Carle Place Students Transform into Famous Figures for Biography Project

Second graders from Cherry Lane School recently learned about biographies and completed their own biography project on an individual of their choosing.

The students researched famous athletes, historic figures, artists and more. They then organized their research into an essay and created their own posters, tri-fold boards or dioramas to showcase their person of study. Each student practiced their public speaking skills as they presented facts about their researched individual to their class. In addition, some students dressed like their famous figure as they shared their individual’s story.

Classmates listened intently and were encouraged to ask questions, compliment the presenter, or talk about a connection that they made. The project was a fun way for students to learn about biographies, channel their interests and showcase their creativity.

Carle Place students from Cherry Lane School recently celebrated the special people in their community during the school’s annual “Characters of Carle Place” event. Coordinated by ENL teacher Nicole Santos, “Characters of Carle Place” invites professionals from around Carle Place to the school to read to students and speak about their important roles in the community.

Various community helpers were invited to Cherry Lane School to read a short book about feelings to a class and then speak about their career. Readers included an actor, bakers, a dentist, doctor, EMT, firefighters, lawyer, a Marine, nurse, police officers, realtor and Cherry Lane’s school social worker.

Classes heard one of four different books. These included “The Color Monster” by Anna Llenas, “In My Heart: A Book of Feelings” by Jo Witek, “Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun: Having the Courage to be Who You Are” by Maria Dismondy and “The Way I Feel” by Janan Cain. Each of the stories aligned with the district’s mental health standards.

Following the reading, each class learned more about their visitor as they asked questions about their important work. It was a memorable day for the entire Cherry Lane school community.

Cherry Lane Students Unite for Global School Play Day

Students at Cherry Lane School celebrated Global School Play Day on Feb. 7. Students around the world celebrate Global School Play Day each year. It began in 2015 by educators who were influenced by a TED Talk by Peter Gray about the positive impact that play has on children.

At Cherry Lane, the fun-filled day consisted of unstructured play throughout the school day. Each student was encouraged to bring in their favorite game or toy to play with in the classroom. Students played board games and card games with their peers, created artwork, took on building challenges and engaged in imaginative play. The goal of the day was to foster creativity, imagination and problem solving as students navigated different play opportunities.

Throughout the day, teachers encouraged students to explore and figure out ways to play on their own. It was a great day for the entire school community.
