It’s the most busy time of the year! I hope everyone is taking the time to reflect on the important things, like our family and blessings that God has given us. The students prepared for Thanksgiving by learning about the pilgrims in Social Studies, as well as prayers of Thanksgiving in Religion. The students liked our “Turkey Math” the best though, where they had to solve math problems about Turbo Turkey and complete a “craft-ivity” that ended with a more than 5 foot tall turkey project. The students worked so hard on this project, and the end result was awesome!
The students also recently competed in a whole-school design challenge where we tried to see who could build the biggest balloon tower. While second grade didn’t win, I was so proud of their collaboration together, especially when our first design failed and we had to re-design our structure. The students needed minimal guidance in how to design and work together on this project.
