Easy as PIE

Another busy day in second grade today! We learned about Author's Purpose and made a list according to the types of information that the author wanted us to know. persuade inform or entertain PIE! 

We worked with our reading buddies to sort different genres and reading material into the correct category. 

Finally we created our own PIE plate and used old book orders to cut out books and determine why the author wrote the text. It was easy as PIE!

First Day 2015-2016

First day of second grade was a success!!

We read this book...


And then wrote all about their new teacher





Then drank our "jitters" away by reading First Day Jitters and making our own Jitter Juice!






It was a hit! 18 children liked it and only 1 didn't. We graphed and tallied the number of students and had a (hot) great first day!
