In recognition of Women’s History Month in March, students at Northeast Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School District learned about the important contributions women have made throughout history.

Each pre-K and kindergarten class picked a notable female to spotlight. Students did research and decided which important facts should be included on its poster. The school was turned into a women’s history museum as the projects were hung throughout the hallways, highlighting artists, athletes, entertainers, political figures and scientists. Northeast had a museum walk on March 18 as teachers led their students around the building to read the posters.

The selections ranged from historical figures such as pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart and notable chemist and physicist Marie Curie, to contemporary figures like Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. 

Kindergartners Turn 100 (Days Smarter)

Kindergartners at Northeast Elementary School reached a milestone on Feb. 13 when they attended school for the 100th day. Upon hitting triple digits for the 2018-19 school year, students participated in a variety of 100-themed literacy and math activities.

Many children envisioned themselves about 95 years into the future by dressing up as 100-year-olds. They saw pictures of centenarians — people who have reached the age of 100 — and wrote about all they want to accomplish before turning 100.

Students colored 100-day crowns which they then wore with pride, counted 100 of different objects and imagined how they would spend $100. They practiced their math skills by counting to 100 by fives and tens.

“Llama Llama Red Pajama” was the selection for World Read Aloud Day at Northeast Elementary School. Kindergarten and pre-K classes gathered together throughout the day on Feb. 1 as teachers read the book aloud.

Kindergarten teacher Maria Lievano said that the book was chosen off of the World Read Aloud Day’s suggested list because it supports early literacy skills such as rhyming and making predictions. It also sparked discussions between students and their teachers about the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. 

Children participated in turn and talk discussions about different vocabulary words in the book, along with various writing and craft activities. Ms. Lievano said the because there are many books in the “Llama Llama” series, hopefully students would be inspired to follow the adventures of the character and keep reading.
