Second grade is off to a wonderful start! Although it has been a hot couple of days to begin school, we have been keeping cool while practicing reading independently, playing games to get to know our new friends, and completing an All About Me book. Today we had to "save Fred." Using persistence and teamwork, groups of two saved the gummy worm Fred with a gummy life preserver, using only paper clips to move him. We are looking forward to more challenges (Bring It On!) like this in second grade.
