Vocabulary Parade

SAVE THE DATE! Our first annual Vocabulary Parade is on its way! Each student will select a word that will become a costume. Put your thinking caps on! How would you show the word X-RAY? or ZIGZAG? or BLIZZARD? From A to Z, students will consider the entire dictionary as possible wardrobe choices. Suggested word lists are attached with words that may spark your interest. Your child will be asked to bring his/her costume to school on Friday, October 30th, along with the selected word and definition attached to his/her costume. Thank you for helping us make vocabulary instruction into a Parade of Words!

Last week the second graders participated in a wonderful listening/following directions activity.  The children had lots of fun and the end result is a beautiful bulletin board.

Pumpkin Science

We had a special treat on Friday.  Mr. Mussleman from the Science Center came to give us a presentation on Pumpkin Science.  We discovered if the the pumpkin would sink or float and learned the parts of a pumpkin.  Then we experimented with how the fire works, needing fuel, oxygen and heat by using a jack-o-lantern. Lastly, we enjoyed a chemical reaction with the pumpkin. Be sure to ask your child a out our science discoveries and enjoy our pictures. A video will be coming soon.
