Museum 11/15/09

I am not sure who was more excited about our first field trip: the staff or the students! The Jersey City Museum planned a program for Kindergarten and First Grades that included a tour of landscape paintings and a short discussion about Hudson history. Afterwards, the First Grade created their own landscape paintings and Kindergarteners created landscapes out of paper products. Exposing students to art appreciation by visiting museums or listening to a musical performance is as beneficial to their education as teaching language arts, math, and science. The students are hoping for a visit to the Museum of Natural History in the Spring!

 

On Friday, Mrs. Gohar and Ms. Rivera’s First Grade performed a play, The Water Cycle, for Ms. Ducore’s Kindergarten. The play was a very creative rendition on the life of a drop of water! Along with understanding better the science behind the cycle, they practiced stage prescience!

We are proud to report that students raised $66.52 for UNICEF. By participating in this community service project, they are developing an awareness of giving to others.
