Each second grade class will have a “Book Tasting” on December 20th. We will sample different books in a cafe style atmosphere. We are still in need of a few more items to make our day a success. Please click on the link to see if you can help out.
Our class was awarded a grant to fund flexible seating for reading time and expand our classroom library. Penn Manor Education Foundation accepted my grant and gave money for me to purchase new chairs and books. We are so excited! Thank you PMEF for making this possible!
Please look for a photo of your child and another one of a parent. We will use them for a science/writing lesson next week. We are discussing physical traits in animals and how they inherit certain genes. The students will be observing themselves compared to a parent and find similarities and differences. I will tape the pictures to their project and you will get it back when we are finished. If you’d rather me not tape the picture, I can color copy it and then return it right away. Thanks for helping make our learning fun!
To celebrate John Chapman (AKA Johnny Appleseed) we made apple crisp to end our week long study of apples. It was very tasty! Thanks to all the families who helped provide the ingredients and paper products. We had a great time!
We wanted to find out which liquid best preserved an apple and kept it from getting rotten. After putting several pieces of apple in different liquids we observed them every few days and took notes. By the end we learned the vinegar was the best to preserve the apple. It forms a barrier so air can not get through to the fruit and turn it brown or get moldy.
We will be learning about apples in connection with Johhny Appleseed Day on Sept.26th. We have already started an apple experiment and we will begin a project with another experiment, tasting, and learning the apple tree life cycle. Last we will have a day of apple crisp making!
