Welcome Back Ms. Cialek... and is that a new fish???
Week 4 and we're starting our first big second grade project... "Project Bulb Garden"! Students took a critical look at bulbs and wrote about their observations.... what you see, what you notice, like a scientist would do! We tried to differentiate between "scientific writing" and "story writing", and labeled our pictures the way a scientist would! Nicely done friends! More on bulbs later..
Kirsten was our Math meeting helper today, and what a helper she was! We took a small "sidetrip" conversation regarding tens and ones (place value), but Kirsten ran a great meeting! Well done Kirsten! Tomorrow, Rebecca will take the stage as our first morning meeting helper. Very brave Rebecca! I'm sure it will be a great meeting! While we miss good ol' Swimmy, Ms. Cialek heard the news about our beloved fishy, and has supplied our class with another beautiful Beta! New tank, new fish, new beginning! Thank you Ms. Cialek, we will love and take good care of this new addition to our 2W family! Nice to have you back too (irreplaceable)!
