Happy Halloween!

It was a great day in second grade! Thank you parents for a spooktacular party! We loved the pumpkin decorating, mummy wrapping and yummy treat! Happy Halloween!

The Witch's Broom!?

Reported By: Ryan and Mrs. Partyka
Mrs. Berndt read The Widow's Broom. A witch crashed into a vegetable garden on a farm. She left her broom with the widow. The broom swept floors, played the piano and chopped wood. Some of the neighbors burned it but the broom came back. It scared them to move away. The widow lived happily with the broom. Mrs. Partyka's brother Chris found the widow's broom in New York and sent it to her mom, Mrs. Berndt. It was a crazy broom!

Who Cried Wolf?

Reported By: Joey
I performed the play The Pig Who Cried Wolf. Percy Pig played pranks on his pig friends. He told them there was a big bad wolf. One day a real bad wolf came to his door. He huffed and puffed and blew his house down. Percy Pig learned a lesson to never play pranks again.

Jack and the Giant Sunflower

Reported By: Lorelei
Christina, Ben, Salvi, Lindsey, Michael and I were in the play called Jack and the Giant Sunflower. His friend Bart gave him magic seeds and he planted them and a giant sunflower grew. He climbed it but didn't find anything at the top. When he climbed down the sunflower disappeared. It was magical!

Visit to the Planetarium

Reported By: Our Class
We visited the u-46 planetarium. We learned a lot! Did you know the sun rises in the east and sets in the west? There are 8 planets. Venus and Jupitar have volcanos. Saturn's rings are made of dust and ice. Neptune rotates on its side. All the planets orbit the sun. Learning about space is called astronomy. It is very interesting!
