How to Make Bubbles

Ms. Eustace and Ms. Bonadonna’s kindergarten class read, How To Make Bubbles by Erika L. Shores as part of their unit on learning to write How-To books.  The class then followed the steps and tested out their bubble mixture using a variety of tools found in school and at home.

Pi Day

We learned about π (Pi) Day from a video on BrainPOP, read selected text answered literal and inferential questions, wrote Pi-Ku poems.  Students also measured Oreo cookies, peppermint patties, and pies to find the diameter, radius, and circumference of the food items (incorporating the use of π, 3.14, to calculate mathematical answers).

School Closing

Due to expected severe weather conditions, all New York City public schools will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, March 14, 2017. After-school programs, adult education, YABC programs, and PSAL activities are also cancelled tomorrow.

DOE central and field offices will remain open. We urge New Yorkers to exercise caution when going outside and avoid traveling.
