A collaborative project at Chippewa Elementary School recently combined literacy, math and art as first grade students in Donna Gianfortone’s class published their very own book, “A World of Math.”

Inspired by a love for math, students in Gianfortone’s class set out to publish a book that depicted where math is present in our everyday lives. Each student wrote a page for the book and created an illustration to accompany their writing, showcasing their artistic abilities. 

At the conclusion of the project, students attended a “red carpet event” where family and friends were invited to hear the first reading of their new literary masterpiece before celebrating their impressive accomplishment. 

Chippewa Students Team Up to Create Tall Towers

A collaborative effort from third-grade students at Chippewa Elementary School in Amy DeJesus’ class made for a successful STEM activity, as students worked together to assemble the tallest tower they could.

Working in teams, the third-graders discussed their designs before they began to assemble their towers using only the index cards provided. Throughout the activity students implemented problem-solving skills to overcome obstacles that affected their original designs. 


Chippewa Takes Learning Long Distance

A cross-country connection between an Alaskan elementary school and second grade students in Mary Bernhard’s class at Chippewa Elementary School led to an eye-opening look inside a school community much different from their own. 

As part of the yearlong project, students in Bernhard’s class have been communicating with students in Alaska in an interesting way. They have been taking photos with Flat Stanley’s around their school community and sharing places they go around Long Island. Then, the Alaskan students did the same. Through this interactive project, Chippewa students learned about numerous aspects of Alaska, including climate, population, landscape and animals. 

Later this year, Bernhard plans to set up a video chat between each class for the students to meet face to face.
