21st Century: Escape Room in a Box #2

On Tuesday, November 21, 2017, ten students in Grade 5 met with Ms. Swicord and Mr. Choi after school to take part in Kramer Lane Elementary School's second "Escape Room in a Box" challenge. Students were challenged to locate and use clues, hints, and their knowledge to open a locked box to discover its contents.  In this challenge, students needed to help the Girl Scouts of America unlock contents of a box in order for them to proceed on a letterboxing journey. While using critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, the students successfully unlocked the contents of the box with over 17 minutes to spare! After the challenge, the students participated in a debrief session where they reflected on their challenge with Ms. Swicord and Mr. Choi! Congratulations to all of the participants! Stay tuned for new "Escape Room in a Box" challenges in the future!

21st Century: Escape Room in a Box

On Thursday, November 2, 2017, ten students in Grade 5 met with Ms. Swicord and Mr. Choi to attempt Kramer Lane Elementary School's first ever "Escape Room in a Box" challenge. Based on concept of the ever popular escape room challenge, students needed to locate and use clues, hints, and their knowledge to open a locked box to discover its contents. This challenge tasked the students to help Ms. Swicord unlock the box to access the "ticket to learning". The participants used the 4C's: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity throughout the challenge. With 87 seconds remaining, the students were successful and unlocked the box!  Afterwards, the students participated in a debrief session where they discussed elements of the challenge with Ms. Swicord and Mr. Choi.  Congratulations to all of the participants!

Grade 3 Writer's Workshop

Across Bethpage Schools, Grade 3 students are engaged in a Writer's Workshop. The students are learning to improve their writing skills going through the various steps of the writing process as taught by Sarah Cordova. Grade 3 students are currently learning about creating personal narratives. They learned how "small moments" in our lives are part of a bigger, narrative story. Mr. Choi, the district's Director of Technology, visited Mr. Arettines' Grade 3 class to share with his class about how he had a "small moment" in his life with his thoroughbred racehorse, Away to Me. As authors include "feelings" in stories to make the story come to life, Mr. Choi worked with the students to brainstorm various feelings he felt during different parts of Away to Me's race.  The students enjoyed the lesson and we thank Mr. Choi for his visit and sharing his "small moment" with us.
