Students in Mrs. Dougherty's second grade class proudly display the sentences they created using the "The Word of the Day," which was the word drain. The "Word of the Day" is a component of the Fundations (phonics) program that teaches students the meaning of words. Mrs. Dougherty chose to showcase this particular activity because she noticed as the year has progressed students' sentences are becoming more complex and detailed. Some of the sentences on the students' boards read:
"The water going down the drain in the classroom drowned out my voice!"
"When I get out of the bath, I drain the water by picking up the plug."
"I drained my pool with a filter when the water overflowed."
"I poured the water down the drain causing a creaky sound."
PBIS and Bucket Filling
The new student rewards for February will be lego building for K-2, read aloud with the principals for K-1, and being on the morning announcements for grade 2! On Monday, we will announce the next schoolwide goal and reward!
