Wow! My students went above and beyond with their Leprechaun Traps! Excellent work! We have them all set in the classroom so stay tuned to see what happens. We are working on wonderful writing pieces to go along with this project. They will be all set to show you at Parent Teacher Interview Day. Thanks to Keagan for the delicious shamrock cookies and a very Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all from Grade Two!
We had a blast using licorice and marshmallows instead of base 10 blocks to help us add today.
This week we're learning about antonyms. Since we're all dreaming of nicer weather we thought we'd make an ANTonym picnic for our bulletin board.
We had a fun filled day in Grade Two. Here are some photos of our Valentine Literacy and Numeracy activities, along with some shots of our fantastic class party. Thank you to all parents for the thoughtful Valentines and treats. We really enjoyed them. Grade Two sends you all their love!
Myla and Aubrie have completed an independent project this week. Their task was to follow online steps to complete a webquest on Jan Brett's famous book "The Mitten." They researched hibernation, adaptation and migration of animals in the winter months. They also learned about the characters and setting of the book, and even learned how to draw their very own hedgehog [one of the characters.] Here they are displaying their posters which are now hanging in the hallway to share with everyone. Make sure you stop to check them out!
We enjoyed a Groundhog Day craftivity on Friday which involved predicting whether or not the groundhog would see his shadow today. The results are in and it turns out that only three of us [Keagan, Ms. Stephanie and I] predicted correctly that there are 6 more weeks of winter. Stay warm everyone!
