This New House

First graders in Discovery Cove immerse themselves in the challenge posed to them by their STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teacher, Mr. Altamirano, to design a house.  Intense concentration and animated discussion are the order of the day as students brainstorm ideas.


Parent University

About 70 families spent an evening at Deasy to attend this year's Parent University.  Parents had the choice of several workshops including, Ways to foster your child's love of reading at home, presented by Landing teacher, David Smith; How to advocate effectively for your child at school, presented in Spanish by longtime Deasy community member, Mrs. Caballero; and Ways to oversee your child's online activity, presented by classroom teacher, Ms. Peretz.  As for children, they had the night off and enjoyed a movie in the APR.



Writer's Workshop

Learning to read one's own work aloud; learning to listen closely when others read; and learning to offer constructive responses.   Mr. Battaglia introduces these key ingredients of the writer's craft -- and cornerstones of Deasy's writing program -- to his second graders.

Inference Through Art at Deasy

The interpretation of a work of art is in the eye of the beholder – a lesson first-grade students at Deasy School experienced firsthand during a recent classroom visit with Nassau County Museum of Art representative Rebecca Hirschwerk.

The meeting was scheduled as a precursor to an upcoming field trip to the museum and gave students an up-close look at several works of art in an intimate setting.

“I love these visits because they give students an understanding of what we do,” Hirschwerk said. “They recognize us and feel comfortable.”

Hirschwerk met with students in Diane Depietro’s and Jen Russo’s classes, showing them several works of art and asking them to describe what they thought was going on in each picture. Students participated with enthusiasm, excitedly raising their hands while offering interesting explanations.

“This process makes the students feel safe because there’s never a right or wrong answer,” Principal Nomi Rosen said.

According to Rosen, the visit bolsters students’ visual thinking strategies and serves as a lead-in to close reading and textual evidence. In addition to the classroom and museum visits, students will also be asked to write about the works of art and describe what they see.
