Friendship and Community

We have been working hard on creating a caring and friendly classroom environmen over the last few weeks.  We've read LOTS of great books, completed some fun group,activities, and we've even done a few experiments! We've talked a lot about the power of our words and the ability we all have to help each other.  Here are some photos from our fun!

Reading Stations

We've been practicing some of our reading stations this week. We've worked on handwriting, silent reading, short vowels and rhyming, as well as logging into Google Chrome and signing into Raz-Kids.  We worked hard on quiet quick transitions between groups and staying focused and increasing our "work stamina"' at each station.  We will certainly start to work on harder second grade skills, start reading groups, and the kids will even start their own blog! We've had a great week so far!

Bus Safety with Mrs. McCleary

Mrs. McCleary came in today to teach us about how to ride the bus safely. She went over the parts of the bus as well as certain safety features like the emergency exits, the crossing bar, the flashing stop sign, the multiple lights on the back of the bus, and the safety rear view mirrors.  We then took a walking tour around the bus to actually point out the safety features and then we rode to Creek Farm Plaza and back so we could practice sitting with our backs against the seat, our legs in, and quiet voices.    Here are some photographs of her presentation!
