We have just had our annual CCE Variety Show and are very proud of all of our very talented performers. The fifth grade Honors Chorus participated in the All-County Concert on February 20th. We are learning patriotic songs and studying the instruments of the orchestra in music class this quarter. K-3 are playing many percussion instruments while Fourth and Fifth grades are practicing their musical skills playing a woodwind instrument, the recorder. Music and PE are collaborating on a project learning about musical form using a parachute and Star Wars music.
I will be covering "PowerPoints/Canva/Prezzi etc plus working on a fifth grade social media project. We will also be working with GreenScreen projects.
In the Media Center, our goal is for students to become “Thinkers” by being effective and independent users of ideas and information. Students will achieve this goal by working on a variety of literature and research projects in alignment with the North Carolina Media/Technology Essential Standards. The Media/Technology curriculum focuses on developing research skills using both print and electronic resources, learning how to use the Media Center to find books and materials, and creating an appreciation for various types of literature.
The Coddle Creek Elementary Media Center collection contains over 14,000 books and materials making it one of the largest elementary collections in the Iredell/Statesville District. Resources can be checked out by the students and staff at any time during the academic day.
We are in the middle of Jump Rope for Heart for the next 3 weeks. We are jumping rope in class, and students have the ability to get sponsored donations for that, that will go to the American Heart Association.
All students are learning how to use a variety of materials and techniques to create their art. Our younger students are paper weaving, yarn painting, and making pinch pot bells. Our older grades have been creating art based on Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, and ancient Egyptian gods. They have been using clay, tooling foil, and yarn. Our 5th grade students are using recycled materials to create two large bottle cap murals. Several of our students had their artwork displayed at the county "Superintendent's Art Show".
