Despite changes to classroom environments and learning models due to COVID-19, students at Washington Drive Primary School, within the Harborfields School District, are learning and participating in daily activities.
On Feb. 24, kindergartners in Heather Goldenberg’s class geared up for the 100th Day of School on Feb. 25. Students practiced counting to 100 as they danced and sang along to YouTube’s “100th Day of School Song,” by Mr. R’s Songs for Teaching.
Ms. Goldenberg’s students also recently celebrated how “We are All Alike” and “How We Are All Different” with a fun craft activity.
First graders in Barbara Craft’s class enjoyed “February Fun” activities like word searches and mind puzzles on Feb. 24. Students also practiced writing 100 words in anticipation of Washington Drive’s 100th Day of School.
Additionally, Ms. Craft’s class, and second graders in Deborah Ann Phillips’ class, also recently kicked off the New Year with the “One Word Challenge”—created by authors Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page in 1999 as a New Year’s resolution replacement. Students chose one word to serve as a guiding vision for 2021.
Down the hall, students in Erica O’Connor’s second grade class practiced coding using their Chromebooks. Making their way through an array of different activities, students learned the basics of code.
