The students wrote speeches on what character traits make them a good leader and what could they do to make Wayne School a better place. The students agreed that everyone did a really good job with their speeches. It was very difficult to vote one person for President For A Day.

We are very excited about the Olympics in room 3. We are learning a lot about where they are being held and the different winter events. We created Olympic hats and held a math Olympics. Watch our video to see what we had to do at the Math Olympics!

Snow Fun!

It has been a long winter with lots of cold and snow in Chicago. The students often don't get outside for recess because of the temperature. When they do go out, they have the BEST time. Mrs. Bolcum our lunch supervisor, took this picture of one group of happy second graders playing in the snow!

After lots of experimenting with balancing, wheel and axel systems, and air resistance, the students were ready to use their knowledge to create the best runway system (rollercoaster) they could. It was exciting to watch the teamwork and creativity of each group in the process.

Mystery Reader

Thank you Mrs. Moyer for being a mystery reader! We loved the book "Lousy Rotten Stinkin Grapes" by Palatini. It was perfect as we have been learning about fables. We enjoyed the illustrations and loved joining in on the reading of the book. Thank you for visiting us!
