Science Day!!

Today we celebrated our first science day!




The scientists walked in and started the day. We learned all about balancing and weighing







We balanced butterflies on pencils and added weight to see if it changed. Then we were introduced to the word Fulcrum. 


We balanced cubes and then got out the equal arm balance. We built it and weighed different objects making predictions and testing out our theories. 






What  a successful science day!!

Play




Another busy week in 2nd grade. I always love to watch the students interacting during recess. It is a sneak peek into their personalities and is such a huge and often forgotten part of brain and learning development. I commit to giving your child this time while they are in my class, knowing that it goes hand and hand with the lessons I am teaching each day. 




Here is a peek at the possible future....



Engineers, designing ramps for their cars. 




Teachers




Designers, creating fashions for Barbie

Chalk




I was gifted the book: Chalk for my son's 5th birthday this summer and once we read it it became an instant hit and I couldn't wait to sneak it out of the house to share it with the class. I finally got a chance to bring it to school today and we went outside and I read the class the book. It is a wordless book but the illustrations and events in the story  are so vivid you don't even need words to describe them. The kids were in awe! It was silent as I turned the pages and that may be a first for this group 😉 the kids loved the story and were even more excited when I told them that for writing today we were going to illustrate our own chalk drawing and then write about them! They loved it and I can't wait to see all of the great writing that this book has inspired. 

Here are just a couple pictures of us creating our masterpieces.
