Ways we learn

Reading

If Then Unit:  Growing Expertise in Little Books:  Reading for Information:  In this unit, our readers find ways for their books to become their teachers so that they can learn ideas and information about the world.  They also ask themselves the question, can books get me to wonder about things?

K/1-15 Celebrating Black History Month

For the past few months we have celebrated the achievements of many African Americas. One person that we gravitated to was the musician Stevie Wonder. For our final project we decided to make harmonicas as a fun activity.

Culmination of our Transportation Unit

Our Pre-k friends created a mural of all the different modes of transportation we learned and presented it to our peers. We also had fun going on a virtual field trip to the New York Transit Museum and learned about public transportation in the community.
