Camping in the classroom

Second grade voted on this reward back on election day and finally enjoyed a full day of pretend camping in the classroom. We fished for word wall words, we fished around the room, we read in a tent and a fort, we played Go Fish with place value and we practice math facts in the tent and fort. We even enjoyed a S’more around the campfire!

Complimittens

Second grade showcased KINDNESS today at the assembly!  We made COMPLI-MITTENS. Each mitten had a compliment from another classmate. Then we spread kindness by giving complimittens to each staff member at Letort. Some kids were readers and other delivered mittens to all the adults in the room. We are excited to see MORE kindness spread after today!!! 

SPREAD KINDNESS EVERYDAY LETORT!

First Thanksgiving

Second graders have learned a lot about the First Thanksgiving! We made and read several books and even had a reader’s theater. We also had 3 stations today featuring the Native American times: weaving place mats, stringing “jewelry”, and playing “the stick game”! Ask your child about what we learned this week. ( New Plymouth and The Pilgrim life / How the Native Americans helped them survive. )

I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!! I am VERY thankful to spend each day with your amazing children!!! xoxoxoxo
