Effect of Slavery on the Civil War

Mrs. Herrmann’s Class has been learning about slavery and it’s effect on the Civil War. We learned about the cotton gin and how that invention actually required more slaves to pick cotton. Her students each had a cotton boll (yes, that’s how it’s spelled) and they were painstakingly ginning the cotton bolls by hand. It was quite a chore!

Some of our Wild Cats filling up the Wild Cat board.

When students earn 10 Wild Cat Cash coupons, they can write their name on the board and get an ice cream party with Mrs. Pruitt, or get a token for the prize tower. The cash is given for a plethora of positive actions. It means a lot to students to have their name on one or more times.

Fourth Grade DLI Pioneer Day

4th grade walked to the park and experienced different activities from the pioneers. They learned how to play stick pull, make a doll, sew on a button, weave, tall tales how to hammer in a nail, and how to make a buzz saw. Then they walked back to the school to learn how to line dance and make ice cream.
