  • Earth Day - Virtual Learning

    Posted by Devon Tarewicz on 4/24/2020 4:00:00 PM

    This week we celebrated Earth Day and my library and research lessons focused on nature, Earth Day, conservation, and recycling.  Fourth grade students read Just a Dream by one of our favorite picture book authors, Chris Van Allsburg.  It is a story about a boy who goes into the future and learns what may happen to our planet if we don't make good choices about littering and pollution.  Next, students used BrainPop as a resource to learn about human impacts on the environment.  We finished with a great grade level discussion (which was also a great time to review netiquette) about what we can do to help our planet.  Third grade students learned about different styles of poetry and wrote a Haiku poem.  Second grade students went on a rainforest adventure with a fiction story and research on a rainforest animal of their choice.  First graders had a fiction/nonfiction lesson about birds and created a bird craft.  Kindergarten students learned about Earth Day with a story, and then researched different types of plants.  Then they were challenged to take a nature walk and create a word made with objects they found from nature.  Take a look at this video to see some of the amazing creations from our lessons this week.

  • One Book One School

    Posted by Devon Tarewicz on 3/6/2020

    Thank you to everyone for participating in our first One Book One School reading event.  It was a huge success thanks to the commitment from our APT, teachers, parents, and students.  I revealed the One Book One School event to our students at an assembly on the first day of Read Across America week.  I had students and teachers from the audience represent the characters that were going to be in the book.  Students left the assembly and got to hear chapter one at school with their classmates.  Chapter two was read at home, and the pattern followed until we reached the end of the book on Friday.  I received the most wonderful family reading photos all week.  Every picture made me smile-whether students were reading with their parents, to their parents, with their siblings, or even with their fur babies.  All of the photos I received are hanging up in the library as a great reminder of how important it is to take time out of our busy days to read together.
