CLARK — Third graders at Frank K. Hehnly School in Clark highlighted good habits to “fall” into this autumn, and used a new Reading Wonder program, while first graders learned about coins.
This week students in Ashley Guarino and Christine Cemelli’s third grade classes at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School in Clark highlighted good habits to “fall” into this autumn. The students decorated a leaf with their choice of a good habit. Many students vowed to be more active and to study more efficiently at home! Both classes’ habits are posted on a bulletin board in our school to promote healthy choices. Pictured above from the left is Luke Texidor, Jake Vito, Wiktoria Baniekiewicz, and Molly Fernandez in front of the bulletin board.
Students in Christine Cemelli’s third grade class at Frank K. Hehnly in Clark use the new Reading Wonder’s program. Students learned about cause and effect, and played a matching game to practice the skill. After working as a class, students broke off with their reading partners to analyze the text in order to find examples of cause and effect. Cemelli said, “The class enjoyed moving around, and finding the cause to their effect, during the game. After, students were able to work with their partners to show off what they know. They are always enthused about partner work!” Michael Olszewski and Dewone Smikle are pictured above.
First grade students in Mrs. Friedman’s class at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School in Clark used magnifying glasses to examine coins. The students then charted what they discovered about the coins, such as whom or what is on the head and tail of the coin, what the coin is made out of, and what the coin is worth. This opportunity for discovery allows the students to properly identify the coin when it comes time to use the money in math problems. The students are also interested in the connections they made between history and math. Pictured above, Matthew Falcon studies a nickel.
