The Delphos St. John’s Choir went on a “world tour” today. One of their visits was the WTLW TV 44 studio to record their annual Christmas performance. This will be aired on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! Other stops included the local nursing homes where the choir spread their Holiday Cheer to the residents.
Native American Indians introduced popcorn and cranberries to the Pilgrims. Mrs. Holdgreve’s and Mrs. Koverman’s classes took time to study more about these foods.
Here the students watched popcorn pop and dance in vinegar and baking soda water.
After reading about cranberry plants an cranberry bogs, they bounced and measured the cranberries to see which ones were good, fresh cranberries.
Today we celebrated together and gave thanks to God for all of our blessings. The High School and Junior High Choirs sang during mass, Kindergartners sat with their senior friends, many students had various roles to play in the mass, and Father Ron gave a great homily reminding us to be thankful. We wish you a very blessed and safe Thanksgiving!
The first graders at Delphos St. John’s have been hard at work! They read several stories of The Three Little Pigs and discussed the many different literacy elements of each story. They also discussed the importance of using good materials and knowledge when constructing a building. The children used the iPads to research different structural elements and materials. They were excited to use the iPads to discover the fun of literacy and read various versions of The Three Little Pigs. To extend their thinking, the students were then given a STEM challenge where they had to construct a house out of the given materials (straws, popsicle sticks, etc..) that the Big Bad Wolf (or a hair dryer) couldn’t blow down. The students learned a lot about literacy elements, research strategies, and various structural concepts. But, the most fun of all was pretending they were the 3 little pigs and the Big Bad Wolf was trying to blow their houses down!
