Mr. Siegel loves being able to share his enthusiasm of learning with his students and one resource he uses often with his students are audiobooks. Audiobooks offer a wide array of benefits! Not only is it a great way for students to access various genres of literature but this resource also allows students to enjoy books that are above their own reading levels that may be difficult for them to read in a traditional read to self setting. He likes using audiobooks with students to teach critical listening skills, model interpretive reading, and to introduce new genres to students that students might not otherwise consider. Check out some audiobooks for yourself. Many are available for check out from the Genoa City Library www.genoacity.lib.wi.us and there are other free resources online. https://bookriot.com/2016/09/15/11-websites-find-free-audiobooks-online/ Enjoy listening! #BrookwoodsBest

Desert and Rainforests are some pretty cool terrestrial environments! At least that is what the 4th and 5th graders in Mrs. Erickson's science class think. Students worked in groups to create a 2D poster of what a desert or a rainforest looks like, including living and nonliving things, climate, and soil or sand. They then presented their posters to the class. They all did an amazing job. Students are creating terrariums, observing them, and then taking them home! #BrookwoodsBest

First graders in Mrs. Hanson’s class have been working hard writing nonfiction teaching books. Students selected topics they knew a lot about and wrote a lot of pages to teach others about their topic. As students wrapped up their first teaching books, they had the opportunity to present their books on Seesaw. Students recorded themselves reading their books and published their work on Seesaw to share with their classmates and families. #BrookwoodsBest

Students in seventh grade use a learning platform called Edmodo to make posts about literature circle novels they read. Students are able to post connections, questions, and comments to the group while reading nightly. They are also able to reply to other posts in order to answer questions and build off of the group's comments. The students are essentially able to manage and run a book club through communication within Edmodo while supporting one another in and out of the classroom with the teacher being zoned into what they are doing and discussing. #BrookwoodsBest

Mrs. Collins's 4th and 5th grade General Music students are excited to begin their ukulele unit! The instruments were funded by a combination of school funds and generous donations through Donors Choose. So far, students have learned to care for the instruments, proper holding and hand position, and strumming a simple chord. They will learn several chords over the next few months and will be able to play along to popular songs! The 4th and 5th grade music classes will have their debut ukulele performance on May 12 at the Spring Concert!

In Social Studies, Mrs. Jones' third-grade class conducted a research project about regions of the United States. Students worked in groups to find out which states belonged to which region, the vegetation, types of food, temperature, rainfall, and other information of each region. Groups then presented their region to the class. #BrookwoodsBest What can you share with us about Wisconsin?

Last week, a student in Mrs. Arshem's third grade class came to school asking if they could do something for the families affected by the apartment fires. After a class discussion, their classroom decided to collect donations for those families. Word spread and some other students pitched in too. In just four days, they collected 143 food items, a crockpot, gift card, diapers, and more! The students were able to walk to UCC to hand deliver all of their donations. It all started with one student's idea and turned into an amazing act of kindness! #BrookwoodsBest
