Today we did a mystery skype. A mystery skype is a skype that you do with a random class. Maybe only your teacher knows there names. We had to guess where they’re from. We asked yes or no questions. Everyone had different jobs. The mystery class was from Illinois! They are also reading The Year of Billy Miller, as part of the Global Read Aloud.
The runner relays information to different groups.
Reporters photograph the event and write the post.
Today we had a visit from Mr. Chris Pendergast and Ride for Life. Our student council donate money to help find a cure for ALS, which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. To find out more about ALS or to make a donation go to the Ride for Life website.
On Career Day we went to a librarian and her name is Mrs. Bush. Mrs. Bush works at the Comsewogue Public Library. She is in charge of music, books and video games. She reads books to little kids.

Dr. Mark is an orthodontist who helps teeth get straight. He puts in braces, palate expanders and other teeth equiptment. He puts braces on gently. Dentists use a lot of tools like a mirror and drill. He takes x-rays to look at people’s teeth. We also learned that braces can be different colors! It doesn’t hurt while dentists put on and take off braces. Some things were interesting. Let us tell you some. Dentists use their hands a lot and they use drills. That is what Dr. Mark does. -written by Kyle, T.J., Kayla, Panika, Nick and Emeli
On Career Day we saw Mrs. Rella and she was a nurse. A nurse does make people healthy and she can help us if we get hurt. We learned that when you sit up straight your lungs have more room. Also, we learned that to open the door with a napkin when you leave the bathroom. -written by Ariana, Cassie, Pedro, Hannah, Brenda and Micaela
On Career Day we met an exterminator named Mr. Annicelli. Let us tell you about him. An exterminator comes to your house to exterminate bugs. Mr. Annicelli puts a poison on the floor to kill mice, rats and other small animals. A rat will commence licking his feet, and it has stepped in poison. We learned that termites eat something in the wood. Termites are attracked to light and water. Did you know worms eat themselves if they don’t have any food to eat? If you cut a cockroach’s head off they’ll both be alive for a little while. -written by Griffin, Brandon, Darien, Jordan and Ethan
On October 7, 2014 we went to a fire prevention assembly. First, we went to the trailer to practice escaping. We went inside a room and then we crawled. We felt the door knob, as it gets hotter quicker! Then the fire alarm went off. We crawled to the door and up the stairs. Some of us stood up, and we were told to never stand up or we can die because smoke is hotter than flames and more toxic than flames. Then we climbed out the window.
Next, we went to the fire truck. We got to see all of the firemen awesome, but serious tools. We learned that there is a hose on every side. The fireman kept saying a fire truck is a huge toolbox on wheels.
Thank you Terryville Fire Department.
Do you have a fire alarm and a carbon dioxide detector in your house?
We celebrated World Read Aloud Day by inviting guests to come to our class and read a favorite picture book. We also Skyped with author, Tara Lazar. She read her picture book, The Monstore to us and even answered some of our questions. Students brought in new and almost new books to donate to a local charity too. It was an exciting and meaningful day.
World Read Aloud Day is sponsored by LitWorld.com as a way to advocate for the right to read. All children and adults have the right to read. Celebrate your right to read by reading aloud to your child every day.
