Second Grade Biome PowerPoints

Second grade students at Parkview Elementary learned about all of the different biomes in the world. Each student then chose one biome to research. After researching, the students created a PowerPoint about their biome to share with others.

Below is one example from a student in Mrs. Calabria's class.

National Library Week 2013

Happy National Library Week to you all! It was a great week here in New London celebrating all that our libraries are and can do for our teachers and students!

Students and staff were invited to tell us why the library was important to them.

This picture was taken late in the week and we had even more turned in after this! We are overflowing with love for the library!

Wednesday at Parkview was Poem in Your Pocket Day. You can read more about that HERE.

Friday all elementary students were invited to wear a readable t-shirt. Mrs. Saucerman's class had a lot of readable t-shirts!

Throughout the week, all elementary students received a free book from the library to take home and keep forever. They really enjoyed that and some of the students couldn't believe they didn't have to bring it back!

 Here Mrs. Cherf helps Mrs. Kloehn with book distribution to 4th graders.

And for a bit of fun, all of the elementary library ladies got together to celebrate "our week" over dinner!

I hope you had a wonderful week and remember that the library is a great place all year long, not just one week in April!

Poem in Your Pocket Day

Hello! Today was an exciting day! Thanks to Shannon Miller, I was able to connect Parkview Elementary with lots of other schools around the nation to celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day!

Classrooms were able to connect with others using Skype to share poetry.

It was a great day and students loved to read poetry, whether it was theirs or one they selected from a book, as well as hear other students read to them.
