Some BCEL students enjoyed a special visit from a few staff members from the Center of the Arts today. These students were able to explore the steps of invention as they created, innovated, collaborated, and problem-solved through these amazing activities inspired by the stories of Andrea Beaty. Students explored the scientific process as they experimented like Ada Twist, engineered a flying machine like Rosie Revere, and worked as a team to construct a bridge just like Iggy Peck and his classmates! What a fun and exciting way to make self to text connections and to connect with these experts from our community!

BCEL's second grade students had the chance to do some public speaking this week through an authors share event! Parents were treated to the published works of their students as they bravely got up on stage to read their pieces! We are so incredibly proud of all the hard work that went into this event. Students planned, drafted, revised, and published their writing in order to be ready for authors share. Thank you 2nd grade teachers for all the work put into this experience for our kids and our families!

This week BCEL was filled with so many events and activities! We were feeling the love of Valentine's Day!! Ms. Terrill, one of our Young Fives teachers, organized a school-wide community service project. She, along with our other amazing classroom teachers, had BCEL students make Valentine's Day cards for the residents of Riverside. Ms. Terrill delivered our cards and art projects on Wednesday so that the residents could receive something special on a day filled with love! We sure do love to spread the love :) Thank you, Ms. Terrill, for organizing this project!

Mrs. Napoli and Mrs. Dopp's 2nd-grade students at BCEL have had a blast sledding this week! Being out in nature releasing some energy before persevering on their winter benchmark assessments! Research shows that when kids can get outside in their natural environment increases performance on structured tasks in the classroom. Mrs. Napoli and Mrs. Dopp loved watching their students naturally live in the moment allowing the moment to be what it was; magical, silly, and adventurous!
