In ELA last week, students discovered the fun of poetry. Learning what a poem is good for, our third graders examined a piece by Emily Dickinson about the Sun and his Yellow Plan through creative movement, careful observation, and critical thinking. Students applied what they already knew about figurative language, the plant life cycle, the solar system, force and motion, weather and climate to understand Emily’s poem, then wrote their own weather poems. They had a such a good time, they’re planning to explore a Walt Whitman poem about the stars next week then write their own!

First grade has been learning how to use their five senses just like animals do to survive. Today we used our sense of smell to guess what scent was in each jar. We came up with whether it was edible, or a household item. Some of the smells included, strawberry, vanilla, rubbing alcohol, perfume, peppermint, iodine, vinegar etc. They loved trying to use their nose to guess the smell!
Through a grant from Entergy, the Baton Rouge Zoo is able to offer Project ARK: Animals Reaching Kids program for grades 1st thru 5th for schools. We are so thankful they came out to BRCVPA to introduce some of their animals to our first grade students.
Project ARK, focuses on STEM education. The program offers students hands-on encounters with education animal ambassadors & interactive programming that all compliments the existing science curriculum.
