AGM goes BAMM
AGM recently held a combination BAMM–Olweus assembly where students heard messages of the importance of math and the importance of each other.
The BAMM portion included an emoji-based them with AGM’s talented teachers turned actors playing out a skit about the frustrations of doing math. In the end the emojis built their confidence and got them excited about math. The students will do math activities at home for four weeks and after each week, they turn in their BAMM board and receive a prize for that week.
The Olweus portion of the assembly focused on the book “Only One You.” This is a story about the love between parents and their child. Sharing wisdom from one generation to another is so important and the book tells of the importance of parents sharing their wisdom that children can embrace and store away until they are needed.
To cap it off, students were asked to bring in a rock to be painted at school and placed in the courtyard on a path created and maintained by Anne Tricarico. Fifth graders will take their rocks with them when they go to JFS.
