The kindergartners got a special treat last Friday: Mrs. Miller came to enhance their study the butterfly life cycle through art.
They had a great time!
To echo Rhylee's exclamation when the
final product was revealed,
"Mrs. Miller! You are amazing!"
Barn Hill Preserve's FREE mobile program consists of one, 45-minute oral presentation on our LIVE animal ambassadors. Our program offers students the unique experience to get up close and personal with animals they may have never seen before! Students participate by asking questions, getting involved in demonstrations, and responding to the speaker, making our program both educational and entertaining!
Our enthusiastic public speakers tailor the presentation to the age of their audience and regularly present to students preK - 12th grade.
Pre-K, K, 1st, and 2nd 12:00 - 12:20
3rd, 4th, & 5th Grade 12:45 - 1:10
We have gotten lots of questions from the students about what a sock hop is, what the 50's were like, and if it is ok to wear only socks and no shoes. Ha!
Mrs. Sandifer has introduced the 50's dances in her classroom, and we will have videos of popular 50's dances playing along with the music. Just to be clear: all students must wear shoes for safety reasons! :)
We are looking forward to a great dance Friday, and to seeing the kids all dressed up in their 50's-themed attire!
PreK has been studying what makes our state great! They culminated their 3 week study of Louisiana's animals, food, and folktales with a Fun Festival. Mr. Fuller played Cajun music on the fiddle, Ms. Wilson told the Cajun tale of Petite Rouge, students sang LA songs and poems, and crawfish were raced! Parents, thank you for all of the homemade and local cuisine that you brought to go along with the boiled crawfish. Your little ones are our state's greatest resource!
Two of our favorite Allisons were captured in a picture by the LSU Reveille at the Friends of the Libraries Book Bazaar!

Also, thank you to Community Coffee for supporting our local schools.
