Last month, kindergarteners at Sea Cliff Elementary School had a Thanksgiving Celebration that included the shared reading of poems and songs as part of balanced literacy. In preparation for the special day, the students explored different ways of using cranberries like the pilgrims long ago. They made cranberry sauce to give as gifts for their families with decorative cloth called muslin.
But that is not all - the kindergarten classes made cornbread, applesauce, and popcorn which they enjoyed at the Thanksgiving celebration. Additionally, the students engaged in weeks of interactive writing which resulted in the completion of their “I am Thankful” books to share with their peers and at home with their families.
Eighth-grade ELA and social studies teachers at Robert M. Finley Middle School in Glen Cove recently organized a day of cultural sharing entitled Diversity Day. Held in the school’s mini center, the event served as a culmination to the students’ studies on immigration. The gathering included presentations research projects as well as a feast of foods from different countries around the world.
First- and second-graders at Deasy Elementary School have been studying the natural environments in and around Glen Cove, literally learning the lay of the land – and water, for that matter.
The Glen Cove High School Music Department announced that eight students have been selected to participate as All-State musicians in the 78th Annual New York State School Music Association Winter Conference in Rochester, on Dec. 5-8. Additionally, one student has been named to the All-National Choir, the first student at Glen Cove High School to achieve this honor.
On Nov. 4, seventh-graders got a special treat when guest speaker Captain Wile, a pilot with Southwest Airlines (and a father in the community) visited North Shore Middle School to teach about the Physics of Flight.
As part of the forces unit in science, the students eagerly listened to Captain Wile as he explained how airplanes fly by utilizing the Four Forces of Flight including lift, gravity, thrust, and drag. Captain Wile discussed Bernoulli’s Principle and
Newton’s Law in relation to flying Boeing 737 airplanes.
