First Grade Quiet as a Mouse DayPublished by angela.killian on Fri, 02/24/2012 - 17:16
The Mt. Loafer Elementary School first grade held its annual “Quiet As A Mouse” Day, on Friday, February 24th.
First grade students were not allowed to talk while in the classroom. Each student communicated by writing to the teacher and other students. Mrs. Bradley, Mrs. Grover, and Mrs. Olsen prepared their day with posters and instructions written out for their students to read, since the teachers were not allowed to talk as well. With no speaking in the classrooms, students could only depend on their reading and writing skills. It was a fun day that encouraged literacy.
