  • In Science this month VEW 2nd graders have been learning about plants and their parts.
    Children have taken a close look at the functions of each part of the plant and what plants need to survive.  The second graders will be traveling to Massi’s Greenhouse in Painted Post for a firsthand experience with planting and caring for plants.
     Each student will have an opportunity to plant a flower to bring home with them.
    During reading the second graders are focusing on learning how to be responsible community members by caring for others and animals and all living things.  
    Mrs. Piraino and Mr. Brown’s classes are researching, writing and publishing ABC Books that they hope to share with family and friends.  Some topics include animals, favorite vacation spots, sports, and outer space.  Each student is learning how to research their topic using books, magazines, and the internet. They are also using the writing process and will be publishing them on their laptops using the keyboarding skills they have worked on all year.  Students will also illustrate their books using a variety of media.
