We invited the Conval High School National Honor Society students to read a story and provide a connected activity; thirty-five high school students joined us. 35! It was awesome. Each classroom had 2, 3, or more high school students sharing their love of reading and sharing stories with our students.
As part of a unit on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, 2nd and 4th graders were visited by Dick Dunning (who is part of the NH 6th reenactment group) who answered questions and shared items and “stories” about life during the war. This was a wonderful hands-on experience for the students.
As part of “World Read Aloud Day”, to celebrate reading, Mr. Pimental has been reading books with several classes. In this photo, Mr. Pimental is reading aloud to Mrs. Hasting’s 3rd Grade Class.
Ms. Ambrosini’s 2nd grade class celebrated the 100th day of school by attempting a variety of activities: students worked together to complete 100 piece puzzles, attempted to stack 100 plastic cups, predicted how high 100 drops of water would fill a flask, contemplated and wrote about what they will be doing when they are 100 years old,
When teaching students to read, we use a multi-modal approach. Along with traditional approaches, and using the super-engaging LetterLand curriculum, our students use classroom computers for various software programs during literacy centers time. Here a first grader is using Lexia software in a classroom reading center.
Students from Mr. Rothhaus’ class visited and read to RiverMead residents. Each fourth-grade class visits once every three months.
We had such an overwhelming response to Lego Club in 1st & 2nd Grade we had to divide the group into two sessions. Here is one very unique creation.
