Stopping in today to share some of the things we've been up to in second grade, a freebie, and a giveaway!
We celebrated the 100th Day of School and celebrated with 100th Day Centers. One of the centers was to build a 100 cup structure. Here are some of the kiddos with their structure.
We also celebrated Valentine's Day by making The Teacher Wife's love monster bags to hold our cards. The bags turned out so cute! We used them throughout the day to hold all of our Valentine's Day papers and projects we created, as well as our Valentine's Day cards, and they were perfect to carry home at the end of the day. The back of the bags included a little bio about the monster and the students were pretty creative. I love sneaking writing in to art projects.
We've been working on personal narrative writing and "staying in the moment." We're currently writing about a time we got hurt, and I can't wait to read my students' final drafts! Here's the template we've been using to sketch out our beginnings, middles, and ends, and write our narratives.
Feel free to grab this freebie if you'd like!
Outside of second grade, I'm excited to announce that I'm part of a new, fun collaborative blog called The Collaboration Connection.
It's a fantastic group of teachers, clipart creators, and specialists! We're kicking off the blog with a huge giveaway and would love for you to win some great products! Click on the picture to check it out!
I can't believe the end of February is drawing near! I love seeing all of the daffodils popping up around town letting me know spring is coming soon!
