Keeping Informed: Recent Maynard Educational News
- Children's Author Visits Green Meadow Elementary - Jesse Czekaj, who wrote children's books "Hip and Hop, Don't Stop!" and "Cat Secrets," read to, rapped with, and drew for first grade students at Meadow Green Elementary. The main message the author wanted to give to the kids is that they are not much different than him, and all they need is a notebook to draw and write their stories on. He brought along a notebook with doodles he had drawn when he was their age.
- Maynard High Presents "Bye Bye Birdie" - Maynard High recently put on its musical production of "Bye Bye Birdie." The cast, which involved both veteran and rookie members, had been rehearsing for several months, while parent and community volunteers donated hours of their time working on all aspects of the show. Cindy Blanchard, who has been directing MHS productions for 18 years, chose the musical for its excellent singing and character work and the fact that it was close to heart: "Bye Bye Birdie" was the first show she and her husband had ever seen together.
- Seventh Grade Math Students Get Innovative with Sphero - Students in a 7th grade class at Fowler School are learning math and technology concepts in a new way through the use of Spheros, remote-controlled balls that students can control by entering commands into an iPod app. Eight of these Spheros were funded by the Maynard Education Foundation as a result of a grant. The Spheros help students learn such concepts as the relationship between distance, rate, and time; angles; and mean, median, and mode.

Chalk Talk: Making Non-Artistic Kids Feel Comfortable Making Art
This is a statement teachers will often hear from students who do not believe themselves to be artistic, but all students should be exposed to art and realize its importance. Teachers should make students aware that there is more to art than drawing or painting and give them flexibility when they require them to, for instance, illustrate a storybook or make a poster. With many older students and schools having access to smartphones, students may have the option of using photography--photos that they take--as their artwork. Although teachers should discourage students from simply copying and pasting clip art, technology-savvy students may use graphic design programs. Another option is for students to put together collages. Collages can be made from newspaper or magazine clippings, photographs, different textures of paper, or even objects such as leaves, seashells, or macaroni. Although the students didn't make these materials themselves, they must still put thought into why they chose certain materials and their remaining, and how to arrange the collage.
