MEXICO

For the past two weeks we have been learning about Mexican culture. We have discussed music, food, education, clothing, celebrations, languages and the arts. We have learn there are many differences between the Mexican culture and our own, but we also found similarities. The students have had a wonderful time exploring and creating projects that taught us about the aspects of culture. Next week we'll be learning about African culture!

Roll-a-Square

Last week we learned a new place value game called Roll-a-Square. The students roll two dice and add that number of cubes to their 100's grid. The student are thinking about numbers in multiples of tens and singles. The students worked very well with each other and were showing great sportsmanship.

Snow Motion

Snow motion has been cancelled for 2/10 due to weather.

For the past several weeks, second graders have been going to Cochran's for P.E. class. The students have been LOVING this wonderful opportunity that they have been given. How fortunate are we to have Mrs. Cochran working with us? I have attached some pictures from out adventures. Thank you Mr. G for making this possible!

100th Day and Valentine's Day

Monday was our 100th day of school. One activity we did was the 100 book challenge. The students had 30 minutes to try and read 100 short books. The classroom was silent as the children read book after book. When the time was up, the children had surpassed our goal and read 130 books! Valentine's Day was a great celebration as well. The students made their own mailbox bags and had a chance to pass out the valentines they brought in. You could really tell how much this class cares for each other. This has been a very special week already.
