THE GREAT MAIL RACE

Fulton Science Academy private school great mail race

 

As part of a social studies (U.S. geography) and language arts (letter writing) collaborative project, the fourth and fifth grade classes of FSAPS are participating in the national Great Mail Race! Each student wrote a friendly letter to one or more fourth or fifth grade classes in different states around the country. Students were assigned states via a raffle process, and each student wrote 2-4 letters to one school of their choice in each of their assigned states.

We will be keeping track of the replies we receive by pinning them onto a large map of the United States, and we hope to receive at least one reply from each of the fifty states before the school year ends!

FSAPS CELEBRATES Dr. SEUSS’ BIRTHDAY!

Fulton Science Academy private school dr. seuss' birthday!

 

This past Friday, March 6th FSAPS celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! Every student from Pre-K through 8th grade entered the school to special surprises to celebrate the day. Thing 1 and Thing 2 greeted middle school students who dressed up with a hat, bow tie to decorate, and special treat (because you’re never too old for a little Seuss). Everyone who was dressed in black received a set of whiskers, red and white striped hat, and black nose on their faces to be “The Cat in the Hat.” By the end of 1st period we had an entire school of Cat in the Hats!!

Elementary students enjoyed an afternoon-long journey through the wonderfully wacky world of Dr. Seuss’ most famous stories. Students rotated through all the elementary classrooms, collecting Dr. Seuss themed prizes to put in their goodie bags, hearing a story, and then completing activities based on the book they just heard.

After listening to Bartholomew and the Oobleck, students used Elmer’s glue, Borax, food coloring, and water to concoct their own gooey Oobleck. The reading of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish preceded the measuring activity geared towards creating Dr. Seuss “Silly Soup.” The imaginative illustrations of The Lorax served as inspiration for some very creative art projects. The Foot Book got the students moving with some fun games inspired by this classic story. Finally, students enjoyed cooking projects and language arts activities following the story Green Eggs and Ham.
