Students in Stacey Barrett’s second-grade class and English as a New Language learners in Andrea Lynam’s class at Great Neck Road recently collaborated for a delicious and descriptive lesson.
 
The classes joined together to “spice up” their writing with salsa words. The students tasted and described a plain rice cake, then spiced it up with some salsa and described the rice cake with salsa. This was done to introduce them to using “spicy” words or adjectives to enrich their writing. They then worked with groups to write different examples of adjectives. In their next writing assignment, the students will be tasked with using descriptive words to spice up their writing.
