to make sure your smoke detectors work, what to do if you hear your smoke detector go off, to have two ways to exit your house, and to have a meeting place!

Your child was given homework by the Battalion Fire Chief! Each child is to meet with his/her family and check the smoke detectors, find 2 exits, and find a meeting place in the event of a fire!

Fabulous Friday

What a wonderful way to end our week! In the morning the Juniors came in and read several books by famous children’s authors in small groups. They shared facts about the authors’ lives, style of writing and famous works. Some of these authors include Anthony Browne, Eve Bunting, Patricia Polacco and Cynthia Rylant. We encourage you to look for their works at the library!
