Author Visit at Deasy

Children’s illustrator and author Laura Vaccaro Seeger visited Deasy School students as a kickoff to the school’s Pick a Reading Partner celebration.

During the PTA-sponsored visit, Seeger explained to students how artists see things that other people don’t and encouraged them to always pay attention to background space. She demonstrated the idea by pointing to the die cut holes she uses in her books, which lead to other pictures and words on different pages. After explaining some of the artistic techniques she uses, she read a few of her stories, including “Dog and Bear: Bear in the Chair” and “Bully.” The students, who were dressed in pajamas as part of the PARP celebration, were encouraged to keep journals to write down their ideas, sketch and create stories. They also learned how to sketch the “Dog and Bear” characters with the author’s help.  

At the conclusion of the visit, second-graders in Maura Haff’s and Marci Notice’s classes showed Seeger the artwork they had created using techniques found in her books.   

Deasy Second-Graders Create E-Books

Deasy second-graders in Michael Battaglia’s class recently wrote nonfiction books using the app Book Creator.

The students worked in groups to write a story and then transferred their writing to the app. They also learned about text features and how to create labels and captions on the app, which they incorporated into their projects. The class really enjoyed shooting and inserting video files and recording audio of their writing. Students wrote about holiday and winter topics, such as “How to be Kind During the Holiday Season,” How to be Safe in the Snow” and “Games We Can Play in the Winter.” Each of their books were required to have a cover page and table of contents. 

According to Mr. Battaglia, the English language arts lesson gave students an opportunity to practice their reading fluency and writing, as well as get more familiar with the apps on the school’s iPads. To see the students’ creations, click on the following link:


Deasy Kindergartners Make Gingerbread Men


Deasy kindergartners in Christine Maddaloni’s class recently created delicious gingerbread men to gift to a special member in their family.

The gingerbread activity highlighted the students’ recent study of holidays in social studies that concluded with students writing their own books.  

First, the students practiced how to make the shapes of a gingerbread man using play dough. Mrs. Maddaloni gave step-by-step instructions on how to roll the play dough and how big to make each piece. After students grasped the technique, they washed their hands and were ready for the gingerbread dough. Once they finished making the body, students used raisins to make the face and buttons. Class-parent volunteers took the cookies home and baked them for the students. Once they returned to the class, the students placed his or her cookie into a decorated paper bag for a family member.

After the students made their cookies, they enjoyed reading “The Gingerbread Man” with their teacher. The students then learned how to write books   using Writing Workshop, a new program initiated by the district in partnership with Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project.

Deasy Students Learn About Voting

Deasy School second-graders had the opportunity to meet City of Glen Cove mayoral candidates, current City of Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello and Councilman Tim Tenke. The students developed questions to ask each candidate and voted the following day based on the knowledge they gained. Students learned about the role of the mayor, along with the democratic voting process.
