Dear Sheehan Families,
For the past three years, Sheehan Librarian, Ann Tenreiro has hosted and run book clubs during lunch with our students. She has started her first round of book clubs for the year with our 5th graders reading The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm. Many families may know the author for her two graphic novel series Babymouse and Squish! There was so much interest from our 5th graders that Mrs. Tenreiro had to split the large group into two sections. Our students love to share their favorite passages at book club and it is a great way to recall events, make connections and generally enjoy the book as a collective group.
The bonus for reading The Fourteenth Goldfish is that each student gets to count this book toward the 5 minimum requirement for voting in the 2017 Massachusetts Children Book Award in early spring. It's so much fun and great way to share a love of reading! We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Tenreiro sharing her love of reading with our students.
In Kindergarten, all three of our classes are partnering with the Westwood High School Early Childhood Class directed by Pauline Chaloff. The primary expectation of the Early Childhood Class is for their students, juniors and seniors to observe a live teaching classroom! We are fortunate to have 6 seniors, some former Sheehan students, spending 45 minutes to one hour a few days per week observing a Kindergarten lesson and journaling and reflecting on their time spent in our K classrooms. It is wonderful to partner with the HS and help inspire some of these HS students to become our future educators.
Have a wonderful week and enjoy this beautiful weather!
