Through generous PTO funding, Kat Gillies joined our second graders for Arctic animal sculptures. Kat is an expert at getting all of us into our artistic groove. You will have a chance to see your child's amazing finished product when you come in on the 30th.
As you can see below, these leprechauns are hard at work.
The children are sharing their Arctic Tri-Fold research projects with each other.
We started our character reading unit this week. To get us into the zone small groups read the lovely Ted Hughes story, How Elephant Became. This story delves into the powerful question of what it means to know yourself. We met Bombo, who finds that to 'become' requires finding out who you really are and what you are good at doing. Complicated work to be sure.
Listen to your children answer some of the critical thinking questions on Seesaw.
