1st Grade Class Revisits the 19th Century
Sumter School District has introduced their One-to-Global Initiative in all the schools throughout Sumter Country this year to help infuse classrooms with new technology and innovation. At Oakland , while we have introduced and are currently using new technology Mrs. Hill’s first grade class revisited 19th century technology this week. As part of a literature study on American folk tales her class studied Johnny Apple Seed and as a culminating activity the students got to experiment with apple peelers which were common in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. The students were fascinated and excited by this by this wonderful learning opportunity.
Letterland Arrives at Oakland
The boys and girls at Oakland Primary have started using a new phonics program designed to enhance our rigorous reading curriculum. This program is called Letterland. It won’t be long before your boys and girls start talking about Apple Annie, Bouncing Ben, and Harry Hat. The program is high impact, exciting and incorporates music into every lesson.
