In October 2012 the East Windsor Education Association awarded Pamela Babut (a second grade teacher at the Broad Brook Elementary School)
a $790.00 grant to develop activity units for her students. Pamela said ďI created and began using these activity bags a few years ago to provide
an opportunity for students and their families to work together to review skills learned in the classroom in a fun wayĒ.
Each activity bag contains a variety of leveled books, math games and journal responses related to the theme of each particular activity bag.
In the course of the year, each student will have the opportunity to work with each activity bag.
The EWEF felt that Pamela had developed way of making the core subjects of reading, writing and mathematic more
engaging and fun for the students and the EWEF was glad that the Pamelaís activity bags also involved parents and family in the studentís class work.
The EWEF is please we were able to help Pamela and her second grade class this year.
