First Stop: Video News

We had a wonderful week in second grade.  One student brought in an owl pellet for us to dissect together as a class.  We learned that owls eat moles, mice, shrews and small birds.  We discovered skulls, skin, teeth, and other interesting bones inside of the owl pellet.

We also celebrated a wonderful milestone of completing our first published books.  Students celebrated by reading their books to their buddies and having a publishing party!

We also learned and talked a lot about Thanksgiving.  We read books about the story of Thanksgiving, we talked about what we are thankful for, and we learned that gratitude is an attitude!  I hope they show their gratitude to their awesome families, because they sure feel it.

I hope you all have a terrific Thanksgiving, filled with family, friends, and delicious food!
