NINTH GRADE BEHIND THE FIFTH GRADE? by Kim Austin, George Burnette, Ronald Krisel HMrs. O'Connor, will I be able to graduate to the Fifth Grade next year?H was the question asked after three members of the Ninth Grade visited the Fifth Grade and spoke to their teacher, Mrs. McGee. The reason for the question was a fifteen minute class of French taken by the Fifth Grade. The difficulty of it startled me. I saw words I had never laid eyes upon! The members of the class are par-f ticipating in an HArithmetic Race.n It consists of class work only.Every time a student hands in a perfect paper, he may color in a square after his name and put a gold star in the center if it was a test. United States History is another subject of interest. The class begins with Columbus and travels through history until they reach the present. They must also learn to spell and place on a map, all the states of the United States. Another chart upon the wall is a Book List. After a student reads a book on his own, a black star is placed after his name. When a student: has given an oral or written book report, he receives a red star. The most interesting chart is the one entitled HRecess Partners.H The purpose of this chart is to make new friends and see the good qualities in them. Each week a person has a new recess partner who plays with him for one week. Some other activities of the Fifth Grade are meetings with the Sixth Grade for singing on Fridays. Assem- blies have been given on Social Studies, Bird Pictures and Parts of Speech. WORKING IN A TREE HOUSE by Janalee Meyhaus, Don McCarty, Bonnie Nance In the Sixth Grade many interest- ing and unusual things happen. With Mrs. Henry these thirty-one enjoy living in a Htree housen where they not only see the sycamores sprout in the spring and many different kinds of birds, but have fun re- trieving a paper or two that Hacci- dentally flew out the window.n Each year they elect two boys for the daily job of raising and lower- ing the flag. Bruce Larson and Jon Thomas were chosen this year. For this they receive a letter of appreciation at Graduation. Sixth Grade pupils find new exper- iences and new problems: Dancing lessons are given by Mrs. Baker in preparation for the Sixth Grade In- vitational. Next in importance are country reports. They have the privilege of attending a few Junior High assemblies, the Thanksgiving Service, and they celebrate their last Play Day. Here each learns to multiply and divide decimals and fractions.This is seldom accomplished without an occasional noon spent in the room. A sneak preview of history from the first real civilization down to modern times is given. A new world, the world of French, under Mr. Dishian's guidance is entered. In art, under Mrs. Richards, the Sixth Grade makes world globes, masks, and clay figures. In science, under Mr. Richards, they study natural science. In music, helped by Mrs. Purtle, they learn to sing in harmony. Mrs. Jeffries teaches the girls the hula and the boys a stick dance. What a wonderful grade this is! CONTINUED..First Grade they learn rules of spelling, of each vowel, and what each says. This makes the children sound out words. There are no pictures in the Carden book. This helps each pupil to form his own picture in his mind. The students also have a science of animals. They draw pictures of cows in the air or fish in the meadow for the purpose of distinguishing the habits of animals and on what they feed. Once every two weeks, as a reward for corrected workbooks, some students have the privilege of an art period. An occasional party is even allowed.

The method used is that of questions and answers after the reading of power and rate builders. The reader then corrects his work and puts his grade in his record book. There are also listening skills, in which the teacher reads an article to the class. Then the class answers questions about the article. There are only six listen- ing skills, but they are very interesting. In a recent discussion, not only did the class agree that the articles were interesting, but almost everybody has improved his reading in one way or another. We hope that the future Seventh Grade will enjoy it as much as we have. -573 A7 Wfxffl I if three years ago had a record auction, they spent some of the money they obtained on improving their garden. Now, the present Seventh Grade is doing their best to keep the garden up. They cared for the tree that had been injured last summer. It has responded fully to the care, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the garden. We hope the future Seventh Grade will appreciate it as much. OUR FAVORITE ASSEMBLY by Christine Carlson We have had a number of assemblies. Among these were our assembly on astronauts, our ballad assembly, and a few others. Our very favorite one was our Lincoln and Washington Debate. This assembly, under the direction of Mrs. Dlouhy, was in the nature of a debate on Lincoln and Washington. Half the class was ar- guing for Lincoln and the other half for Washington. It took much preparation to get the facts used. When the debate was over, we asked Mr. Nelson to decide which man was the greater. We thought that we would fool him, but he fooled us and made a decision. His decision confirmed that of the class: both men were the greatest of their time. SCIENCE by Van Van Tress and Don Vogel The boys go to science every Monday Wednesday, and Friday. We read a paragraph and then discuss it. Light is one of the subjects we have stud- ied. We have learned about how the light rays can be bent so that all the colors of the spectrum can be seen. Occasionally we see a movie illustrating the unit we are study- ing. After we finish each unit, we report on it.
