I hope you had a wonderful vacation! I spent the weekend in Washington, D.C.! I can't wait to hear about your adventures!
A representative from the Museum of Science came to Stratton today for a Bridge presentation for the second grade. The children created bridges independently, in goups and as a class. Many thanks to the PTO for funding this presentation.
Stratton's second graders brought in 142 non-perishable food items which were donated to Arlington EATS. We surpassed our goal of collecting 100 items! The children counted the items in groups of 2's, 5's and 10's. Many thanks to Susanne Friedman for collecting and delivering our items to Arlington EATS. Thank you to Thompson teacher/Arlington EATS volunteer, Nicole Melnik, for organizing the delivery for us.
Wow! What a fun day today! The day flew by, but we had a great time decorating our Valentine's Day bags and delivering our cards. We also completed a few 100th Day activities.
I hope you enjoy the snow day on Monday!
Tuesday will be an exciting day as it is Valentine's Day and our 100th day of school.
The second grade has a goal to collect 100 non-perishable food items. If you would like to donate an item, please send it in on Tuesday. We will sort and count the items in groups of 2's, 5's 10's. We will then donate the items to Arlington EATS. Many thanks for your support.
Don't forget your Valentine's Day cards on Tuesday (please do not include food in the cards). Thank you.
Parents are welcome to send in a special snack for their own child.
Have fun in the snow and see you on Tuesday!
As you can see from the photos, we had an amazing day building our own bridge creations! Today, we spent the day creating and testing our designs. Our goal was to have a car travel on the bridge, have a boat go under the bridge and to add weight on the bridge. On Tuesday, the children created their bridge design with a partner. They painted their page set-ups (which showed the 15 inch span between the abutments).
Our bridges looked amazing!
Way to go second graders!
I love staying connected between the classroom and the children's homes. I look forward to posting often this year! Feel free to leave comments!
