Hope everyone started off their new school year with a BANG!! There is just so much to be grateful for as this year takes off. Here are just few:
- I work with a great group of people!
- I already fell in love with the original 18 little souls I was blessed with (now 17 since one already moved away)!
- I have a very supportive team and administrators!
- Students have a year experience of 1:1 (making technology integration a lot easier)!
- I LOVE my classroom!
Students Exploring Scientific Tools
For this activity, I set up 5 different stations which the students rotated while jotting down the name of the tool, making a sketch, and writing a brief description about how they used the tool in their science journal. It's always a joy to see the students get back into the groove of practicing science!
Making Personal Observations
This is another science activity where the students had to make observations about themselves. They got to trace their silhouette and draw in their clothes while paying close attention to details. They had lots of fun while learning to be good observers!
Increasing our stamina during Daily 5
Lastly, I'm proud to say that into our 3rd week these VORACIOUS readers have built 15 minutes reading stamina. I cannot recall any other group of students who could read this long right after summer vacation. Again, KUDOS to the 2nd grade teachers who implemented Daily 5 in their classroom last school year.
I can't wait to share more of what goes on in this learning classroom!
