Read Across America Day Celebrated

Students throughout the district celebrated national Read Across America on March 2 in a myriad of ways. The day honors the birthday of the late Dr. Seuss, author of many famous children’s books including “Horton Hears A Who!,” “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket!”

Lindenhurst High School student council members recently organized an event in which high school students volunteered to visit the district’s elementary schools and read to the young students. Additionally, they shared Seuss-themed stickers, bookmarks and word searches with classes and gave each student in the class a certificate of participation in the day.

At Lindenhurst Middle School, many teachers served as guest readers and acted out various stories, essays and poems throughout the day for students. A variety of Dr. Seuss books were read, along with other selections.

Students in Lisa Cognato’s first-grade class at Albany Avenue celebrated the author through a series of academic Seuss-themed centers to reinforce skills such as comparing and contrasting, writing number sentences and solving problems, and following directions. At the end of the day, students enjoyed a special “Cat in the Hat” treat.

Going for Gold

The 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea have not only inspired patriotism among students in the district but also scientific curiosity. Fourth-grade students of West Gates Avenue Elementary School and third-grade students of William Rall Elementary School recently took part in STEM activities designed to reflect the Olympic theme. In small teams, using materials such as aluminum foil, pipe cleaners, and washers students created plans and constructed bobsleds, curling rocks and ski jumpers. Using the scientific method, the students tested their equipment, made modifications and retested until they were confident their creation would take the gold in a class competition.

The fifth-grade students of Valerie Dietrich and Jen Villardi’s class at William Rall Elementary School got creative in a different way. Those students used their researching skills to create group Google Slide presentations in which they explored their favorite Olympic events in greater depth following a set criteria. Presentations, which included music, video clips and photographs, were researched, designed and presented by each group to their fellow classmates in front of a “panel of judges” (the classroom teachers).
