What is that... that golden shiny orb glowing in the sky... could it actually be the SUN?? Holy cow, it DOES exist! Today Maya started our Friday with a great meeting and fun game of alibi! Well done detective Maya! Readers practiced fluency with our very own "Chickens" poem (inspired by Jack Prelutsky, of course). Reading together and out loud is a great way to work on expression and fluency, especially with poetry! Students thoughtfully read and reread the variety of poems they've been working on in our poetry unit. We finished editing our work and chose one final piece to publish. We illustrated each of our poems and will display our work in the Sunderland Public Library! Can't wait! Stay tuned for news about our gallery opening! Impressive second graders! Publishing poetry at the ripe old age of 7 and 8 years old! We ended our day with Peter's final math meeting and handed our "math meeting baton of brilliance" on to Ethan for next week! Looking forward to Saturday night and another wonderful performance by our 6th grade and many wonderful 2nd grade birds in "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown"!!! Have a great weekend friends!
