7:00 PM - 11:59 PM District Art Show
On Saturday, March 22, the Clover School District will be asking taxpayers to approve a $67 million bond package that will provide for present and future needs of our students that will ensure CSD remains one of the best school systems in SC. The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on the proposed bond and all of its components. This meeting will be held at 6:00 pm on February 27th at Crowders Creek School in the cafeteria prior to the PTA meeting and PreK/K Math Night.
Second graders have recently learned about procedural writing. Procedural writing is writing in steps often times accompanied with photographs or drawings. During shared reading, second grade classrooms read a story called "Presenting: Amazing Magnets" which was a procedural text about making a puppet show using magnets. To demonstrate their understanding of procedural text, students were asked to create a snowman at home with their families and write a procedural book about it. Pictured here are some of the snowmen created from Mrs. Love's classroom.
Second graders at Crowders Creek have been busy becoming scientists. Students in Mrs. Kaser’s class have been participating in one of Lucy Calkin’s writing units which revolves around creating experiments and writing lab reports. Students have learned that writing like a scientist involves planning, predicting, recording, and sharing. To start the unit, teachers performed an experiment for students to observe and write a lab report on together. The next step was for students to modify the teacher’s experiment. Some students added components while others took away or changed components. In the end, students were able to produce their own lab report highlighting the improved experiment. Not only did this unit get students excited about writing, but it enhanced their love of science!
