Notes from the Hawthorne Library
A Monthly Report for Families and Teachers
SECOND AND THIRD GRADES
We kicked off our Adopt-a-Species research in second and third grades this month; our Hawks are learning about the red-tailed hawk! Each week, the students worked through their research packets, exploring a variety of resources and learning notetaking skills along the way. This research will culminate in a community art project in December.
During the short Thanksgiving week, Ms. Dunnehoff's students did an awesome reading response activity to accompany the biography Balloons over Broadway, which tells the story of the puppeteer who created the first balloons in the Macy's Day Parade. Using Legos, the students designed "balloons" which I then photographed against the greenscreen. The resulting "parade" video is a lot of fun!
FOURTH AND FIFTH GRADES
A GIGANTIC THANK YOU!
More importantly, I loved getting to meet and visit with so many of you! I definitely hope to repeat this event in the future and would love any feedback those of you who attended would like to provide - send me an email at email@example.com.
