PS 203 Reading and Writing Workshop on Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

posted Oct 21, 2019, 8:43 AM by District 22   [ updated Oct 21, 2019, 8:43 AM ]


P.S. 203’s ELA Ambassador Mrs. Crawford and Universal Literacy Coach Ms. Britton teamed up and hosted an informational Reading and Writing Workshop for the P.S. 203’s families. How children learn change and evolve so finding different ways to teach them is the goal of P.S. 203. Parents are an active part of the teaching and learning process so we take pride in educating them on how to support the changes in our students and facilitate learning at home.  Ms. Britton modeled reading strategies such as Echo, Choral, and Partner Reading strategies to our Pre-K through Second Grade families. Mrs. Crawford focused on writing strategies for our Third through Fifth grade families to support lifelong writers that can also have an impact the ELA exam.

The purpose of this workshop was to teach reading and writing skills and techniques to our families that they can use to support learning at home while fostering a love of reading and writing.

Ms. Laura O’Leary from the Brooklyn Library, the Flatlands Branch was in attendance to share informational events happening at all the libraries across the city.

On October 7th PS 194 went on a trip to the South Street Seaport. The class boarded the Wavetree, which is part of The South Street Seaport Museum. The students learned the history of the Wavetree and how people traveled across the sea. They were also allowed to hoist an actual sail! All 26 students worked in teams to get a first hand feel as to what it must have been like to work on a ship.
