Accelerated Readers

Look at the readers who have 5 A.R.points this week! Mrs. Irwin is very proud of what great readers you are becoming in second grade! Keep up the great work, I am very proud of all of you!

Adopt-a Grandparent

Here we are working on our letters for the Adopt-A-Grandparent program. The students were given a name of an elderly person who would like to receive letters. We learned the different parts of a letter and how to write one. We also learned how to address an envelope and mail it. Now we are hoping that we will have a good response from our "grandparents".

In celebration of the 100th day of school, clowns from Miles of Smiles came to visit us. The kids had a lot of fun. Look real close and you will see that two of our kids were choosen out of the crowd to participate. What fun!


In reading, we found a partner and read to them. We then had a chance to work with our buddy to discuss what we had read.


In math, we were learning about symmetry. The students were given a piece of paper and told to fold it in half. I then put paint in the center where the fold was. Look at the great symmetrical pictures they created!
