geoDuring a study of lines, angles, and two-dimensional geometry, third graders in Room 213 worked on an interdisciplinary math, writing, and art project. Students began by drawing "Geocreatures" using different types of lines, angles, and polygons. Next they wrote a detailed description of their Geocreatures using geometry vocabulary and sensory language. Each student then exchanged his or her description with a classmate and attempted to recreate the Geocreature based solely on the peer's written description, without being able to see the original picture. The results were beautiful and mathematical! 




magicianRoom 221 (4th grade S.E.I.) celebrates birthdays once a month. This year our monthly birthday celebrations are a bit more exciting. Sergey Koenig brought his magic kit and performed a few tricks for the class. He asked children celebrating their birthday to be his assistants. The entire class was amazed by his fantastic magic and commanding performance. What a creative way to practice speaking in English!
