Each year our school joins with others to celebrate reading during National Literacy Week. There were many activities throughout the week including visiting authors and everyone's favourite, pyjama day!
Art projects have been very popular in our class this year. I have found that student's are able to follow the instructions more easily after they have seen the finished product. The Smart Board has been invaluable. The latest painting project came from the Grade 2 Smarties website. The blog gave detailed instructions which I left up on the Smart Board after showing the students what the painting should look like. My students definitely gave them their own personal touches. I think that ours are very beautiful. This is the only bulletin board display where other teachers (and the principal!) have come in to tell us how beautiful the trees are. Thank you Mrs. Sandberg!
