Accompsett Elementary School third graders learned about folk stories from around the world and even got to participate as actors on Wednesday morning.
Actor and singer Lou Del Bianco visited the school and used songs and animated storytelling to share folk stories from various countries, including Japan and Ghana.
Each folk story had a moral, such as avoiding greed or being content with what you have.
Students played roles including farm animals.
Del Bianco also told the fable, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” while offering a lesson about right and wrong.
Students learned that people create folk tales, which are then told by people “over and over and over again,” and that people learn about the world and themselves by hearing them.
Smithtown Central School District elementary school students sent a very special thank you to local heroes in advance of Thanksgiving.
The Smithtown Teachers’ Association organized a card-writing campaign to thank Suffolk County police officers from the local 4th Precinct.
The messages included students completing the sentence, “I am thankful for the police because …”
• The police make me feel safe.
• They help us get home if we are ever lost.
• They put their life on the line to help others.
• They help people that need help.
