The Summer Packet Extravaganza is a reward for those students who complete a math, reading, and writing packet for their grade level. This year the students got to jump in jumping houses, cruise down blow-up slides, joust in a blow-up cage, golf, play basketball, have three-legged races, waltz around numbers to music, and dunk teachers in a dunking tank. It was quite the "Extravaganza". Congratulations to all of those students who worked extremely hard to complete their summer packet!
Denise Ray is the new literacy specialist at Goshen Elementary. She has been going around the classrooms teaching students what it means to use fluency in their reading. Pictured is a student wearing large ears to remind students to use their EARS (Expression, Accuracy, Rate, and Smoothness) while reading.
Goshen Elementary is participating in the Road to Success program again this year. Last year the school set a goal to read 1.5 million minutes. They reached this goal by the end of the year. At an assembly recently Mr. Welburn, the principal, had the students thinking he was a magician when he disappeared behind a curtain and showed up on the other side right away.
The students quickly found out that he is a twin. Not only is the principal a double, but the students will double their reading minutes. The school has set a goal to read 3 million minutes this year.
Goshen students are on their way to their reading goal already!
