Biographies at EJE

The 2nd grade classes at East Jones Elementary just completed a unit of study on “Biographies”.  The students learned that a biography is a true story about someone written by another person.  They learned many interesting facts about various people.  As a final project the students chose one person to research and make a presentation to share with the class.  The students really enjoyed researching, learning, and presenting their projects.  We even had a few “special guests” to make an appearance including; Sitting Bull, Jean LaFitte, Florence Nightingale, Walt Disney, Jackie Robinson, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Michael Oher, Paula Deen, John Wayne, Ms. John Wayne,  Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Elvis Presley

3rd grade students at East Jones Elementary are participating in Bonnie plants’ 3rd Grade Cabbage Program this year. Earlier this month, each student received a cabbage plant to take home and nurture. A growth journal accompanied each plant so the students could keep track of their plant’s growth. The data from this journal will be used in the science and math classes in order for students to apply the skills they have learned. Students will practice their English / Language Arts skills by reading and researching information on planting, growing, harvesting, and preparing cabbages. The largest cabbages grown will be entered into Bonnie Plants’ competition for a chance to win a $1,000 educational scholarship. There will be one winner from each homeroom selected. Check back in September to see who grew the five COLOSSAL CABBAGES!
