A visitor and a reading celebration both demonstrated how Kreamer Street students celebrate the written word each school day.

Board of Education Vice President Jack Nix recently visited grade 1-3 classrooms to read author Jessica Love’s “Julian is a Mermaid” about a boy who rode the subway with his grandmother and saw women dressed as mermaids. After the story, Mr. Nix allowed the students to ask questions. He also informed them of his role in the school district and his membership on the board of the Bellport Library. One of the goals, Mr. Nix said, was to find out the students’ views about their school and to insight a further love of reading.

Gina Benzie’s first grade class also held a reading celebration with Lina Jones’ second grade class. For the past few weeks, the students have worked on building good reading habits during Reading Workshop and have been studying how to write narratives about a moment in their lives during Writing Workshop. The students then shared their work with the second graders and received a Good Habits Certificate for their beautifully illustrated and written works.
