Pizza Party/Rocket Launching

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for our pizza party and rocket launching.  We ate pizza, GoGurts, and Popsicles out on the lawn, and then took turns launching our rockets.   Thank you to the parents who helped!  Click on pictures to make them bigger.

Here are some fun things we have been doing to finish off our school year:

Camping Day!  We told scary stories, cozied up with stuffed animals and blankets and had a read-a-thon, made a yummy s’mores trailmix, and made a special summer journal to take home and fill out this summer.

Field Trip to KSL

May 18th, 2017 by Veronica Reeve No comments »

We had such a fun field trip to KSL Broadcast house seeing the behind the scenes and learning the different jobs you can have in broadcasting.  We even got to see Utah’s Governor – Governor Herbert!  The KSL staff treated us so well and answered all of our questions.  We got to see them recording the news and talk to the meteorologist about weather!  Thanks to the parents who came and helped and KSL for hosting us!

Here are some pictures of our day!

This week in class we are reading “The Dog That Dug for Dinosaurs”.  We are learning all about fossils and paleontologists.   Today we became the paleontologist, dug for our own dinosaurs, and made our own fossils!  Here are some pictures from our day!  Be sure to ask your second grader what they know about fossils and if they want to be a paleontologist when they grow up!

Earth Day Activities

April 20th, 2017 by Veronica Reeve No comments »

We have loved learning about Earth Day (April 22) and what we can do to make our Earth a more beautiful place.  We’ve read books, watched video clips on recycling, done research and written a report on the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle), and today we did a fun art project.  Here are some pictures from our art project today.  Be sure to look for their Earth Day reports coming home tonight.  It’s a great conversation to have with your student. They should be able to share with you different ways they’ve learned to help our Earth.
