The 3rd graders already wrote their own song! After leading them through series of questions about where they are from and their interests, they put together the song below with the help of Mr. Ricky
Who we Are
As for the 4th graders, they wrote and performed very poignant poems inspired from the Georges Ella Lyon's "I'm from" poem. They recently started writing a song about their neighborhood that we will post very soon!
The 5th graders did not stop: they wrote a song, discussed facial expressions and the components of self-presentation, visited the Brooklyn Museum where they look at portraiture including portraits of Georges Washington, Prince YaYah and much more. They most recently made their own portrait. After reviewing their museum visit, students chose items: clothing, jelwery and other props
they wanted to incorporate in their self-portrait and worked with a classmate to have their picture taken. They will soon create a frame for it.
