Seventh grade students came over to visit our Kindergarten classes and do some reading the last week of school. Our students get so excited with having the "big kids" come visit and it is so fun to see our former students doing so well. Thank you Kathy Smith for helping coordinate this activity!
The second grade classes recently completed their Bare Books. These books were a culmination of everything they have learned in Reading and Language. The students were quite creative with character development, writing techniques, and illustrations. This past week the 2nd graders were able to share their books with the kindergarten classes and all of the children were quite excited to be a part of this time!
This week Team Hoffman and Team Landreth paired up to become computer programmers! Using a program called Kodable, students worked on problem solving, directionality, and teamwork. By using programming language and putting our codes in sequence, our programmers were very successful and engaged!

Chadron Garden Club donated a tree to Chadron Primary School and got some assistance in planting the tree from Mrs. Cogdill's 2nd Grade Class. Susan Vastine (Garden Club Member) brought the tree Friday morning and taught the students about planting and care of the new tree. The students did a nice job of digging, planting, mulching, and watering our new tree and are anxious to continue to care for it. Thank you Chadron Garden Club and Susan for your donation and time!

Our Chadron Primary 2nd graders went over to Chadron Intermediate for their "Bump Up" Day and were very excited for what is to come. The third grade teachers, students, and Mr. Cogdill were very welcoming and our students had many of their questions answered. It is always a nice way to bridge the two buildings and we wish our students well as they move on to 3rd grade.

The second graders at Chadron Primary hosted a multicultural event this last week as a culminating activity to their multicultural project. The students in each of the four classrooms split into groups and researched various countries. They created tri-fold presentations including postcards, important information about the countries, and landmarks as well as salt dough maps of the countries. The students also brought food from the various countries and enjoyed trying different cuisine.
Chadron Primary would like to extend a HUGE thank you to coach Jeff Larson and members of the CSC Football Team. They took many hours out of their busy college schedules to volunteer in our Kindergarten Read Naturally Lab. They had so much fun they often came to school early to visit recess. Mrs. Hoffman and her Reading group celebrated these volunteers with an electronic book the students helped to create and donuts!! Thank you again volunteers!
International Field Trip without Leaving the Building
The second graders helped create an international travel experience for first graders within our building. Working in groups, second graders were assigned a country and conducted research. There was a lot that went into the researching. Students asked questions and located answers. Students looked for information about language, clothing, food, holidays, the national flag and other interesting facts. Their final projects consisted of a tri-fold display and salt dough maps.
