Second Grade Happenings

January 15, 2016

Our classroom was abuzz with nonfiction writing this week. Using the Book Creator app, second graders have been crafting a book to share all they've learned through their country research. From the table of contents to fact boxes to glossaries their creativity is showing! We look forward to sharing our finished projects in coming weeks.


In P.E. Mrs. Arrowood is preparing students for Jump Rope for Heart. Forms went home this week and all donations are due on February 5th.


If you would like to order books from the Scholastic Book Order you can place your order online. Our class code is GNP7J. If you'd prefer not to do it online, you can use the forms that were sent home today. Please return the forms or place your order by January 29th.
