Yesterday, students were challenged to work in pairs to create a Spaghetti Tower. Their goal was to build the tallest tower they could, that would hold a large campfire marshmallow for 10 seconds without toppling over. However, they had constraints! Students were only allowed 3 feet of masking tape, a limited number of dry spaghetti noodles, and 30 minutes to complete their design. All of the second graders did a fabulous job, and every tower was able to hold the marshmallow for 10 seconds.
We had a great first day in second grade. We made banners about ourselves in reading, constructed spaghetti towers during math, and launched a film canister rocket for science. Also, our class started using ClassDojo to encourage one another other to be bucket fillers! Excited for Friday!
I am thrilled to be teaching second grade at Martic! We are all going to have a great year and accomplish wonderful things together. Below is a link to my Second Grade Welcome Letter. I can’t wait to meet everyone .
