The 2nd Grade took a wonderful boat ride up the East River in a NYC Water Taxi this morning! We were able to take in NYC’s majestic skyline and many MANY bridges. Mr. Youngblut made an excellent tour guide, providing rich information!
Parent Chaperones – please feel free to send Ms. Romero any pictures you would like added to this blog post!
The Leaping Lemurs have been exploring NYC bridges in science and social studies! Today the Lemurs walked around the classroom discovering different facts about our incredible bridges.
The Leaping Lemurs read Balloons Over Broadway, the story of Tony Sarg who first invented the “upside-down puppets” that have become the trademark of the Macy’s Day Parade! Using Tony as inspiration we then made our own animal puppets using mixed-media illustrations.
