Report from The Brooklyn Charter School

Mr. Ricky and Ms. Marie started working with students at the Brooklyn Charter School a few weeks ago:

The 3rd graders already wrote their own song! After leading them through series of questions about where they are from and their interests, they put together the song below with the help of Mr. Ricky

Who we Are

We’re gonna tell you

Who we are x4

We live in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Danberry

Some of us like Macaroni and cheese

Some of us love fried chicken

Some of us like Hip hop and R&B

Some of us like Rap

Some of us were born in New York

Some of us were born in another state

Some of us were born in another country

That’s who we are x4

We’re gonna tell you

Who we are x4

Some of us like to go to the beach

Some of us like to go to Connecticut

Some of us like football

Few of us like track running

Few of us like to be a designer

Few of us like to be a scientist

Three of us don’t like Macaroni and cheese

Most of us don’t like veggies

Some of us breath to feel better

Some of us throw thigns to feel better

That’s who we are x4

We’re gonna tell you

Who we are x4

As for the 4th graders, they wrote and performed very poignant poems inspired from the Georges Ella Lyon’s “I’m from” poem. They recently started writing a song about their neighborhood that we will post very soon!

The 5th graders did not stop: they wrote a song, discussed facial expressions and the components of self-presentation, visited the Brooklyn Museum where they look at portraiture including portraits of Georges Washington, Prince YaYah and much more. They most recently made their own portrait. After reviewing their museum visit,  students chose items: clothing, jelwery and other props

 they wanted to incorporate in their self-portrait and worked with a classmate to have their picture taken. They will soon create a frame for it.
