Mystery Reader!


Reported By: Ben
Today my mom came as a mystery reader. I was surprised! She read African Cats. It is a book about big cats like lions, tigers and cheetahs. It was a great book and it is a great movie to see. My class really liked the book.

The Three Billy Goats


Reported By: Christina and Jackson
We were two of the goats in the play The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The three goats thought there was a troll under the bridge but they were wrong. They were afraid it might shoot poison darts out of its fingers tips. They felt very silly when they learned it was only a ladybug. It was a hilarious play!

Mystery Reader


Reported By: Mrs. Partyka
I know the mystery reader very well! It was my son Greg! He was home from college and came to meet my favorite second graders! He read a book about Lou Gerhig since he is one of Greg's heroes. Greg enjoyed doing science with the class and remembering what second grade was like.

Spinning Tops


Reported By: Ben
In science we made spinning tops. To make them work you need an axis and equal weight around it. We had fun making different tops for them. It was awesome playing with tops!

Balancing!


Reported By: Nick Z and Zack
In science we learned how to balance our pencil. We had to use special materials. We balanced the pencil tip on a popsicle stick and used wires with clothespins for counterweights.
