Mrs. Barth's sons visited Stratton after school today. Nolan worked on his artistic talents designing a person.
The children worked as civil engineers today. We worked with a one-story structure and a tower. We explored different actions with the structures; weight and wind, and the children observed the effects of these actions. We discussed the problems and possible solutions. We were successful in adding another column to our one-story structure and we added string (cables) to our tower to make them stronger.
We have a PRIDE assembly tomorrow, March 9th, hosted by the Kindergarten team. Wear green to show your second grade PRIDE!
Check out the video of a student reading dialogue from the book "Stagestruck" by Tomie dePaola. The passage the student shared is challenging as she read two different characters with different intonations. Well done!
Tomie dePaola's work will be on display at the Wenham Museum starting this weekend. Click the link below for more information.
I spent the weekend in Washington, D.C. developing my leadership skills with the ONE Campaign. (The ONE Campaign is a non-profit advocacy organization working to end extreme poverty.) The skills I learned will not only help me work with others to help eradicate extreme poverty, they will also support my work at Stratton.
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!
