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.

Fourth-Graders Hard at Work

Hands-On Learning During STEM Family Night

Hands-On Learning During STEM Family Night photo

The Senior High School’s Math & Science Honor Society, National Technology Honor Society, Robotics Club and the Science Club presented the third-annual Family STEM Night on Nov. 8.

Students in grades K-8, along with their families, were invited to the STEM event to enjoy hands-on activities including games, experiments, mini-labs and robotics demonstrations. 

The Math & Science Honor Society ran science and math activities on the third floor of the high school. With close to 30 different stations, students had plenty from which to choose including activities like “Taste the Rainbow,” “Slime Time,” “Strawberry DNA” and “M&M Survival.” Brookhaven National Laboratory conducted a microscope activity and Mad Science performed dry ice experiments with small groups of students. “Be An Einstein” station let students decorate their own lab coats to wear for all their STEM activities. 

In the technology wing, the National Technology Honor Society and Robotics Club showed off their robots, 3-D printers and printing pens, and woodworking capabilities. In the lobby, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County had a small pool with marine creatures in touch tanks for the students. All of the proceeds from the evening are used toward student scholarships. 



First-Graders Cutting Up Words

First-graders in Christina Delaney's class are exploring syllabication – learning and using multiple strategies to determine the number of syllables in 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 syllable words. In the beginning, the term “ syllable" was unknown to the students. By the end, the students were able to develop their own working definition of syllabication – they perceived it as "cutting up words" into pieces.

Animal Experts

Students in grades 2 and 3 in Kelly DeCarlo’s class at South Bay recently researched an animal of their choice. After learning all they could and becoming animal experts, the students are sharing their findings with their class.

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?
