Today in class we celebrated Earth Day by wearing green, reading about recycling and doing a fun activity. Each student brought in a regular household item that they would normally throw away and used their imagination to create something they could use. Some of the ideas were a picture frame, a clock made from an old CD, pencil holders, magazine holders, a robot, a sailboat and there were a lot more wonderful ideas. The kids had a lot of fun doing this activity and I enjoyed watching their creativity.

I am so proud of all the second graders! Your books turned out so cute. Thank you for working so hard all week to get them completed. It was great seeing your excitement at the Young Authors' Convention as you showed your parents. I believe your parents loved the books. These books will be great keepsakes. One day you can show your children your wonderful book that you wrote and illustrated.
