12-12-12!!!!! Once in a Century!
What a cool date! Once in a century, nothing like this will ever happen again! Wow! It was also a pretty cool day in second grade too! We started our new work board and it was very well received by second grade! Students enjoyed making Ed Emberly characters and writing stories, skip counting, scholastic news, crosswords, and buddy reading with our new super cool buddy-whisper phones! YEAH!!! In math we stretched our learning in place value and practiced writing numbers in their expanded form (hundreds tens and ones)! Then we used what we know about comparing numbers and compared bigger, 3 digit numbers! Aine had another great math meeting! Probably THE BEST EVER, AND THAT GOES FOR NOT ONLY THE MEETING LEADER, BUT EVERY PARTICIPANT!!! Excellent! We read Strega Nona in read aloud and were reminded how much we LOVE Tommie DePaola's characters, Big Anthony and Strega Nona! Awesome! In writing we worked on stories and thought about revising, rereading, editing, and illustrating! All very important elements in crafting a great story! Tomorrow is library... remember your books so you can check out new ones!
