The first graders have been working hard to learn their doubles facts in math. We had a lot of fun learning the doubles rap!
Several students began the 2nd quarter by completing a career research project. Each student completed a career aptitude test on the following website https://www.123test.com/
Students then visited a variety of websites including www.getmyfuture.org to research their career interest. Students used a career research worksheet to help them record information. Students learned how much schooling is required, what the working conditions are like, what the average salary would be, and other occupations that are related to the career they selected. Lastly, they viewed a video about the occupation to see the different skills needed for the job, and the type of work they would be doing.
Students in Mrs. Kostal's English III class are studying Edgar Allan Poe as we approach Halloween and are in the midst of "Spooky Season"! This week they read The Tell-Tale Heart and then competed in a Virtual Escape Room to see who would be the first to complete it using knowledge from the story and clues about Poe.
Just a reminder to make sure you have downloaded and are using the Box Tops for Education App. It is free to download and easy to use. When you set up your account, you will choose Diller-Odell Public School, so your earnings will automatically be deposited in our school account. It is easy to scan your receipt and our school is credited with ten cents per box top. It may not seem like a lot, but if we all work together, it adds up! We use the money to purchase equipment that can be used by all elementary students at outdoor and indoor recesses.
If you have box tops that are cut out, please send them to the school by the end of October, as we will be submitting them at that time. Thanks for your continued support of this program!
