Media Center News:  The second nine weeks of school is here.  K-4 students are learning about research in the SSE Media Center.  Media Skill classes will reinforce subject content SSE students are learning in their K-4 classrooms.  Kindergarteners learn the importance of good questions when conducting research.  First graders learn steps of simple research - Plan-Do-Review. Second grade works together as a whole class.  Third and Fourth Graders are writing in incursive handwriting while researching planets and North Carolina History online.  K-4 will use our new 2014 Almanacs, purchased with money raised from this past year's Book Fair.  Our SSE students should be working to improve their reading and writing skills.  Students will begin writing/submitting poems in the Media Center for our "Poetry Contest."  Poems for the contest about "bus safety" and "internet safety" are due 12/5/14.  Parents, please encourage your SSE students to read 20 minutes daily.  Also they can use your help to write letters to out of town family and friends.  Writing letters will help SSE students to prepare for the real world.  Writing will also help students to improve their reading skills.
 
This picture taken by Eileen Gauthier at NCCAT May 2010  Did you know you can use Internet computer games to help children improve their reading skills. A current web site to check out for phonics and phonemic awareness (the ability to comprehend and manipulate individual sounds in spoken words) is: www.starfall.com There are two theories for acquiring reading fluency: one is reading and the other is by hearing others read. A good web site for dramatic reading can be found at www.aaronshep.com/rt/ This site also includes free scripts. Remember to read and comply with copyright information. Time spent listening/helping your child read and write, will benefit your child in all areas of their schoolwork. Reading is an essential life skill in the 21st Century job market. Please help your children to value Education.
