Class Community

We learned all about our words and how once we say something, we can not take it back.

We first broke into groups and squeezed out all the toothpaste from the tube.

The competition in the groups began once the teacher told us to put all the toothpaste back into the tubes.  The first team to get all the toothpaste back into the tube would win!

What did we learn?  We first learned that we are not able to get the toothpaste (any of it) back into the tube once we have squirted it all out.  Then we learned this is a lot like our words.  Once we say something, we can not take it back, even with a “sorry”.  We are a part of the classroom community and we need to respect each other and be cautious of our words.

 

 

A Packed First Week

We had a fun first week back with a lot of “getting to know each other” activities.  We also had many discussions on being a good classmate.  Here are a few lessons we learned from…

First, we did an activity with band-aids.  Mrs. Miller pretended she was the best doctor in the world and could fix any problem.  We had 5 problems…

Dr. Miller fixed everyone with a band-aid.  The class realized that the band-aid only fixed the finger with the cut on it and did nothing for the other problems.  We then talked about how a classroom has different students who need help in different areas and we have to respect each other for our differences.

Our next lesson we learned was the power of our words.  We were challenged to squeeze all the toothpaste out of the tubes in groups.  The students had to then try and get the toothpaste back into the tubes.

We learned the words can come out of our mouths easily but once they are said, we can not take them back.  We need to make sure our words are kind and helpful.

1st Quarter Elite

After working very hard this 1st quarter, we had two groups of students that stood out above the rest.  Everyone worked very hard, but these students worked hard and kept up their grades.

First Couple Weeks…

 

We have been second graders for a whole 8 days now!  The things we know and the friends we have met has been amazing!  We did a lot of things to get to know each other and build relationships.  Check us out!!!

Is there something we should add to our poster of a Great Classmate?  What kind of “SMART” do you think you are?  Which way do you learn best?

 

Awards Day

These are the top kids on our class.  They worked super duper hard this year and we honored them today with a small awards assembly.  Way to go kids!!!

Letter K Day

Letter K   Day: Kindness Day

Today was kindness day.  We made kind cards and we watched a kind video that had kindness in it.  If you don’t be kind and if you don’t treat others like you want to be treated you might be sad.  You want to be treated like you want to be treated.

Today was Kindness Day.  We should always use manners because every manner you use helps guide you to your future.

Kindness Activity

Mrs. DeSantis came to our class to talk about Random Acts of Kindness.  We learned about PRIDE.  We talked about pride being effort+success=pride.  After we talked about nice phrases to write, the students were given chalk to go outside and write nice things for others to read.
