Farmingdale's Saltzman East
Memorial Elementary School is working to encourage students to think and write creatively during
interactive reading sessions.
Third-grade teacher Mrs. DellaRocca recently read the book, Come on Rain to her students. The book recreates a summer downpour after a massive heat wave and uses rich vocabulary, creative phrases and leaves the opportunity for students to make a connection and ask questions.
The goal of the exercise is to enhance the students’ writing skills and creativity, educators said.
