BOCES and Island Trees Students Come Together by Mrs. Taffet
BOCES and Island Trees Students Come Together
by Mrs. Taffet, BOCES Teacher
Every month, students in Mrs. Taffet's class vote on a different country to study. They make foods from our chosen country, listen to their music and art, and learn other simple facts about life in other cultures. When 6th graders from Mr Esposito's class came to work with Mrs. Taffet's class this week, as they do every day during their short period, they brought their Chromebooks and helped Mrs. Taffet's students look up lots of fun facts about Spain. Other students from Ms. Longhway's class helped us color Spanish flags. They made Spanish Rice in the Home & Careers room. And next week, they will take a trip to a Spanish Restaurant to sample some authentic Spanish food. It's been really fun for the students to collaborate and learn about Spain, Russia, El Salvador and America so far this year!
