Fire Prevention Month

Fire Prevention MonthMrs. Dickey's Class
Making a plan for fire safety at home is very important! Fourth graders were instructed to go home and talk to their families about what they need to do in the case of a fire. I think the students' favorite part was trying on the fire gear. We all looked and walked a little silly! Thanks to the Chadron Fire Department for volunteering your time to visit and for all you have done for our community!

Reptiles and Writing

Mrs. Piercy's ClassroomStudents at CIS enjoyed a visit from author David Nieves.  He shared his knowledge of reptiles with the students and talked about why it is important to share what we know with others.  He talked about the Six Traits of Writing and how to take a broad idea and narrow it down to a topic that is manageable.  He told students that when they add their own voice to their writing, they make it fun for others to read.  Students enjoyed listening to his stories and seeing his interesting reptiles.
