Note From The Teachers


This month we will start a new unit of study “Water. In the Water unit, children move from thinking critically about light, darkness and shadows to an exploration of the properties and uses of water. This unit provides opportunities for children to observe objects and phenomena in their environment with increasing complexity. The children will identify various places where we can find water. They will observe, discuss and explore water in their classrooms and throughout their environment.


In this unit of study, students will learn:

  • Water is all around us.
  • Water changes depending on the temperature.
  • Some things float in water and some things sink.
  • Some items change when you put them in water.

Our focus questions will be:

  • Where can we find water?
  • What happens to water when it changes temperature?
  • What happens when we put things in water?
  • How does water help us?

STEAM with Ms. Porcelli


In February we explored Carrots and Parsnips. We learned that both carrots and parsnips are a root vegetable because they grow in the ground like the roots of a tree or plant. We made a salad with our carrots and parsnips. First we cut and placed the vegetables in a bowl. Next students added honey, fresh lemon juice and a little salt. Last, they mixed everything together, and were able to try the salad. Yum!


Books We Will Read


All The Water in The World by George Ella Lyon: Where does water come from? Where does it go?


Come on Rain! By Karen Hesse: Experience a summer downpour after a sweltering summer heat wave.


Does It Sink or Float? by Susan Hughes: Investigate the differences between objects that sink and objects that float


A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder by Walter Wick: Evaporation, condensation, capillary action, and surface tension are explained through simple text and illustrated by pictures that reveal water in its many awesome transformations.


Music with Miss. Shannon 


As part of our water unit, we are going to create water xylophones using small glass jars and colored water. We will explore the different sounds created by the water xylophones, and create our own songs using these sounds. We will also learn a variety of songs about water and sea creatures, such as “Baby Beluga”, “Down By The Bay”, and “Galumph Went The Little Green Frog”.
