Valentines for Veterans

Students at South Grove Elementary school participated in the Town of Oyster Bay’s “Valentines for Veterans Initiative.” Student Council members along with third grade students spent their recess time to support this project. Student Council members made beautifully crafted Valentine cards with stickers and included words of appreciation. Third graders wrote letters to veterans thanking them for all they have done for our country. Some letters included poems and others shared a bit about themselves. Third graders spent a second recess period making origami hearts to go along with the letters. The students received a certificate for their participation.

Read Across America Day

On Friday, March 2nd, the Kindergarten and First Grade Students at South Grove Elementary School participated in Read Across America Day while celebrating and honoring Dr. Seuss’ Birthday. The day began with all students taking a Reader’s Oath and singing Happy Birthday to the beloved children’s author and illustrator – Theodor Seuss Geisel. Every student then got dressed as a “little cat in the hat” by wearing the classic red and white patterned hat that they colored. Throughout the day, the students loved hearing the rhythm and rhyme and seeing the creative characters as their teachers read Dr. Seuss books aloud. The teachers focused on one of the many famous quotes by Dr. Seuss – “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” The students participated in centers that had a Dr. Seuss theme. The teachers read aloud as the students learned about Theodor Seuss Geisel and how he became an author and illustrator. It was a fun-filled day at South Grove!

The Kindergarten and First Grade students had a 100th Day celebration on Tuesday, Feb. 13th. The students and faculty decided to dress as if they were 100 years old. The boys and girls also wore special hats that were in the shape of 100. The students participated in a celebration as they each held a number through 100. They sang songs, counted by 1s, 5s and 10s.. They each came up to the display, proudly holding their number to place on the 100 display. Our Mascot, Grover also participated in the festivities.The students at South Grove collected 100 objects and thought of many creative ways to display them. Some decided to turn 100 gems into a giant ring, 100 stickers into a smiley face or 100 legs for a caterpillar. 100 straws were even turned into a robot. The students shared their special 100th day project on the day of the celebration. It has been a fun filled 100 days at South Grove!

Peer Mediators

The South Grove DASA Coordinators have been "pushing into" our K-5 classes to facilitate developmentally appropriate/relevant discussions about topics pertaining to DASA while emphasizing the importance of prosocial behaviors school wide. In grades K and 1, under the supervision of Mrs. Mancuso and Dr. Epstein, the Peer Mediators read the story Do Unto Otters, A Book About Manners, by Laurie Keller, which was followed by a question and answer session.

Literary Cafe

How exciting! Kindergartners engaged in an interactive, technological and literary-based club?! Who knew our school's youngsters could be so talented, dedicated and focused? Well, we did!

In early February, the Literary Cafe closed shop for the first graders (who performed extreme high-quality work) and opened its doors to South Grove's kindergarteners. Kindergarten club members began this new journey with such enthusiasm as they entered Mrs. Stottler's room during recess, grabbed a Literary Cafe menu and began ordering their favorite literary activity. While the use of Chromebooks and the various activities offered on the Literary Cafe's Google Classroom is a popular choice, Mrs. Stottler was very impressed to see that these engaged students also chose options such as reading, writing and listening to stories!

We are looking forward to watching these youngsters continue to excel and dabble in the various literary-based opportunities provided throughout the club. The Literary Cafe is ready to challenge these new kindergarten club members!
