Indoor Ice Skating!!!

This week we learned about friction! The students were asked to use wax paper, foil, and laminating film to create the BEST indoor ice skates. After the data collection, we learned that wax paper made the BEST indoor ice skates because there was the least amount of friction with the wax paper!

Children's Museum Field Trip

Our field trip to the Children's Museum is this Thursday, March 12th! We will be watching "The Paper Bag Princess" at the Lilly Theater. Permission forms and money were collected earlier this year. On the day of the field trip, students should wear our class t-shirt and pack a disposable lunch. We are looking forward to a great day!

Be sure to check Twitter next Thursday while we are on the field trip! I will be tweeting pictures throughout the day to keep you updated on all the fun we are having! @MrsLJackson2

Candy Bar Bingo!

The PTO will be hosting Candy Bar Bingo at TCE on Friday, March 20th from 6:00-8:30pm. The second grade teachers and Mrs. Hopper will be calling bingo numbers from 6:50-7:15. There will be a raffle at the event where you can bid on "Teacher Experiences!" My "Teacher Experience" that you can bid on will be to stay after school with me and a friend. We will eat pizza and enjoy a movie!

Digital Learning Day!

Digital Learning Day is next Friday, March 13th! Digital learning is the instructional practice that effectively uses technology to strengthen a student's learning experience. On this day, we will be exploring the digital learning opportunities that are available to us at TCE! You can read more about it at http://www.digitallearningday.org. IF your child has a device of his or her own, today would be a GREAT day to bring it to school!
