Roll A Square and Limerick Style Poetry!
Wet Wednesday Friends! We started the day with a great morning meeting! Well done Adan! Writing workshop continues on with poetry, and today it was all about the limerick! Some say too tricky, too challenging for second graders to write a clever limerick. To them we say: "check out our Maya limerick"!!!
There once was a student named Maya,
Whose body was catching on fire,
So she jumped in a pool,
And got nice and cool,
Then after she ate some papaya!
Thanks for offering yourself for the cause Maya! Well done second grade writers! It was Olivia's sharing day, and she impressed us with some of her own poetry writing in her very special poetry journal! That's what I call a great end to a writing workshop on poetry! Well done! This afternoon we continued our work with 100's and played "Roll A Square"! Answering questions, solving equations, challenging our knowledge about tens (and bundling numbers... mentally) is what this game is all about! Great concrete AND mental math friends! Fun and well done! Tomorrow we're in for a real treat... Special assembly in the morning: the sixth grade play, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown! We can't wait! And we even have 5 friends performing tomorrow too! Break a leg friends! Can't wait for Thursday!
