"One of the most valuable (and enjoyable!) things you can do as a reader is dabble in different genres. Although it is nice to read what interests you, limiting yourself to only one type of book can narrow your reading experiences and get very BORING! It is very important to explore different genres to get a taste of all that is out there. Who knows, you may even find a new favorite!" Ms. Tricia Wallace, Grade 5
Students in Tricia Wallace's fifth grade are learning about different types of literature through monthly genre book projects. Each month features a new genre and related creative project. In December, students explored different types of folklore. They read various myths in small groups and worked together to summarize the story. Following this in-class group work, students were given several weeks to complete a "Peek-A-Boo" poster project. Each student was asked to re-write the myth from the perspective of one of the characters in the story and construct a poster featuring that character with a spot for his/her face to peek through! Students shared their work with one another, taking on the persona of these characters and reading their summaries. Here are a few photos of the final products! They did a fantastic job!!!
The Lincoln School Green Team is planning a Waste Free Day at Lincoln for next and we are asking all Lincoln School members to try to pack snacks and lunches that generate trash as little waste as possible - preferably none! The Lincoln School Green Team is encouraging everyone to use as many reusable containers as possible. For example, if you bring food in plastic baggies, please consider returning the baggies home to be reused. Other suggestions for your consideration include: using a thermos; reusable water bottle; reusable lunch bags; packing snacks that do not have a lot of packaging; etc. Please talk about it with your family, we bet you can think of many more ways to have a zero waste lunch and snack.
We recognize that students getting school lunch will be limited in what they can do - but we are asking for everyone’s extra efforts to recycle properly and return any unopened food items to the lunch counter if they came from a school lunch.
We conducted a “surprise” lunch trash audit on Monday, Jan. 25th and we will be conducting another trash audit on the Waste Free Day - next. The student Green Team will be compiling data comparing the 2 audits to share with the entire school. Please join us in being Waste Free next .
