Sweet Moments in 2nd!


There are so many sweet moments that happen in a day.  Here are some that I managed to capture!

A playdoh message for all of the teachers. 😍


Morning message!  We do this every morning.   The kids proofread a sentence that I make so, so many mistakes in.  They've been rocking quotation marks,  contractions, and spelling tricky words!

Partner reading!  


Centers!




They know me well... a note on the board to remind me that someone is working in the hall.

8th grade reading buddies... a favorite no matter what the weather.




Creating a puppet show for a story they wrote.

A letter to encourage our 2nd grade spelling bee participants.


Perfect snowflakes!

Writing About Animals: Lessons form a Professional in 2nd Grade


For the past week, the 2nd graders have had the experience of being coached in writing by children's book author, Linda Harkey.   We are all learning so much.  By the end of this 2 week project,  each child will have written and illustrated a story about 2 of the 8 New Mexico animals we've been researching.
