Twas the Night Before School
Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town
The parents were cheering
It was a riotous sound
By eight kids were washed
And tucked into bed
When memories of homework
Filled them with dread
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too!
New teachers, new friends…
Their anxiety grew
The parents just giggled when
They learned of this fright
And shouted – “Upstairs! –
go to bed! It’s a school night!”
Nevaeh shares her writing from today describing the state our classroom was in this St. Patrick's Day morning. Excellent job!
Grade Two had a special homework project this week. Our task was to build leprechaun traps from materials found around our homes, and complete a procedural writing piece to explain how to make them. This morning we presented our traps to the class and set them around the classroom in preparation for St. Patrick's Day. We are excited to see what Monday morning will bring! Stay tuned....
We had a fun day of activities. We are all 100 days smarter in Grade Two!
We are collecting tin coffee cans for our "Far out Robot" projects in Grade Two. Any donations would be appreciated!
We made beautiful snowflakes for the classroom windows out of markers, water and coffee filters! Check them out!
This month we're learning how to use apostrophes to show ownership. Today we had fun writing sentences that used a piece of macaroni as an apostrophe. Ayla shares her work!
Grade Two would like to thank Amanda Paul [Hannah's Mom] for serving us breakfast this morning! The breakfast program is always looking for parent volunteers. If you're interested please contact myself or Ms. Boyer at the school.
