Second Grade and Quizlet

Mrs. Ardizzoni, our technology instructional specialist, showed second graders in Mrs. Keough-Lane's class how to use the website Quizlet today. This app helps students to create flashcards and other study tools. The students loved using the app as a way learn about geography.

Wax Museum

The third graders did fantastic research for their Massachusetts Biography Wax Museum. I greatly enjoyed my conversations with people such as Clara Barton, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Deborah Sampson.

Members of the BPS EdTech Team, along with BHS Help Desk students, will provide parents and their children with information about the current state and future trends of STEM, including opportunities for young women. Parents will receive an overview of the K-12 STEM curriculum offered in Burlington and learn about potential college majors and STEM related career paths. We will also provide a list of FREE resources designed to keep children of all ages engaged in STEM activities year round. The evening will conclude with hands-on Hour of Code activities for the entire family. Parents and students will select from a variety of free coding tutorials and explore the basics of computer programming with support from the BPS EdTech Team and BHS Help Desk students.

Today students in Mrs. Parnell's Kindergarten celebrated their Victorian Lunch.

Math Fluency

Today in Mrs. Beaulieu's fifth grade classroom students were working on improving their math fluency. Students work to improve their own individual performance.

Fluency does not take the place of understanding math but, is a conceptual building block in having number sense. It is very similar to how someone needs to be fluent in a language to be able to comprehend what they are reading.

Grade 4

Students in Mrs. Visocchi's 4th grade today were researching different national parks. The graphic organizer used for this project was a great tool to help students classify ideas and communicate effectively their higher order thinking.

A very special thank you to Barbara Nunues, our custodian, for taking care of not only the chicks but the many animals at Pine Glen during these snow days. We greatly appreciate all she does for our school!
