Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently learned about controlling their voices while at school.
Second-grade teacher Tracey Rinehart read the book “Decibella and Her 6-Inch Voice” by Julia Cook.
The story is about a young girl nicknamed Decibella who needs to learn to talk softer. She eventually learns the proper way to talk to people when she learns the five speaking volumes.
After reading the book, students wrote about how they will use the different volumes and then glued together and colored their very own pictures of Decibella.
At Wings Express, students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.
Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.
There are no Wings Express activities on Wednesdays.
Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.
About 90 students will participate in the Wings Express program.
Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.
