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.
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.
Way to go class! Since school started, we have been adding a letter each day we have perfect attendance! We have just spelled out the word “PERFECT!” Awesome job being here everyday so we can learn more!
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!!!
Sharing what we feel makes a great classmate.
Thinking hard and sharing our thoughts.
This is our list we came up with as a class.
Here, we are deciding what kind of “SMART” we are.
A real SMART class!!
Are you Number Smart, Word Smart,…
Music Smart, Art Smart,…
Body Smart, Self Smart,…
Nature Smart, or Team Smart?
Then we made a book about us and what kind of “smart” we are.
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?
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.
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.
