Second grade just finished its first week of school. I’m writing this on Friday, September 17, and even at the end of the week, I can say it’s been a wonderful opening week. Here are some of the things we got into.
First, we talked about what we hoped to do. We want to go to art, have field trips, play “Four Corners”, play football, meet and be with the third grade, and go to PE.
With our hopes, we made our covenant. We talked about how sharing a covenant and following a set of rules allows us to do what we want.
Then, we wrote and drew about ourselves. We talked about our favorite things, what surprised us about each other, and our families. We even started talking about where we lived using Google Maps (not pictured here).
We’ve celebrated Jackson’s birthday, established hallway and stair voices, meeting area norms,…and we’re all going to keep working. It’s been a full week.
