Title One News
Title 1 is up and running in full force! We have 3 full time teachers supporting children in grades one through five, in math and reading. Families sometimes ask about apps that they can download to a digital device to help their children with their learning. Here is a short list of apps that can be used to support math and reading:
Math: Hungry Fish, Rekenrek by Mathies, Number Rack, Friends of Ten, 10 Frame Fill, Fast Math, Front Row, Prodigy. Students access Prodigy here at school. It is okay to start a new account for home or check with the classroom teacher about access to the school account.
Reading: Epic, Raz-kids, National Geographic Weird but True, Lyrically, Popwords, Word Domino, Word Magic. Students access Reading a-z here at school. Check with the classroom teacher to be able to login at home! Lyrically is a fun app that allows you to instantly find lyrics to songs that you are listening to on the radio. It’s a modern day carpool karaoke!
Whether you use apps, or not, remember to practice every single day, but be sure to make math and reading engaging and enjoyable.

Physical Education News - February 2017
Physical Education News

Students in grades 3-5 have been learning about the components of physical fitness, (cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition) and improving each of them. Students are working on improving their heart and lung fitness by beginning class with running for a certain amount of time. Most classes are up to 6 or 7 minutes of continuous running. Students are also using a new crunch counter to help keep track of their crunches for abdominal strength as well as a push up counter for upper body strength.
The students have just finished learning about basketball and have been working on their dribbling, passing, and shooting skills. The fifth graders were also learning to demonstrate and recognize the difference between offense and defense in a game situation.

We have just started having fun with jump ropes.
Students have been using the long jump ropes and individual jump ropes to help improve coordination and stamina. Hopefully students in grades 3-5
will also get some cross country skiing in.
The Kindergarten students have been learning about different levels and have practiced moving and exercising at different levels. We have just starting using the long jump ropes as well.
Students in grade 1 have been using hoops to practice concepts like over, under, through, and around.
Students in grade 2 are working hard at perfecting their skills with underhand and overhand throwing.
I would like to encourage parents/guardians, older siblings, or grandparents to spend time with these younger students and practice throwing, catching, and dribbling because it is a fun activity and it will help them develop their skills.
I can certainly say, that at SBES I am!
Thank you STUDENTS!

Health News - February 2017
Health News
The Students at SBES have been learning about eating healthy. One of the hardest concepts to understand is Serving Size. The chart below is helpful in determining what a serving size is for foods that do not necessarily tell you and how many servings of each food group you need a day.
Suggested Servings from Each Food Group
The American Heart Association recommends a healthy dietary pattern that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, fish, skinless poultry, nuts, and fat-free/low-fat dairy products, and limits sodium, saturated fat, red meat and added sugars.
This table shows the suggested number of servings from each food group based on a daily intake of 1,600 or 2,000 calories.
There is a right number of calories for you, depending on your age, physical activity level and whether you are trying to lose, gain or maintain your weight. Use our Fats and Sodium Explorer tool to get your personal daily calories.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
