Mrs. Spadaro's third-grade class enjoyed some well-deserved "claytime" after finishing the Language Arts portion of PARCC. They all agreed that it felt good to pound the clay to release some stress after the test. They soon relaxed and their imaginations went into overdrive as they  created everything from yummy pretzels, ice cream cones, macarons, red-tongued snakes, golden braids, and even Kirby! ​ ​ Upon reflection,  Mrs. Spadaro's students said the test wasn't so bad after all!

It was a very exciting day for Ms. Centuori’s third grade authors and illustrators. Students worked very hard back in November to create their very own book, “The Exciting Adventures of Mr. Turkey McDonald”. Students each created a piece of the story to add to the whole-class story. The final product was published and students purchased their own copies. Over 20 copies of the book were ordered! Great job to the hard-working authors and illustrators!

Mrs.Spadaro's third-grade class enjoyed sifting through over a thousand shells from a thirty-year-old Atlantic Ocean seashell collection. Students conducted online research to identify shells and illustrated, labeled, measured and described their physical attributes such as color, shape, and texture. Students then composed a simile to describe their shells such as "Spiky like a Stegosaurus's back." Lastly, the children demonstrated repurposing by creatively decorating their clamshells. The students particularly enjoyed sorting them by types such as Conch, Cut Ribbed Ark, and Florida Prickly Cockle. It nearly filled the entire rug!

Miss Durkin's Kindergarten class completed a pumpkin math investigation worksheet utilizing math counter manipulatives to measure the height of their pumpkins and crayons to color in their size (small, medium, or large).
