Third graders get moving while they study prefixes and suffixes. Research shows that exercise and movement during the day helps students concentrate and learn!
For the first year, Norge has started a Rube Goldberg club! The club meets after school and will enter an international competition for Rube Goldberg Machine designs. This year’s challenge is to open an umbrella.
According to www.rubegoldberg.com, “The Rube Goldberg Machine Contest (RGMC) is an annual international competition that challenges teams of students from middle school to college age to compete in building the most elaborate and hilarious Rube Goldberg Machine. A Rube Goldberg Machine is an overly complex contraption, designed with humor and a narrative, to accomplish a simple task.”
Mrs. Beatty’s fourth grade students work in pairs to complete a problem-solving activity in math class on white boards.

Norge first graders enjoyed a visit from the Toano Station Fire Department to learn about fire safety. Students had a chance to look at the gear the firefighters wear and also learn many of the features of a fire truck! Students even had a chance to walk through the front of a fire truck to see inside.
One of the main things students learned was to “Get out and stay out!”. This emphasized that if they see fire or smoke, they need to evacuate and stay out. Students also learned about the different tools firefighters use, as well as the different jobs they have such as chief and driver. They learned that all of the jobs have to work together as a team to put out a fire.
Thank you Toano Station Firefighters!
