Recently Ms. Barry’s First Grade Class had a special guest reader. Lynn Fire Department District Chief Jack Barry, came in to read a book to the students. Ms. Barry, the Chief’s daughter, said Fire Fire was one her childhood favorites and she remembers her dad reading the story to her. The children listened attentively and wore their new fire hats with pride. Thank you Chief Barry for sharing your time with us!

We recently received a set of Quick Response Clickers. They work in conjunction with the Smart Board. Mrs. LoGiudice can post a question to all the students and then each student registers their vote on the response system. It reminds me of jeopardy. The students lock in their answers and minutes later a graph appears displaying the results. This new classroom tool not only engages the students, but allows the teacher to get a real quick glance at who needs more help on certain skills. Thanks Mrs. Lo for experimenting with new instructional tools!
On Friday Grades 2 and 4 walked over to the Briar Cliff Lodge to share songs in celebration of Memorial Day. The students under the care of music teacher Ms. Cohen did a wonderful job. It is become a cherish tradition for both students and the seniors at Briaf Cliff.
On behalf of all the teachers at Lynn Woods School, thanks for making Teacher Appreciation so spectacular. You spoiled us with treats all week. The new spring water cooler is perfect! The luncheon on Friday was simply delicious. We truly send a most sincere thank you.
