Third graders at NTES are participating in the Global Read Aloud (GRA). From its humble beginnings, the GRA has grown to make a truly global connection with more than 1,000,000 students having participated. Beginning October 3 and continuing for six-weeks, several third grade classrooms are reading The BFG by Roald Dahl, along with classrooms around the world. Teachers and students are making global connections through Skype, Twitter, Google Classroom, and Padlet as we enjoy the book together and complete various activities.
Second Grade had a special visitor on Tuesday, September 13th, Captain Friendship. They watched the Bright Star Touring group perform, Captain Friendship and the Bully Bandit. Captain Friendship is a superhero who was bullied while in school and has made it her mission to help students deal with this problem around the world. The students were an important part of the play and enthusiastically chanted “Enough is enough, it’s time to be friends”, when called upon by Captain Friendship to defeat the bullies. The objective was to provide students with resources they can use if they are faced with bullying or watching bullying going on around them. With the help of the students, Captain Friendship defeats the Bullying Bandit and demonstrates that we all have an inner superhero and won’t let bullying go on in our school.
