to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. -Winnie the Pooh
This week we had expert 3rd graders pay us a visit. They shared with us what's to come next year. We also mixed all three 2nd grade classrooms together and broke into small groups to do a cooperative activity. The groups worked together to complete a puzzle without a picture to us as reference. This was a fun way of interacting with kids that might be in our next year's class.
Field Day was a blast. I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I'm pretty sore from the tug-of-war battles! A HUGE thank you to Ileene and Steven Tanabe for getting and preparing our whale-rave-green shirts and to Brooke, Kristi and Heidi for helping with making them and walking us to Little Howe.
On this last day we spent the morning creating a timeline of our 2nd grade year and reflected on all that we've done together. Then by topic, we took a vote of what some of our favorite things. Here's what came out on top:
- PROJECT: Whales
- FIELD TRIP: Whale Watching
- SUBJECT: Math
- COMPUTER PROGRAM: ST Math
- READ ALOUD: Dictionary of Ordinary Extraordinary Animals
- CLASS OUTSIDE OF ROOM 105: P.E.
- RECESS ACTIVITY: Wall Ball
