On April 16th the first graders of Mrs. McGuire and Mrs. O'Flaherty's class visited Hackensack University Medical Center for a wonderful tour of the facility. The class was led by a wonderful tour guide that allowed the student to learn that a visit to the hospital isn't as scary as they may think. The students enjoyed learning about all the instruments used by the nurses and doctors, as well as a visit to the Pediatric Radiology Room where they saw an x ray machine and real x-rays. OOOhs and Ahhhs were heard by all when the class visited the newborn nursery. Many of the students shared stories of also being born at H.U.M.C. The tour ended with a snack of cookies and milk while the students asked questions and shared their favorite parts of the trip.

The students in Mr. Quiambao’s fourth grade class have been busy brushing up and fine-tuning their math skills through Accelerated Math. Using this computer-based program on Renaissance Learning, students have been assigned skills and objectives based solely from data collected on each student’s STAR Math test results. To add to the excitement of consistent practice and testing of their skills, Mr. Quiambao created a goal to master a certain number of skills and objectives for each individual student. As a result, four students in his fourth grade class completed 100% of their goal and were awarded with a student-teacher pizza luncheon. Click the title to read more.
At the end of the book Mrs. Izen’s fifth graders read, Loser, there is an interesting scene where the main character is picked to be on a football team. Most of the students made fun of this character in the entire book. However, this character refused to leave the game and eventually his name was called to be on one of the teams. This made the main character feel really good about himself. The students in my class talked about the special qualities that make each person unique in their own way. Mrs. Izen’s class decided that we would relate this story to them. As a group, we talked about the many abilities and interests that make each one of them a special person. We wanted to celebrate these qualities and created a class quilt. Each member of the class has a square that is all about them and what makes them special. The quilt is on display outside room 304 in Lincoln School.
