Second Grade Rock Stars

Tour News!

Our Highlights: What We've Been Rockin' At!

  • Thank you to those that were able to stop by Open House this week! Students mentioned that they were most excited to show off their life cycle of a sunflower books that they had worked long and hard on and to show you our live ladybugs. It was fabulous to see you all! The students are looking forward to continuing to add to our memory books as the year progresses (Thank you to Jamie Hernandez with making that possible! She is simply amazing!).
  • On Thursday we traveled to the Seattle Aquarium for a Virtual Field trip. It was amazing! We listened as the scientist and divers spoke of their job, about salmon and how they change over the seasons, and even had the opportunity to submit questions to get answered. It was a great kick-off to learning about the life cycle of a salmon!
  • We are about to begin our persuasive unit, so get ready for some interesting persuasive letters from your little kiddos. Hopefully, they are very convincing! We will be working on that the next two weeks and continue to progress through the full writing process.
