Not an ordinary Tuesday... certainly not when it's Willy Wonka Day in second grade! Students came dressed at their favorite character from the story, and we had many Viotets, Mike TVs, Charlies, Verucas, and Oompa Loompas too! No Willy Wonkas, Agustus Gloops, or Grandpa Joes this year. Please notice how students quickly got into character for their photo-op. And yes... that Veruca is just down right nasty...or as Aryana said (and rather well)... "completely spoiled and very bossy to her father"! You got that right, Aryana! Every year is different and every year Willy Wonka Day is memorable. We started our day writing about what we would do at the factory, as every student found a GOLDEN TICKET! Later we found a chocolate river flowing through the math meeting and students graphed several types of "data" (yea, it was chocolate). We had lots of fun and unexpected surprises throughout the day. The only thing that could have made it better was if Roald Dahl could have joined us himself. I think he would have been impressed... well done second graders! Fun day!
