Sharing Our Personal Narratives

Sharing Our Personal Narratives

Phew, we did it! We finished our final drafts of our second personal narratives last Thursday and got to choose our favorite story to share with the class. From brainstorming, creating a graphic organizer, drafting, proofreading, editing, and adding many details, we have learned that the writing process is a lot of work. The hardest part of writing a personal narrative is probably deciding on a "Small Moment." A small moment is not a story about an entire week of vacation or an entire year of school. It is something small that has happened in our lives that we will always remember. Something that we can share with others that can give them a glimpse into our own lives. I enjoy hearing the stories about small moments, because it demonstrates how similar stories can be told in original and creative ways. These kids did a marvelous job of choosing those small moments and it was so fun to hear them share their stories. Sometimes it takes a little courage to share a personal story with peers, but I was proud of them because EVERYONE got up and shared. Yay to all of you! Be sure to share your stories with your families at home, too!

Fire Prevention Week

This week is Fire Prevention Week and CIS students enjoyed visiting with our Chadron Volunteer Fire Department members early Monday morning.  Students got a quick tour of the Rescue Squad.  We also heard about a Fire Plan and what that should look like at our homes.  Students should ask their parents where to go if their house is on fire.  They talked about alternative ways to get out of a house if it is on fire.  They even talked about  Replacing Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years along with replacing batteries every year. Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home fires in half.  Be sure to talk to your children about what to do in case of a fire in your home.

Fireman Zuver showed all the equipment that goes with the gurney!

Firefighters save hearts and homes

Thank you CVFD for all you do!
