Snack and a Story



Today we got to have snack time outside and I got to read to them which was perfect

 



 We had popcicicles from Nicholas and finished another class read aloud chapter book: Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar. He has a a whole series that follows this school plus a lot of other stories like the book: Holes (one of my favorites)

Geometry

This week we began our geometry unit. It can be pretty tricky for 2nd graders because of the new vocabulary. 

I brought my son's Magformers in the classroom this week to use for centers and they were a hit! 

 

They are magnetic blocks that begin as flat shapes but can be connected to become 3-D shapes. These were so much fun but also great for them to have a hands-on way to understand geometry. 

 
    

 
 

Cursive

We finished our lowercase letters! Before we begin capital letters I thought we needed a bit more practice with Shaving Cream!!! What a fun surprise.

Weaving

This week we are reading the Narrative NonFiction story: The Goat In The Rug. It's the story of how a Navajo woman used her goat's wool to weave a rug. The fun part is that it is told from the point of view of the Goat. The kids really enjoyed the story and we took a few minutes to learn how to weave our own "rugs." It was a great first day back!

Adoption Day

Today we adopted new pets...PEEPS!!

First we choose our new pet
 


Next we sang a few songs and created their birth certificate 

 


 
 
 

We took care of them through the day and even got Mrs. Giglio to babysit when we went to the Gym. Each table had to "pay"  her for her time! 

 

Happy Families!
