As students at East Quogue Elementary School neared the completion of their unit on fiction stories in writer’s workshop, students had the opportunity to edit their work with peers.
In social studies, students have started to learn about the Dutch settling in New Amsterdam before beginning the next unit about colonial New York. In addition to the students’ study on colonization, they participated in a STEAM activity where they designed a colonial washing machine.
East Quogue Elementary School students in Penni Russo’s Advanced Band have recently been working hard to tackle their concert songs and the songs they will be performing at the annual tree lighting celebration this December.
Additionally, our fifth and sixth grade Advanced Drummers have had full attendance and full participation as they utilize the new timpani and bass drum, along with the other auxiliary percussion instruments that bring the holiday song selections to life.
As part of other music activities, students in Kimberly Clemensen’s Music class explored music and dance.
