In the last month I worked on graphing, magnets, "All About" writing, and a huge reading research project on biographies. The kidos really loved reading about famous men and women. When school resumes in a week, the kidos will come dressed as a famous person and present a project. I definitely plan to take photos!
We celebrated the 100th day last week with classroom rotations. I played "Roll to 100" with various 2nd grade groups. The idea was on a blog I follow and I wish I could thank the person, but I don't remember who it was. (That is just how my year had been with a new grade level and taking over for a teacher in October!)
Valentine's Day was a whirlwind. We did edible math and a parent came in to make a craft. I still have not mastered the classroom party! It just seemed smoother with 4th graders. I have another one on March 17th - so if anyone has any ideas, let me know!
One kido gave me this:
If you are on a break this week! Enjoy!
