Second grade has been learning about graphs. They got the opportunity to us their math, writing, and art skills in a project about the best parts of spring. Students created a line plot and picture graph to show what their favorite part of spring is. They also got to write an opinion paper and create a watercolor kite!
Our after school clubs started yesterday. In Mrs. Funes’ class we are learning American Sign Language also known as ASL. Today we learned how to sign the alphabet and how to greet someone and respond. It’s exciting to see so many students excited to be learning a new language and more about the deaf community!
For our electricity science unit, we made electricity game boards. Our game boards worked by touching a wire to a brad and if you answered the question correctly a tiny light bulb would light up. This worked because we had foil on the back of the game board acting as wires for our game. We used a battery as our power source, and with wires we lit up the light bulb when the player touched the correct answer with the correct question. We decorated them in different ways with different themes. Some examples are; food, Disney, cats, video games, etc.
