A Day in the Life at WCCS - 3rd Grader Mason Metcalf
Ever wonder what it's really like to be a student at WCCS? This week, we are starting a new blog series entitled, "A Day in the Life". Each week, you'll hear from one of our students about what it's like to learn, play, serve, and worship at WCCS! This week, 3rd grader Mason Metcalf shares what his day is like at the lower school.
When I get into school I copy down my homework for the day. Then we start Bible study. We study verses, play games, and read from our workbooks. Right now we are working on Samuel’s life. On Friday we do the quiz on our verse of the week. I am pretty good at memorizing that.
Next, we do Math. Most of the time we do models, quizzes, and worksheets. We can also play math games. This week we are learning division by nines. Math is not my favorite, but it is ok.
Then, we go to other classes, like P.E., Music, and Art. Sometimes we even have two, but that’s another story. My favorite is P.E. I don’t know why I just do.
Next, we do Language Arts time. Sometimes, I go to Reading Groups with my partner Birdie Means. I like working with Birdie because she comes up with good ideas. Reading Groups is when you read books and talk about them with teachers and students. We do papers and other writing about the books. We are working on a report about a man named Frederick Douglass.
My most favorite part of the day is Recess. We play in the sandbox, playhouse, and mud kitchen. We do this for 30 minutes.
Next, we go to lunch. At lunch we eat the food we brought or ordered and talk with friends. My favorite is when I order pizza.
Last, we look over our language papers and do Science and I rock it! In Science, we are learning about erosion and doing experiments in the Explore Lab. We can also do History depending on which half of the year it is.
At the end of the day we go to car line and go home. I really like Mrs. Winn’s class because we get to sit where we choose like sitting on the carpet. Also, I only have about 10 kids in my class which is fun because you get called on more often! I think this school is different because here we talk about God and do lessons about him. Everything we do points back to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, even in Science!
