2nd-3rd Grades

Second and third grade is a very exciting time for students.  They are learning to become more independent, responsible, and social beings while building upon the academic skills they learned in Kindergarten and first grade.  The changes from the beginning of 2nd grade to the end of 3rd grade are amazing!

Heart Healthy Activities

posted May 6, 2017, 7:59 AM by

To learn about their body and how important their heart is, the kids worked together to put together a body puzzle that showed vital organs and the circulatory system.

Lori came in and taught the class how to read ingredient labels. She told them to look for "whole" or "100%", as that means it's heart healthy for them.

The class tried their first healthy snack, "Frosted Mini Wheats" and 1% low fat milk.  

Yum, yum.....

This week the kids have been enjoying reading and writing poems. 

The Book

By Amelia Watters

If you look inside a book, you will see poems and rhymes, and always things that make you go back in time.  It also gives you thoughts of bad, but always thoughts of good!

A Heart Shaped Rock

By Avery Eaton

It’s not just a rock. It could be a heart of a rock shaped heart or a heart that got dried.  It could be an anything heart.  Even maybe your heart, maybe?


By Shea Bruce

Air is everywhere. No matter where you go air follows. No matter where you are, air follows.  Even if you think you’re alone, air is there.

After much hard work and several drafts, the class finished publishing their Native American books this week.  Once published, they enjoyed reading them to each other.  Brandon even read his book to the 8th grade students!  Others will do the same once they return from the April break.

The 2/3 class has been learning about the weather for the past several weeks.  They've had a lot  to follow with all the low pressure systems that have been moving through.  As they have been working hard, and learning much, Newman has been watching and growing!

My, what a big toothbrush you have! 2/3 learns about dental health from Nurse Barbara.

Future Engineers at Work

First, we build up the pile of snow and let it settle for awhile.  
A compact mound is essential for the foundation.

Second, we dig and excavate from three different directions.            

Third, our calculations are correct and we are able to connect the three tunnels.

Forth, we show off our hard work, cooperation, and collaboration!

The finished product built by the 2/3 Engineers!

"All Things Mammal"

posted Feb 4, 2017, 6:10 AM by   [ updated Feb 5, 2017, 4:25 PM ]

The 2/3 class have been busy this week doing  "All Things Mammal." 
 To learn about animal teeth we ate apple slices while focusing on our incisors, canines, pre-molars, and molars.

Mammals have amazing physical skills. 
 They can run fast, jump long, and high, hold their breathe for long periods of time, and weigh tons.  In Gym class the class compared their skills with cheetahs, kangaroos, elephants, and seals.

Mounted Mammals
To finish the week out Bill G. came in and talked about mammals in Brooklin.  He  brought in several of his mounts and talked about taxidermy.
