Built in 1907, New Suffolk School educates children in New Suffolk from grades Pre-K through 6.  Within the school’s three classrooms, under the guidance of outstanding teachers, students study the general subjects of English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science. Also offered through part-time teachers are enrichment classes in Physical Education, Music, Art and Drama. 

🐸Frog Research🐸

Grade 3 spent the month of November exploring Module 2A from EngageNY, a resource for the Common Core Standards.

In this Module, we divulged ourselves into a new topic: bullfrogs.  We used Bullfrog at Magnolia Circle as our mentor text, and did a class study on the amphibians. 

Then, each student chose a frog, with unusual adaptations that help them survive in their extreme environment, to research.  We practiced pulling important information from texts, and how to properly search safe websites for more factual information.

Upon completion of their study, they demonstrated their expertise by creating either an informative poster, or diorama.  They did an exquisite job! Enjoy the photos below!
