First grade students in Mrs. Friedman’s class at Frank K. Hehnly Elementary School look forward to the time that they get to read on their own. They usually engage in D.E.A.R time right after lunch. D.E.A.R stands for Drop Everything And Read! During this time, students gather books from their book box, which they get to choose from the class library.
Students in Jennifer Bartolomeo’s class at Valley Road School in Clark were introduced to the different coins we use in the United States. The first coin the students learned about was the penny. They learned that five pennies can be exchanged for a nickel, two nickels for a dime, and to put two dimes and a nickel together to make a quarter. When the students learned about all the different denominations of coins, they put their addition and subtraction skills to the test, and counted the coins. Next, the students will learn about a one, five, and ten dollar bill. In the picture above, from left, Lucas Origliato and Jacob Prystauk sort, count, and add coins.
