Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

On Tuesday we got ourselves excited for Thanksgiving with a lot of fun events! We first started the day by reading T”was the Night before Thanksgiving followed by  the Shady Grove Thanksgiving Parade, which is always a treat! Afterwards, we spent our morning snuggled up reading with our classmates for our 2nd grade  “Turkey Read-In”. Finally the icing on the cake was  our monthly craft. We feel so thankful to have such supportive parents to join us and organize fun, enriching crafts! We made “Thankful Turkeys” and even got to color some fun holiday themed masks. Click the link below to check out a few snapshots from our morning.

Enjoy time with family and friends 🙂

Gobble, Gobble!

There are a lot of thankful turkeys here in 2nd grade! We have been working on putting our writing skills to good use as we brainstormed all the things we feel grateful for. The students picked their top three and wrote a reason for each thing they were thankful for. There were so many wonderful thoughts and things to be thankful for. Check out the picture below to see just a few examples. I know I feel very thankful for 23 wonderful, kind, fun and bright students in my class!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Career Day

Career Day

On Friday, we enjoyed Career day with many special guest and speakers. It was a great learning experience and we learned about a variety of jobs. A few careers we learned about were a veterinary, radiologist, fire fighter and CIA personnel . We even got to take a tour of a snow plow that plows our roads on those snowy days! We thank our guidance counselors,  Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Askins for planning such a well organized and wonderful day for us!

Chinese Acrobats

Chinese Acrobats

This morning we had the awesome experience of watching Chinese Acrobats perform! In the upcoming months we will be learning more information about Ancient China, so having real Chinese Acrobats at Shady Grove was very exciting for us. We are so lucky to have such a supportive PTA that provides  enriching opportunities for our 2nd graders. Take a look at just a few of the incredible things we saw. Even some 2nd graders had a chance to learn some new tricks!
