First of all - thanks to all who made purchases in the TpT 3 Million Strong sale!! I am super excited about the two packets I bought!
Captain's Log, stardate 9522.6: We were very busy writing our stories this week. My students were a little hesitant at first but as time passed and they developed their stories - masterpieces were born from tiny, sparkly ideas!! Since I am teaching Grade 2 this year and they were already familiar with 3 Sentence Story Writing from last year, I decided to take their experience and make Level 2: 9 Sentence Story Writing! Click on it to check it out!
Here is just one of the activities I created to go along with the packet.
Here are some of the super, awesome stories my students produced. I am so proud of them. The are literally amazing in their creativity! The sentences and flow are pretty darn great if I do say so myself!!
Happy story writing!
On top of all that, oh me oh my - so glad I made it through report cards, Career Day, Choose Respect Day, Grade 2 Community Worker interviews with iPads - thanks Mrs. O for all of your hard work :)
|Here is one of our hardworking Educational Assistants being interviewed by some budding reporters!|
Also, Bricks4Kidz came for our in school field trip (one of my students won it by guessing the correct amount of legos in a jar - Hurrah!). Here is a pict of the Bricks4Kidz field trip. We made windmills that attached to little battery packs - so cool!
|At this point we connected them altogether and created some serious wind power! Yeah Bricks4Kidz!|
I received my iPad Minis this week too thanks to Just Be Friends and the friendship video some of our students made - it ended up being the Grand Prize Winner. Check it out!!!!
Here are two of my kiddos with our iPad minis - I'm not sure who is more excited - me or them!!
Finally, here is my class working on their Just Be Respectful Badge - we made a banner and talked about how good manners are respectful. I displayed it in the hallway. We also made up friendship handshakes! The Just Be Friends program has excellent ideas with ties to curriculum - super easy to use for teachers and excellent for friendship building within school communities!
Have a great weekend - we deserve it!!
