On May 8, the Lincolnview Lancer first-graders went to the Fort Wayne Zoo! They had fun learning about the animals, their characteristics, and habitats. Some of the students’ favorite zoo animals were the monkeys, red pandas, and the snakes! Shown above are three of teacher Kris Tow’s students: Brody Collins, Leo Mueller, and Landen Hurless.

The rolls include: forward roll, egg roll, parachute roll, and log roll. The types of travels include: skip, hop, jump, and leap. Pictured practicing their gymnastics routine include fourth grade students Brooklyn Byrne, Sophia Brickner, Bosten Bailey, Aubrey Miller, and Josie Miller.

The first and second grade musical was performed this past Thursday night. The musical was titled ”The Bremen Town Jam.” Jen Slusher, Lincolnview elementary music teacher, had students performing at their best. These students put in a lot of hard work to remember their lines and the songs they had to sing. The audience was treated to an amazing performance.

Students spent time buddy reading the story of the week. They went on a word hunt for sight words and “short u” words. They were able to spend time discussing the story, finding the main idea and details and their favorite parts of the story.

“Can I work alone on this?” is a question that one might often hear in the classroom setting. Is it meaningful to work in a group or is group work only good for giving students the opportunity to talk with their peers? The students in fourth grade math give a resounding, “Yes!” to both of those questions.

Working together with peers is worthwhile as it allows students to not only give ideas to the group, but it also gives each student the opportunity to defend their answer, if needed, which is a very important skill to develop not only in math, but in life. Working in a group setting also provides the students the time to reflect upon their own thinking and deciding whether it is correct or incorrect, which is another important skill to learn in school and in the real world.

So when the question, “Can I work alone on this?” surfaces, we feel, in fourth grade math, that you may certainly work alone, but it can also be very beneficial to collaborate with a peer.

Author Loren Long visited Lincolnview Elementary on Thursday, October 18, to talk to the students about his experiences being an author and illustrator. Mr. Long talked with the students about his famous “Otis” book series and his latest book The Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake. Students had an opportunity to speak with Mr. Long and get books signed. Mr. Long’s visit was sponsored by the Lincolnview Parent Teacher Club.

In fifth grade social studies, students are learning about American Indians’ unique cultures and ways of life. Students have been collaborating in groups to create a dodecahedron focusing on culture, shelter, artifacts, landforms, natural resources, and adaptations to the environment. The fifth graders have enjoyed working together, writing, researching, and being creative and are excited to present to their peers. Mrs. Kris Tow and Mrs. Jill Cockerell’s co-taught first graders are busy learning all about rain forests. Each student selected a creature found in the rain forest to conduct research on using their chrome books. They will be using the Expanded Expression Tool to write fascinating facts to present to their classmates. The lesson will culminate with a colorful art display depicting the rain forest.

Lindsey Litzenberg’s homeroom just finished reading Wonder in class, and accepted the Choose Kind Challenge. Wonder centers on the power of kind acts, meaningful peer connections, and strong adult mentors through the eyes of a fifth grader, Auggie Pullman, who is venturing into school with an exceptional challenge.

The sixth grade students created over 25 letters and cards that will be distributed to local nursing homes to help spread cheer and kindness. They are showing that their deeds are their monuments.

Jen Slusher’s kindergarten students are working on learning about high and low sounds in music class. Here the students are playing xylophones to a story about a painter. The kids play high sounds when the painter is painting high and low sounds when the painter is painting low to tell the story. The students also learned that big objects make low sounds and small objects make high sounds.
