We had a fun ending to our week. We celebrated Theodore Geisel's birthday today. He wrote by the pen name Dr. Seuss. A HUGE thank you to Ms. Heidi for making some fun snacks for us to enjoy- Cat in the Hats (strawberry and banana skewers), Green Eggs and Ham (pretzels with a little melted white chocolate and a green M&M), Bar-ba-loots (chocolate Teddy Grahams), One Fish, Two Fish (goldfish crackers) and Lorax juice boxes (complete with a removable mustache). You had us all saying, "A fan I am!"
We have spent the week learning to tell time. Second graders are expected to know how to tell time to the five-minutes on an analog clock. They also need to understand a.m. and p.m. After an initial pre-test, I am impressed how much our kids have learned during this unit. Please work with your child on telling time. If you're like me, my phone is my digital time teller. Perhaps it's time to bring out some analog watches and practice, practice, practice! Today we made some fun Cat in the Hat clocks. I didn't get a picture of one to post here. It can be a fun practice clock to work on time at home.
