Second Grade Happenings

November 15, 2015

Last week seemed to fly by! Second graders worked hard learning the ins and outs of video production with Animoto. They began crafting a video of their PLTW project describing their efforts in the engineering design process. Hopefully they will be ready to share next week.

I will be sending home Scholastic Book Orders on Monday. Orders are due by Friday, November 20th. You can also order online. Our class code is GNP7J.

Grandparents Day is a little less than a week away. Please return the form that was sent home earlier if you have not already.
