Using Multiplayer Classroom Games to Encourage Learning:
Mrs. Karen Sanchez has implemented collaborative classroom quiz games to engage students in her Spanish classes in an exciting, new way.
Quizlet Live and Quizizz are interactive games that are designed to provide an active and fun approach to class material. Students compete in real time, either individually or on teams, for the highest score on subjects being studied.
“Since I don't use a textbook for my courses, these activity websites allow me to easily customize them to our curriculum,” Mrs. Sanchez said. “I have used them for everything from basic vocabulary and grammar to sentence structure and even literary analysis.”
Both games allow users to search from existing sets made by educators on a wide variety of subjects and topics, ...

South Seneca UPK Class Makes Christmas Cards for Senior Citizens:
Ms. Quincy Townsend and Ms. Victoria Converse’s UPK class has been hard at work making Christmas cards to send to three different senior living communities.
The 16 students in class were able to make more than 150 cards to be delivered to Brookdale Senior Living in Corning, Verona Village in Ovid and St. Mary Apartments in Baldwinsville. Each of the three communities is home to family members of South Seneca staff.
"Making the Christmas cards was a chance for us to give our students an authentic learning experience while also instilling the importance of kindness and giving during the holiday season," Victoria Converse said.
This activity gave the young students a chance to spread some Christmas cheer while also practicing their fine motor skills. ...

South Seneca students in the extended day program recently put on a production of “The True Story of Humpty Dumpty.”
The cast of the play was made up of 13 students from second and third grades, most of whom had never had a chance to participate in a theater production before. Students prepared for the show with the help of Andrea Puls and Kristin Parry, who are co-drama instructors for the extended day program.

The play was performed in the auditorium at the South Seneca Middle School/High School for an audience full of friends and family.
