First Grade Students at OFRS choose to write, illustrate and publish books during their free time! We are so proud of them for taking the initiative to express themselves through story telling. All year they have been learning how sentences are constructed and how to write simple stories with characters, setting, a problem, events and a solution. They are really taking off as authors!

Fourth grade students have been studying how the influence of Native American groups, including the Lenni-Lenape culture, is manifested in different regions of New Jersey. Today they were able to explore clothing, tools, animal pelts and other artifacts to deepen their understanding. Thank you to the PTO for providing this presentation.

First Graders at OFRS are measuring with paper clips. They discover how to use objects and nonstandard units to measure distances and make conclusions about why it’s important to use objects of the same size and shape when measuring. We love to see our mathematicians hard at work! πŸ“πŸ–‡πŸ“Ž
