Literacy Workstations

Reported By: Becca
Everyday we go to workstations. Some of them are buddy reading, researching, Geo-Safari, working with words and listening. I wish we came to school everyday to do them even weekends, summer break and holidays.

Mrs. Beck Visits Our Room!

Reported By: Dante
Mrs. Beck our principal visited our room. She talked to us about Wayne's Way and how important it is. At Wayne we are respectful, responsible and resourceful.

Library Time!

Reported By: Emily
Hooray! It's library time! Every Monday our class goes to library. We check out two books. My favorite books are animal books. We use sliders to remember where we got the book so we can put it back if we don't chose to check it out.

We had lots of fun naming our teams an ice cream flavor and creating ice cream cones. The team names are cookie dough, coffee, birthday cake, chocolate with sprinkes and raspberry. We came up with our ideas and worked together.

Learning About Insects

Reported By: Luke
We went outside and found many insects! To be an insect you need to have 6 legs, 3 body parts, 2 antennae and wings. We also found slugs, worms and spiders but we knew they are not insects. Most people don't like insects but I really do!

I am a second grade teacher at Wayne Elementary in Wayne, Illinois. Second grade is a wonderful year! I love how the students continue to grow as readers and are so excited about science and social studies! I enjoy scrapbooking and any kind of exercise. I recently discovered boxing but love riding my bike best. This is my third year blogging and am so proud my students are the main authors!
