Celebrating the week

What an amazing first week in 2nd grade! Every year, the first couple of weeks are spent establishing rules and procedures, and building a community within the classroom. Well, we did all that and a little more! We read poetry, listened to 8 stories, wrote about ourselves, danced to GoNoodle, participated in Friday Fitness, made Jitter Juice, took a spelling inventory test, and so much more, including art!  Below you will read what my kids liked the most about this first week of school.

  5. Thanks Mrs. Torres for sharing what Angela did on your blog. She didn't know how meaningful her cookie sale was for you and the class. It is amazing to see all children learning in a fun way. Star Academy is a great school!
