Designing Their Dream House

Third graders in Ms. Capuana’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently used their mathematics lessons to design their own class dream house. The class has been studying area – length x width – and brainstormed the types of rooms they would need in their dreamhouse, such as a reading room, math room, tech room, kitchen, bathroom and creativity room. The students worked in groups to create and design their dream room. They had to determine the length, width and area of their room. When all the rooms were complete, the class added all the areas together to calculate the total area of the house. They continued the activity by writing imaginative narratives about their class dream house.

A select number of students were honored for their hard work, dedication and overall academic performance prior to the Jan. 22 board of education meeting in the Copiague School District. The student recognition awards are held only twice per year, and the Copiague Board of Education selects students who have been chosen by administrators, teachers and staff in their respective buildings for their efforts.

The awards are presented to a small number of students for their extra special accomplishments. “Being honored is a very special award in and of itself,” said Copiague School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon. “Appearing in front of your parents, friends, community and the board of education is a distinction. Publicly recognizing excellence is our way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague Schools’ programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community.”

Congratulations to the following students: Deauville Gardens East Elementary School – Zoe Espinal Castro and Elvis Sanchez Balbuena; Deauville Gardens West Elementary School – Caleb Johnson and Lael Carol Renee Quarles; Great Neck Road Elementary School – Grace Cisneros Santillana and Asma Lounici; Susan.

All Around the World for the Holidays

Third graders from Deauville Gardens East Elementary School are taking a virtual trip around the world as they learned about different countries and their holiday traditions in December.

For the holidays around the world lessons, students created their passports to get ready for their flights. They located different countries on the map and then pretended to take flight on a plane to their destination. The third grade teachers donned their pilot hats and scanned passports prior to takeoff. After reading articles, the students kept travel journals about each of the seven countries they visited. They learned about what languages they speak, holiday traditions, population and life expectancy.
