Field Day!

We had a great day at field day!  The students loved all the challenging events.  Some of our favorites were the parachute, rope pull, and bucket fill.  We were so lucky the weather held out and we got to have a fun day outdoors.

Reading Celebration

Our class participated in the Accelerated Reader program.  There was an incentive to read 20 or more books and successfully pass the quizzes to be invited to a reading celebration.  Our class had the most particpants.  We had 21 students attend the party and the top 3 readers were from our class!  I am so proud of my favorite second graders!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms from room 3!  I had a special day at Bradley University where moms threw out the first pitch to their sons.

Creating Treasure Maps

Check out our pirate day in second grade!  The students had to use their knowledge of map keys, symbols, and directions to create a map.  They hid treasure (bubble gum) and traded maps with other pirates.  The students enjoyed dressing the part as they went on their quest for finding buried treasure!

Junior Achievement

Thank you Mrs. Busto for teaching the Junior Achievement program.  The students loved voting on a new business for our community.  They did a wonderful job learning how unit and assembly production work.  I enjoyed seeing them earn money but have to pay taxes too!  It was a great experience for our young citizens.

Click Clack Moo comes to Broadway!

Mrs. Berndt was our professional play director this year.  She has a special talent for teaching students to be performing stars.  Each week we were entertained with fabulous stories!

Thank You Parents!

I am so blessed to be with such incredible families at Wayne Elementary!  During Teacher Appreciation week, I was so overwhelmed with their kindness!  I was gifted with beautiful flowers, special treats, and notes that I will cherish forever!   

Get Ready For Summer Reading!

The Bartlett Library visited us to tell us about their summer reading program.  They shared lots of great new books with us.  Did you know you earn prizes too?  I am so excited to read this summer!  Be sure to check in at the library to sign up for the summer reading program!
