This past week, we have been learning about the Pilgrims and their trip over to the New World on the Mayflower. We learned that there were 102 passengers and 30 crew members on the 90 foot boat. They traveled in cramped conditions for 66 days across the Atlantic ocean. We measured out a small area of the classroom that was our Mayflower for the day.  We had morning meeting, reading, writing, snack, math and guidance in this little space. The students had a blast spending the day on the Mayflower.

First Week of School

We have has a wonderful first week back to school. The students are settling back into the rhythm of the school day and the expectations we have for second graders. It has been great getting to know all of our classmates and learning to work as a team.  One of the most exciting moments of the week was when the class learned that our new math workbooks were in color! It is the little things that brings us joy.

First Day of Second Grade!

We had a wonderful first day of second grade! The students settled into their new classroom quickly and were excited to start the new year. We had fun exploring the classroom with a scavenger hunt. The students learned the layout of the room while connecting with their new classmates. The school has a new gazebo this year. The students learned all the expectations about this amazing outdoor classroom. We look forward to using it at recess and having class outside on cooler days. Today was a great way to start off the new year! Welcome to second grade.
