The students learned that their hands  are an important part of their body. They learned that hands have a special structure. The students found out how many bones make up the structure of their fingers. Students sorted finger bones and created a bone puzzle of their hand to learn about the structure and functions of bones.

Second-graders at Smithtown Elementary School learned all about the art of writing stories thanks to a visit from guest author Brian Heinz on Jan. 16. Mr. Heinz, who authored books such as “The Monsters’ Test” and “Butternut Hollow Pond,” worked with the second-grade students in small groups to examine all the different elements needed to create a story. After creating a short story with each class, he did a read aloud of one of his books.
