By the time Todd’s first graders enter second grade in the fall they will be proficient writers. Students in Deborah Adelberg and Andrea Jacoby’s class created entire books, complete with a cover and a table of contents, to showcase their knowledge about a variety of subjects.
As she wraps up her first year at Briarcliff Middle School as a sixth grader, Anushka Rai has accomplished a dream: she self-published a book on Amazon called ‘Chasing the Stars.’ With the help of her parents, as well as her friend Lily Ahmed, who drew the cover, Anushka wrote a book which, she hopes, will bring inspiration to others.
If students cannot get to a museum, the museum will come to them.
One of the final projects for fifth graders this year was to create a Latin American Countries museum. Students in Lori Fraternale and Suzanne Mauriello’s classes made posters that featured information about various Latin American Countries.
Masks are off, kickball is back and smiles on students’ faces are everywhere!
This week, fifth graders in Lori Fraternale and Suzanne Mauriello’s classes had a blast playing one of Todd’s favorite games and oldest traditions on the grassy field.
