5th graders from Ms. Gerver’s class at West Side love doing computer coding challenges! Media Specialist, Ms. Fraiberg, teaches 4th-6th graders twice a week at West Side, along with Ms. Diehl who teaches KidOYO at Lloyd Harbor. Third graders are excited to begin in January; Ms. Fraiberg shared, “The kids love it! Sometimes the focus is so intense that it is completely silent; other times kids will help others nearby, even while social distancing.”
Ms. Thompson’s 3rd graders at West Side played a game called Zap! The students worked in teams to solve math word problems, and cooperatively explained and reviewed their solutions. Teams that solved the problem correctly got to send one player up to pick Zap cards out of the hat to collect points. They can collect as many points as they like, but they need to watch out for the Zap!

We are Bucket Fillers! At West Side, Ms. Baratta’s 5th graders listened to the book Have You Filled A Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud. As part of building class community and SEL (Social Emotional Learning), School Psychologist, Ms. Latham and Ms. Baratta had a discussion with the students about how we all have invisible buckets and that we can be a bucket "filler" for others by thinking positive thoughts, being caring and saying nice things to others.
Ms. Manning’s 4th graders at West Side, completed their first writing unit on realistic fiction. Students planned and wrote stories with character, setting, problem and solution.

I'm so proud of their creativity and hard work!”
