SAS ES 2B Invite Parents to Read in Class
Wednesday, September 28th, 2022: Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School's 2B Class was supposed to walk to the Library for a field trip. When the rain forced their teachers to cancel, they made the best of it by inviting parents to read to the class! 2B atoms explored the book "The Word Collector" by Peter H. Reynolds. In "The Word Collector," the main character Jerone, uses expressive vocabulary and shares it with the world around him. The children in 2B investigated words and connected them to synonyms to expand their vocabulary, followed by an investigation of keywords from the book. Parent volunteers engaged and supported the expansion of learning with their SANY scholars.
