South Bay at Homecoming

 

 

I Read to the Principal.

The below photo shows South Bay 4th graders from Mr. Egan's class, Nick and Landon, who read to their principal today. These two youngsters are also "taking their show on the road" this week, and read to the 2nd graders in Mrs. Febbraro's class yesterday, and will be reading to the Gr. K and 1 children in Ms. Granieri's class today. The book they chose, Piggy Pie Po, has rhyming text, so the boys will be giving their little listeners an opportunity to use the picture cues to help them read the rhyming words.

Announcements

Forest Habitats

Second-graders in Debora Mahler’s class explored earthworms and pill bugs in a forest habitat. How will these two animals interact with each other?

Math Problem Solvers

First-graders in Erin Castelli’s class at South Bay learned some mathematical problem solving. The students were exploring addition problem-solving strategies to use when one of the two addends is “9.” The students discovered that by creating a “10” by borrowing “1” from the other addend, they are able to solve the number sentence much more easily.

Mapping Out a Plan

Third-graders in Melanie DeLapi’s class at South Bay Elementary School recently engaged in a collaborative social studies project. The students are learning about landforms and are applying their knowledge to create three-dimensional landform maps using a variety of materials. The students collaborated in teams to plan their map and determine which materials would be used. After they are completed, the student teams will present their maps to the class.
