Tracy Bowser's kindergarten class read "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" by Carol McCloud, illustrated by David Messing. They talked about how each person has an invisible bucket they carry around. During the day, they fill their buckets by saying or doing something nice to others and when they do the same. To understand this, they carry around a cup filled with 20 chips. Students then say nice things to other and place a chip in his her cup. Students get excited to give and receive a chip from a friend.
The students from team A (Megan Harper, Cindy Gaines, Lori Gasparik, and Holly Power) had a “royal” visit from Miss. Liberty, our Constitution Queen, Madi Gasparik. Miss Liberty read a story to the students about the Constitution. The students watched a video and made American flags along with listening to the story to celebrate Constitution Day. #RepthatA
MR. CALFEE PRESENTS CURIOUS GEORGE!!! Our principal Tim Calfee started a tradition four years ago to visit each kindergarten classroom and read the story Curious George to the students. This year, he thought outside the box and added a cool feature to the story. Tim Calfee has a hidden talent that the team did not know about which is he is a balloon artist. So he decided to use balloons to create a Curious George character to go with the story. The students and staff were so amazed at what he could do. This tradition along with others is what makes learning exciting and fun at AELS!!! We are grateful for our principal!
