Jump Roping to the Rhythm

Students in Mrs. Flook's elementary general music classes read a brief article about the history of the jump rope. Students were surprised to learn that jumping rope has been around for thousands of years and was originally an activity enjoyed only by boys.  Eventually as the girls' dresses became less cumbersome and girls were allowed more time to play, they took over the jump rope and made it into an art form by creating chants or rhymes to help them keep the beat, stepped outside to learn about rhythm in a new and exciting way.  Students were able to get outside and practice some simple jumping using the chants, as well as, some jump rope stunts that they had learned about.

Montandon visits Mobile Ag Ed. Science Labs

Montandon’s 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students were invited to attend a Mobile Ag Ed Science Lab at James F. Baugher Elementary.

Thanks to a Susquehanna Community Foundation Grant, we were able to host this incredible opportunity for our students. This mobile classroom arrived at Baugher Elementary and was available to all our 3rd , 4th, and 5th grade students. Montandon's students learned about “The Mighty Smooth Soy Bean”. During the session a few things the students learned about were, the parts of a soy bean, which was stronger plaster or a soy bean, what household items contact soy beans in them, and how wax is made from a beehive.

Pictured is Mrs. Scoggins’ 4th grade class at the Mobile Lab.




Montandon's students in 3rd- 5th, truly enjoyed being given the opportunity to explore these Mobile Ag Ed Science Labs.
