I]KINS (OKLA.) JOURRNAL THURS., DECEMBER 7, 1967 I " Sch'" '" 0o'! News SETTING THE PROPER ENVIRONMENT Parents often ask educators vchat can we do as parents to help our child develop the read- ing habit and how can we help with his homework? Teaching by example is still one of the best ways that child- ren learn. Only rarely will a child develop an interest in read- ing on his own. Like most other subjects it needs to be taught. If parents read and have a wide variety of books and mat- erials available at home then the chance of their children pick- Jng up the habit is certainly enhanced. A time, place and pro)er environment needs to be established to make it possible for the child to be able to react if he so desires. It is very diff- icult to read if the T.V. is going, proper lighting not available and/or the lack of reading mat- erials. All T.V. is certainly not bad. Certain regular shows and special documentaries are rec- ommended by educators. I would suggest that parents check the T.V. guide each Sunday for lhe coming week's specials with good educational values and make special notation so that they will not be missed. Contrary to popular belief parents can help with homework. I suggest that parent and chilc establish a definite time to do homework and stick to this rule as close as possible to develop the "habit." It is always best to do homework as soon as poss- ible after it has been assigned for the following reasons. (1) So that the student will not for- =1 get how to do the assigned work. (2) To keep from having to stay up late and missing sleep. (3) To keep from having to be deprived of family life in the evening when the family is all home together. (4) So that it will not be nee- essary to hurry and cause care- less errors. Concerning how much home- work and at what age homework should be started is sometimes controversial. Research has found that there is little value in homework below the fourth grade. In the fourth grade it should be limited to perhaps 30 minutes an evening, increasing to possibly an hour by the sixth grade with no assignments on Fridays or holidays. DONALD FRIESEN FOURTH GRADE Mrs. Hardesty The fourth grade boys and girls were happy to return to school after a nice Thanks- giving vacation. In Language we are study- ing about singular possessive and plural possessive nouns. They are giving us a little trou- ble but by a lot of practice we hope to master them. In arithmetic we are working on addition and subtraction. We are learning how subtraction, undoes addition (or is the in- verse of addition). One group and division. Our unit in Science is about The Travels of a Drop of Wa- ter. Two of our class members BuL Washer_Add a Matching Gas Drye__r A new gas dryer takes the work out of washday.., gives you extra hours. Now enjoy the convenience of dependable gas dry- ing for as tithe as $2.94 a month more than the cost of the washer a/one! Your p.articipating gas appliance dealer can show you how it's done. FIVE REASONS WHY IT PAYS TO CHOOSE A GAS DRYER 1, GAS DRYERS COST LESS TO OPERATE. Gas still dries your clothes for less than a penny a load, Five times less than other automatic dryers 2, GAS DRIES FASTER. Goes to work without any delay for "warm-up". Gas dries clothes in any weather . , at any time of the day or night. 3. GAS DRYING SAVES CLOTHES. Colors stay brighter. Fabrics last longer. Less clothing and linens needed. .4, GAS DRYING KEEPS THE "PERMANENT" in )ermannt press. Guards new wonder fabrics with safe, low F $2.94 A MONTH WHEN 'YOU COtBtNE IT WITH THE PURCHASE , OF A NEW AUTQMATIC WATHERI will do an "Investigation into a Disappearing Drop of Water." This was to be done on Friday' but we needed the sunshine to perform the investigation. We hope to do it Monday. We have redecorated our bull- etin board. The captain; "Let's Be A Book Worm." Below the caption is a large green worm and several book jackets with interesting titles for fourth grade pupils. We hope to en- courage all our boys and girls to do more reading. FIFTH GRADE Most of us are looking for- ward to the close of our unit on division. Fractions come next. and we think we will en- joy a change of pace. Since we are doing more and more reading for information, we find we need to learn to ad- just our way of reading. We have been discussing S Q R in our reading. This is the sur- vey, question, read method. We find it helps us especially in social studies and in science, and also in reading to answer ques- tions. Our salt-and-flour maps are progressing nicely. We have decided the project can be ex- tended to include our study! of the westward expansion of the United States. The trails used by the pioneers can be traced on our maps. "Building blocks of living things" is the title of the next unit in our science books. A quick over-view of the unit tells us that we will study cells and their structure and functions. Making models of cells promis- es to be an interesting activity. Several boys and' girls have clever suggestions for Christmas decorations. With that time approaching, we are ready to start work on the decorations so we will be able to enjoy them before the holiday. SIXTH GRADE Mrs. Holsinger We have just elected officers for December. They are as fol- lows; Christene Hunt, Presi- dent; Robert Burns, Vice Presi- dent; Marolyn Harral, Secre- tary; Rodney Bostian, Room Manager; Charlene Grant, Girl of the Month; Forest Welch, Boy of the Month; and Pat Stoecker, Librarian. in Math we have been review- ing over fractions, multiplication, and division. We have been studying about bacteria in Science. Some of,us have given reports. In Reading we have been learning how to outline. We have learned to pick out the main topic, sub topic and de- tails. We have learned how to pick out the topic sentence of a paragraph. This has helped us in Language because we have written paragraphs on our pets and paragraphs using words which appeal to our senses.
