The Exeter-Milligan sixth grade class is a busy place. This group of seven boys and four girls has really meshed together this year, according to their teacher Mrs. Allison Brahm.
The class has lots of projects going on right now including a science unit learning about embryos and in conjunction with the unit they are hatching chickens and ducks in the classroom. The sixth graders are also participating in the DARE program and will have their graduation on May 7th.
Currently they are using the EverFi Vault program sponsored jointly by Famers and Merchants Bank in Milligan and Generations Bank in Exeter. It is a financial program that teaches the kids the value of money and how to make responsible choices.
The class starts each morning by saying the Pledge of Allegiance and entering their homework and other information into Class Dojo. From there they get right into the three r’s – spending time in reading, spelling and math. Recess is next and then lunch before they had to an afternoon which includes language, science social studies and writing along with their “specials” which include library, band, music and p.e.
Brahm has enjoyed this group of students, “They are all so different, but have come together and become great friends. I love that they work hard and always try their best. They love to learn and do projects and experiments.
Coming the students are looking forward to their eggs hatching this week along with DARE graduation, Field Day on May 8th and their field trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo on May 14th.
