Class 163 participated in a "Read the Room Vocabulary Hunt" as a thematic/spring literacy activity. The vocabulary words were posted around the room while students had to search for the words that matched those on their list. Each student was assigned a sheet, and once they matched all the words on their own list, they'd switch sheets with a friend and continue the hunt. Great job, everyone!

As part of Class 112's study of Black History Month, the students worked to recreate Crum's Saratoga Chip, learned about Latimer's improvement to the electric light, and read The Patchwork Path which told the story of how pictures can be used to give messages or tell a story. They learned about Alma Woodsey Thomas and created artwork in the spirit of her artistic style. Hope you enjoy looking at the creative process of Class 112!

Class 127 conducted a science experiment with apples. The students placed apples in water, vinegar, lemon juice, or an empty bowl, and waited certain amounts of time to see how each liquid affected the fruits' appearance. Students made predictions on which liquid would make the fruits' appearance change the most. Awesome science experiment!

Hawkswood students hard at work conducting a science experiment on how liquids can change a solid. Using teddy grahams, the class placed a cookie in each of the following bowls - one that had water, another vinegar, a third option was oil, and finally, a bowl with no liquid. The class made predictions on which liquid would affect the cookie the most, and after 5 minutes, each student checked the cookies. After an additional 5 minutes, the cookies were checked again for any changes. After the experiment, the cookies were touched to feel for any changes that couldn't be seen. Excellent work by all!

The students in 112 learned about corn in science. The first week, they learned about the physical change that turns a corn kernel into popped corn and compared and contrasted making popcorn on the stove and in the microwave. The next week, they learned about mass (that matter takes up space) and volume (the amount of space an object takes up). In the final week, they investigated whether or not you could build a structure using popcorn. This was a a fun and tasty STEAM activity (science, technology, engineering, art and math). Great job to all!

The rainbow photo was a project Class 163 did about "World Kindness Day" which is celebrated on November 13, 2021. They watched a brief video about a character who was making unkind choices throughout his day. Students decided on kind alternatives to the choices. When watching the rest of the video, the class found out that he actually did decide to make kinder choices. Then, they briefly touched upon the "Be a Rainbow in Someone Else's Cloud" poem by Maya Angelou; each student made a cloud, switched with a classmate, and created their rainbows in someone else's cloud. Each craft is a combination of efforts by two classmates. What a wonderful job, all!

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month! According to an article from the Rutgers School of Public Health, in April of 2012, New Jersey became the 14th state in the country to adopt policies establishing it as an Employment First state. According to the State Employment Leadership Network (SELN), which is comprised of state intellectual and developmental disabilities agencies: Employment First is a state-level approach to disability services. It means that employment is considered the option of choice for citizens with disabilities, rather than placement in a sheltered workshop, a day habilitation program, or another segregated or non-inclusive setting. Hawkswood School celebrates our young adults who work within school and out in the community. Wonderful work by all!
