Scholastic Book Fair Success!

This blog post was originally published at www.bpsedtech.org/2017/12/15/scholastic-book-fair-success/.



Our Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success! We sold about $4,000 worth of books so we were able to purchase $2,000 worth of books for our library learning commons. This could not have happened without all of the parent volunteers. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

Thank you, also, for the donations towards the Scholastic All for Books program. We raised $56 and Scholastic matched the $56... so $112 worth of books are going to kids who need books.


Mrs. Hayes 3rd Grade Class



Congratulations to Mrs. Hayes' 3rd grade class for doing an incredible act of kindness! This group used their own money to buy books at the book fair for Mrs. Hayes' classroom library. We are so proud of them for this gift to Mrs. Hayes and future 3rd graders who will be able to enjoy these wonderful books!

Hip-Hop Music and Geography

Today during my walkthrough's I saw students is Ms. Merlino's Grade 4 Classroom dancing and singing to hip-hop music. The students were singing the states and their related capitals as I way to store this knowledge into their long term memory.

Grade 2 Science


Today during my walkthrough's I saw Ms. Anderson modeling for her students how to do two-column notes. Ms. Anderson's students were learning about the different states of matter. Students were being asked to use higher order thinking to do classification and categorization. In addition, Ms. Anderson was teaching her students a lifelong skillset for note-taking that is preparing them for higher level education.

Welcome Mr. Castro


We are very excited this week to welcome Mr. Castro to Pine Glen Elementary School. Mr. Castro has expertise in teaching students who do not have English as their first language.   He has been a welcome addition to our school.
