In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, students at Great Neck Road Elementary School created a dream wall in their school. After learning about Dr. King and his life’s mission and the differences he made, the students each wrote about their own dreams and how they hope to make a difference. Each student then added their individual dream to the wall to create one wall of dreams.
In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and his mission of peace, students in Ms. Haughney’s art classes through the district have been reflecting on his work. Some of their recent projects inspired by Dr. King include mosaic peace symbols and doves of peace with olive branches.
Second grader at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School have been learning all about traditional fairy tales and fractured fairy tales. Students learned how to compare traditional and fractured fairy tales using a double bubble map. They also created “wanted” posters for the villains they read about in both traditional and fractured fairy tales. For the writing portion of the lesson, the students designed their own gingerbread houses for the gingerbread characters they read about in different versions of the Gingerbread Man. They wrote their own persuasive writing to convince a gingerbread character to live in their gingerbread house. The second graders shared their persuasive writing with their classmates both in the classroom and at home.
