Students Study MLK

Second grade students in Heather Paglino’s class at William Rall Elementary School in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District recently explored the message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a unique way. As a class the students examined two eggs, one brown and one white. The students compared and contrasted the eggs and documented the physical characteristic on a graphic organizer. The teacher then broke each egg open and students once again documented their observations.

This lesson came on the heels of the students studying Dr. King and his efforts during the civil rights movement. When asked what she learned from this lesson, one student Divine said “Not everyone is the same on the outside, but we are all the same on the inside.” Another student Mohammed noted that “Martin Luther King was trying to teach the same message as our teacher!”

Foreign language and ENL students representing grades sixth through eighth at Lindenhurst Middle School recently took part in an Arts-In-Education program in which they were exposed to an exhilarating array of multicultural dance performances by members of the Phyllis Rose Dance Company.

The troupe showcased several dances from across the world illustrating the traditions and celebrations of Hanukkah, Kwanza and Christmas. Dances were choreographed to include traditional steps such as the horah, as well as trendy moves such as “dabbing.” The students not only had the chance to observe the performance, but were also given the opportunity to show off their own moves for their fellow classmates.
