Reading Emphasized for Remote Learners at Park Avenue

Providing children with access to literature is an important component of remote instruction at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School District. From book clubs to personalized instruction, students are able to continuing their literacy development and gain a love for reading.

Teacher Deborah Ross, who runs a popular afterschool book club for sixth grades, started a virtual book club for all Park Avenue students. Being unable to provide each reader with a copy of the book due to the school closure, Ms. Ross is using Audible, a site with access to audio books. She picked “Alice in Wonderland” as the first selection because it was appropriate for fourth, fifth and sixth graders. 

Ms. Ross created a book club site on Google Classroom, which is the platform Amityville students use for their schoolwork. Teachers spread the word about the virtual book club on their announcement boards. 

The Google Classroom site provides directions on how to access the book and also gives students a place to leave their comments about the story and its different literary elements. Ms. Ross said that sparked great conversations among students. 

Reading teacher Christine Pravata continues working with her students digitally to strengthen their literacy skills. She conducts live lessons with students and shares resources from the Wilson reading program through Google Classroom. That allows her to help her students become stronger readers and thinkers by personalizing instruction for every child.

Several students from the Amityville Union Free School District had their artwork selected for regional exhibitions. 

Two students represented the district in the 24th annual Long Island’s Best display sponsored by the Heckscher Museum of Art. Edmund W. Miles Middle School ninth grader Nicholas Brown and Amityville Memorial High School 10th grader Javier Rodriguez had their work included in this highly competitive exhibition. Only 100 pieces of student-created artwork were chosen, out of nearly 400 submissions from 58 schools in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The Long Island’s Best program challenges students in grades 9-12 to choose a work of art that is on view in the museum as inspiration for their own creative expression. 

This year’s exhibit is available for viewing online following a virtual opening on April 17. Viewers of the online gallery will also be able to vote for the winner of the Virtual Visitors Choice Award. 

More than 20 art students from the district had pieces selected for the annual Children’s Art Show, hosted by the Suffolk County Art Leaders Association. Selections were: 

Northeast Elementary School: were Tatiana Argueta, Farrah Giron, Havah Ishchayil, Samantha Ramos and Arielle Taylor.
