Media Center News:  The third nine weeks of school is here.  For those of you who love books to own:  the School Street School Book Fair is coming!  Scholastic Books will be sold in the Media Center the first week in March.  Parents and students are welcome to make purchases - mornings from March 2 through March 5 from 8:20-11:15 and Friday, March 6 from 9:00 to 11:15.  Parents and students are also welcome to make afternoon purchases Monday, March 2 - Friday, March 6, 2015 from 2:50 - 3:40 and any afternoon Flex-times listed on the weekly schedule below.  Profit from Book Fair sales will be used to purchase books and materials from Scholastic for the SSE library and classroom teachers.  Your participation is appreciated.
K-4 SSE students are learning about research in the Media Center.  Media Skill classes 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.  K-2 students will learn about the African Trickster, Anansi the Spider- Folktales from Africa.  Third and Fourth Graders are writing in incursive handwriting while researching Famous African Americans.  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.   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 school work. Reading is an essential life skill in the 21st Century job market. Please help your children to value Education.
