Last week in Library class, Kindergarteners learned how to use shelf markers properly to choose books off the shelves!  Mrs. Mainardi sang the Shelf Marker song to help teach them. To the tune of the hokey pokey. "You put the shelf marker in, you take the book right out.  You open up the pages to see what it's about.  You do the booky-looky to see if it's just right.  That's what it's all about!!"

So much awesome learning happening at Starry! Here are some Kindergarten students investigating their "Class Tree". As part of the science unit, students learn and label parts of a tree and also study how the tree changes throughout the year!

Each week in 2nd grade, there is a "Story of the Week". Along with the story, there are vocabulary words that go along with it. During reading time, classes create motions or actions to go with each vocab word and they practice then throughout the week!

First Graders are also exploring math tools they will use for the rest of the year! Here they are using math templates that will help them learn shapes and playing a math game called "Bunny Hop" to explore the number line.

On Tuesday, 2nd graders class worked collaboratively to play a game called "The Number Line Squeeze". This game allowed students to practice familiarizing themselves with an important tool they will be using throughout 2nd grade. By working together, students were able to use language such as "greater than" or "less than" to understand the sequence of numbers and develop their number sense.
