First and Fourth Build Lasting Friendships Through Reading!

Submitted by courtney.corbin on Mon, 09/29/2014 - 09:32
Fourth graders at Taylor Elementary have been working hard on remembering what their E.A.R.S. are for...reading out loud! Reading with Expression, Accuracy, Rate and Smoothness are things that a good reader does when they're reading aloud. Each Friday, Mrs. Corbin, Mrs. Grill and Mrs. Tracy's classes have the chance to show off their skills by reading to the three first grade classes. This is a fun opportunity for both grades to look forward to because it gives them a chance to practice reading, make new friends, and learn from each other.

Taylor's Amazing Art Gallery

S.E.P. night was recently held at Taylor Elementary. Not only was this a chance for students and parents to sit down with their teacher and discuss progress, goals and accomplishments, but an amazing art gallery was showcased as well. Mrs. Patten, Taylor's talented art teacher, transformed her classroom into an art gallery that displayed student work throughout the term. This was a favorite for many to visit because students were able to show off the talents they've been developing in visual arts.
