    Literary Essays from Mrs. Van DeBogart's Class

    Reading allows us to pause in the hurry of our lives to really notice, experience, and reflect, so too, writing gives us a tool to pause in our hurried reading to pay attention to characters and ideas in books. During the literary unit, Mrs. VanDeBogart’s class paid attention to characters and ideas in books. The analytical experience included learning how to write with evidence and cite texts. According to the Common Core Learning Standards, students must be able to write opinion pieces not only on topics but also on texts. (W.4.1) Students must also use technology to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of one page in a single sitting. (W.4.6) The students have become adept at writing opinion pieces and now have developed insightful literary essays.....select the link above for their essays

    Mrs. Lefferts' & Mrs. Speers' Class Publish Work

    Mrs. Lefferts and Mrs. Speers have worked with their class to integrate technology goals into their writing process. Students recently chose a narrative fiction piece they wrote earlier in the year to use to develop skills in typing, editing, and becoming more familiar with various features of computer software, such as Microsoft Word and Smart Notes. Students typed their pieces, edited, aligned pages, adjusted margins, designed and inserted graphics, inserted page borders, etc. When they completed their work, the final step was for all students to save their work as a PDF that could be downloaded into a Calameo file. The students are proud of the work they accomplished! Please enjoy this collaborative presentation of narrative fiction pieces.....select the link above for their stories

    Maple Syrup Process Comes to Bennett's Front Lawn

    Bennett students recently were the recipients of Mr. Burkhardt’s love and knowledge of the process of sap to syrup. Mr. Burkhardt, the Physical Education teacher at Phoenicia Elementary, has taken the time in previous years (at Phoenicia) and has shown his students the process, too. Several parents of Bennett students approached Mr. Burkhardt and asked if he would share this process with the Bennett Elementary building. He was thrilled for the opportunity to share his love and knowledge with more students, and Mr. Buono was also very excited for the students to have this opportunity.....select the link above for more
