Battle of the Books! There is a little know contest going on at Sheldon's own East Elementary! It is the Reading Rivalry between Buenger's Bright Buddies and Ney's Nice Notables. Which team will win this race? Who will read the most books in the final stretch of the year? When the dust settles and our books are tallied, we know we will all win! Readers are leaders! (1B has read 1,931 books and 1A has read 1,929 books) Way to go 1st grade! *message written by East Elementary's Adopt a Grandma, Shannon* #LeadOn #orabs #sheldonorabs #orabs #reading #leaders #reader #books #battleofthebooks

Math is even sweeter with candy! Kindergarten students at East Elementary practiced their math skills with jelly beans. They had to sort, count, and then graph their jellybeans. Finally they got to eat them! *Image created by Sheldon High School Mass Media Student, Alexis Reekers* #LeadOn #orabs #sheldonorabs #jellybeans #candy #sheldon #learning

Reading buddies at East Elementary are pairs of students that are grouped together from different grade levels and they meet once a week to read with each other. This helps our students get to know other students outside of their grade level, while also getting to practice reading aloud to someone else! *Image created by Sheldon High School Mass Media Class Student, Aniyah Williams* #LeadOn #Orabs #sheldonorabs #learning #reading #readingbuddies #sheldonreadingtogether #read
