Puppet show

CityParks PuppetMobile Presents "Little Red's Hood"

little red

 

Annual Community Event in our school yard!

For the past five years, neighboring schools have been our guests during this wonderful performance. Our families, staff and students bring towels and folding chairs and make a picnic during this show. We have seen Sleeping Beauty, Bessie’s Big Show, Cinderella Stories from Around the World, Rumplestiltskin and other classic and modern fairy tales. This year we look forward to a version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Little Red’s Hood is a fresh retelling of the classic “Little Red Riding Hood” tale updated with a modern sensibility that will appeal to kids. The production features a dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.

Like many of today’s children, Little Red is a smart, young city slicker who is too focused on her smartphone to notice her surroundings. Wulfric is a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth. When Little Red travels from New York City to the country to deliver some cupcakes to her Grandma, she encounters a colorful cast of characters as Wulfric the Wolf tries to head her off at the pass.

Little Red’s Hood is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre’s Artistic Director Bruce Cannon and written by Liam Hurley.

just right books

Choosing Just Right Books

Parents of our Kindergarten students learned all about “Just Right Books” in a workshop on Tuesday, January 14, 2014. The kindergarten teachers presented a Power point to the families outlining the expectations we have for students in literacy. They learned how to choose a book that is “Just Right,” what the characteristics are of each level book, and what the expectations are for reading as children go through each year, on each grade. Students are looking forward to filling their “baggies” and getting their book stickers.

Queens Botanical Gardens

Planting Seeds and Trees – A CASA Grant Partnership with Queens Botanical Gardens

Our PS 174 families are enjoying both Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings in the Spring, learning about the plants we need to assure that our lives are healthy and bountiful! From a generous CASA Grant from the New York City Council and our Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, PS 174 families are spending extra time in school. During the spring months, groups of students and teachers as well as students and their families are enjoying lessons from educators from the Queens Botanical Gardens. They are learning about how plants grow, what plants we eat, and how trees and plants grown through the seasons. These family/child activities include planting seeds, touring the changing seasons of growth on our school grounds, and enjoying tasty roots, stems, leaves and seeds.

Pumpkin Patch

PS 174 Pumpkin Patch

Throughout history, families looked forward to the autumn season, enjoying many fruits of the harvest. In October at PS 174, we are celebrating by picking and sorting apples and pumpkins! Our PreK and K classes are looking forward to their own “Pumpkin Patch” in our school garden, and this year for the first time are enjoying Granny Smith apples from our very own tree on Ellwell Crescent. Classes in Grade 1 are planning their visits to the Queens Farm for hayrides and pumpkin picking. Every October, our first community service event takes place with the Wonder Walk for the March of Dimes. Kindergarten families lead the way for this annual “Pumpkin Walk”and fund raiser.

lego learning

Do you remember building with LEGOs, those interlocking red, yellow, green, and blue blocks? I would bet that you did not realize the important math skills such as sorting, scale, fractions, proportions, ratios and area - that you were learning. We are thrilled to be able to offer this hands-on, fun and engaging tool for learning for our students. Imagine learning math and engineering concepts – building an entire community complete with structures and transportation. We are not talking about one LEGO kit, but of 12 large, full bins brimming with block, flats and bricks, as well as parts for vehicles, accessories for storefronts, and “people” to drive the trucks and trains, the cars, helicopters and planes.

We are thrilled to have received over $2,000.00 worth of these LEGO kits from two different Donors Choose proposals that were fully funded. The excitement that these remarkable building blocks generate demonstrates just how appropriate they are in supporting not only our children’s problem solving ability, but also in sparking their creativity,
