Section 4-1 and Their Published Books Mrs. Domiano’s 4th Grade ELA Classes Publish Books
Mrs. Domiano’s 4th grade students learned the steps of the writing process, including publishing.  First, they discussed topics. Section 4-1 chose "If I Ruled the World", and Section 4-2 chose "My Future Career."  Next, each student wrote and submitted a rough draft about their topic. Then, one-on-one meetings were held to discuss the stories and the editing process started. This was followed by a practice page, then a "real" page that would be submitted to the publishing company. The next step was to create illustrations to match the stories, a cover page, and a back page.  Finally, the completed pages were sent out for publishing. The students love seeing their work in a book, and enjoy reading each other’s stories.

Simple Gifts Musical Group Simple Gifts Performs at Solomon Elementary
Solomon Elementary Students were entertained by 2 fantastic musicians, Linda Littleton and Karen Hirshon, from the musical group Simple Gifts. These two women easily switched between 12 musical instruments. The duo introduced the students to a wide array of new musical instruments including the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, guitjo, recorders, bowed psaltery, hammered dulcimer, baritone fiddle, spoons, and even percussion instruments.  They performed an impressive collection of ethnic folk styles from Irish jigs to Gypsy melodies.  Their enthusiasm and love for music was contagious.
