Community Helper Day at Gribbin

Gribbin students in Jennifer Russo’s first-grade class shared their newly acquired knowledge of community helpers with families and guests.

In costume, students read sections of the nonfiction books they authored, answered questions for guests and gave their opinion about their community helper. Guests had the opportunity to view students’ paintings, clay models, books and a class mural. In addition to students sharing what they had learned, they had a special visit from three local community helpers who shared information about their jobs and answered the students’ questions.

Students can continue researching at home by using the internet database PebbleGo and visiting the Glen Cove Public Library.
