Union County is becoming diverse and global. Here at Antioch Elementary there is an increasing number of languages and cultural backgrounds within our school community. The teachers at Antioch seek to educate our students through pen pal programs, internet exchanges including Skype, special guest presenters and storytellers, and through meaningful curriculum connections with other cultures.
Kindergartners at Antioch have revisited life cycles with the sensory opportunities available in Spring. They have explored plants and insects. Some of the concepts they learned about were adult animals and their babies. Students used their creative intelligences constructing model Caterpillars and planting Zinnias. They played with toy animals and their young. The experience was rich with literature and provisions.
Local Storyteller Janice Davin visited Antioch on Tuesday, May 17 to tell folktales from the Appalachian Mountains, American tall tales, and stories from around the world. All Gators in grades Kindergarten through the fifth grade were entertained with her tales of whimsy and wonder. She also visited Mrs. Alden’s first grade class, who won Antioch’s March Reading Madness competition and led the students in an interactive folktale from the Philippines. It was a fun and entertaining day as students heard and participated in folktales, legends and fables. Here’s what several Antioch students shared after Ms. Davin’s performance: Ava: “The storyteller showed us that stories teach worlds full of wonders!”
