It's hard to believe we are nearing the end of 2nd grade! I am pleased with how much this group has grown academically, socially, and personally. There is much to celebrate!
We learned about and wrote color poems, finished our science notes on Matter and took a Quizziz (online quiz) on it, and completed our Math lesson on Area and Perimeter. We read and took notes in our Ecosystem Expert Groups on the Tundra, Desert, Wetlands, and Deciduous Forest. This week each group will chart their ecosystem to share with the others and from there we will take an opinion writing test on which ecosystem is the best.
We also took a mini-field trip to the 5th grade amphitheater to view Ms. Hewitt's play on Rachel Carson and DDT. The 5th graders did a great job and it was yet another valuable lesson on the interdependence of living things. Thanks for the enlightenment, 5th graders!
We also bid farewell to Ayesha as she travels to Pakistan. We sure enjoyed popsicles from Ms. Elena and the Walking School Bus crew, too! Thank you, ladies!
