Snowman Sweets is in full swing this week at Poplin!
The annual tradition of Snowman Sweets is in full swing at Poplin Elementary this week. First grade students have been learning about economics in Social Studies class. To go along with this unit, students have been making and selling “Snowman Sweets.” A Snowman Sweet is a candy gram that students can buy for their friends for only $0.25 each.
Students began by exploring how families have needs and wants. Students learned how jobs help people meet their needs and wants. Then it was time to put what students have learned into action with the Snowman Sweets project.
From Kindergarten to College: Parent to Kids Grant Program
The “From Kindergarten to College: Parent to Kids Program” came to a conclusion this past Tuesday, November 19, 2013. It was a five-week program offered to a few kindergarten families to learn strategies to use at home with children in the areas of reading and writing. Each week families participated in discussion and activities with the children to support their growth in reading and writing.
Cheryl Tresher, a Kindergarten Teacher, received a $500 grant at the end of the 2012-2013 school year from the Union County Education Foundation. The grant covered the expense of each child receiving a book weekly and then a basket full of literacy items to be used at home to build literacy at the conclusion of the program.
