Mrs. Faria's Kindergarten class at the Wilkins School is pictured here during a recent reading workshop lesson. Students enjoyed some time outside while learning that they could use connecting words like and, after, then, and later to join the pages of their storybooks. After reading Jack and the Beanstalk as a class, students read their own storybooks under the beautiful fall trees behind the Wilkins School.

Third grade students at the Wilkins School participated in a rounding activity. They went “shopping” where they had $1 to spend and chose two items they wanted to buy. They rounded the prices of the items, added these together, and determined if they had enough money to buy both items.

To celebrate Constitution Day, which commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, the Wilkins School created its own Wilkins Constitution. The Wilkins Constitution had three categories - "Be Safe", "Be Respectful", and "Be Responsible". Wilkins classes discussed the rules and expectations they wanted to see included and wrote them out and placed the strips of paper under the appropriate category. Students then signed the Constitution, which will be on display in one of the hallways at the Wilkins during the month of September. Third grade students are pictured here in front of the Wilkins Constitution.

Wilkins School students had a whale of a time on March 22 as “The Whalemobile” came for a visit. The Whalemobile is a life-sized inflatable whale named Nile, modeled after a real humpback whale that can be seen off the coast of Massachusetts. The inflatable whale was set up in the Wilkins School gymnasium, with classes visiting it throughout the day. Students could even go inside the inflatable structure to get a look at what a whale’s interior would look like! Students enjoyed getting up close to Nile, going inside, and learning about whales during their time with the Whalemobile.

Two members of the ELPAC (English Learner Parent Advisory Council), Mrs. Previatti and Mrs. De Souza, recently came as guest readers to read classic folktales in Portuguese for March Book Madness at the Wilkins School. Our native Portuguese speakers loved hearing these stories in their home language and interpreting for their friends. Our native English speakers also appreciated hearing stories in another language, understanding how it must feel to learn a second language. This was a great literacy, multicultural and multilingual experience for all!
