I am so excited to be in a new school year working with such amazing students. This year I will once again be at both Greenwood (Mon/Wed) and Tuckahoe Elementary Schools (Tues/Thurs/Fri). By now you should have received my introduction newsletter for the year, as well as a parent contact form. The parent contact form helps me to communicate with you throughout the school year, work on goals with your child and provide you resources to help your child excel both in school and at home. I appreciate everyone for taking the time to complete this. Thank you!
To start off the school year I am working with first and second graders on the book Rosie Revere Engineer. Together we discuss Rosie’s character changes throughout the book, her character traits and how the students compare to Rosie. Next, the students get to be an inventor like Rosie and come up with an invention that will be helpful to someone. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
In grades 3-5, students are working on goal setting. It is important to start the year with a personal goal in mind that they can work to accomplish. For this activity, students will narrow their goal down to a single word which will be their focus word for the year. Along with this activity students will discuss the importance of color and using vivid vocabulary in their writing. The products are going to look amazing!
