LES Sweet Potato Contest

Classroom Entries

     Sweet potatoes have been around since the prehistoric times and some scientists believe that dinosaurs might have eaten these delicious vegetables. They have been cultivated in the United States for centuries and North Carolina leads all other states in sweet potato production, producing about 40% of the national supply.  
     To promote good nutrition and celebrate National Sweet Potato Month in February, the Lilesville Elementary School Cafeteria hosted a sweet potato decorating contest. Classrooms were provided a sweet potato, the Official Vegetable of the State of North Carolina, and contest rules. Categories included best decorated, most unusual, and looks most like an animal.  
Congratulations to the following classroom winners.

Best Animal
Mrs. Knotts' 3rd Grade Classroom

Most Unusual
Mrs. Belcher's 4th Grade Classroom

Best Decorated

LES Kindergarten Students Celebrate
Being 100 Days Smarter!!!

The Lilesville Elementary School Kindergarten Staff and Students celebrated being 100 days smarter on February 10, 2014. LES Teachers Mrs. Tina Currie and Mrs. Sammi Williams read books about the 100th day theme and planned activities for the day.  The 100th day of school allowed the teachers to provide integrated activities to help child discover and use important math concepts pertaining to 100. As students investigated, read, wrote, discussed, evaluated, and interpreted 100 across the curriculum, they learned how to do several things. This included how to read and write numbers, arrange number in numerical order, skip count by twos, fives, and tens, sort and classify objects, recognize and compare patterns, use "manipulatives" and measuring devices to determine how much and how many, and communicate and interpret math concepts through discussion, writing, illustrations, and models.

LES Teacher Assistants Mrs. Sharon Jones and Ms. Jacki Rivers assisted students with activities for the day including making a 100 piece snack, writing numbers to 100 by 10, painting 100 fingerprints, jumping for 100 seconds, playing with 100 balloons for 100 seconds, and popping 100 balloons. 

The LES Kindergarten Students also worked to complete 100 acts of kindness during the day and a heart tree was decorated showing the acts.  At the end of the day, the students enjoyed cupcakes and a juice to complete their celebration!

Forces and Motion at Planetarium

Fifth grade students recently visited the Rotary Planetarium to engage in activities related to their current unit of forces and motion.  While there, they built and launched model rockets, balanced twelve nails on one nail, and stood on top of a dozen eggs.

LES Field Trip!

Fourth Grade students recently visited the Town Creek Indian Mound in Mt. Gilead, North Carolina. They toured the Indian Mound after completing a unit of study in Social Studies about Native Americans that inhabited the lands of North Carolina and how different ethnic groups have influenced culture, customs, and the history of North Carolina. The students were able to visit the Meeting House and burial grounds, and watched demonstrations about hunting tools used in years past by North Carolina Native Americans. The students also participated in creating a piece of pinched pottery to take home with them. Shown here are Fourth Grade students accompanied by teachers Ms. Monica Currie, Mr. Thomas Martin, Mrs. Sharon Belcher, and Teacher Assistant and Bus Driver Ms. Jacki Rivers.

Positively Electrifying!

Students in fourth grade recently finished a unit on electromagnets. The students participated in an experiment where they created an electromagnet with a battery, nail, copper wire, paper clips, and a battery cell. Research was done to see how to make the magnet stronger using different materials. The strength was determined by how many paper clips were able to be picked up with the electromagnet.
It was positively electrifying!

              Rotary Planetarium Visit
                    Dissecting Frogs!

Fifth grade students visited the planeterium and participated in many activities 
related to their unit on ecosystems. They looked at animal specimens and tried to
guess what ecosystem or biome they were from. They played ecosystems bingo
and built three different ecosystems to take back and observe in their classroom.
The students especially enjoyed the frog dissection part of the  visit. They looked
at the body systems of the frog and how it is adapted to a particular biome or ecosystem.

Bright Star Touring Theatre, a national professional touring theatre company based in 
Asheville, NC, visited Lilesville Elementary School with their acclaimed production of Professor Parsnip’s Lab of Healthy Choices. This presentation had Wacky Professor Parsnip taking the audience on an adventure through science, teaching lessons on making good choices in diet, exercise, and environment along the way.
