Welcome to morning meeting! I am planning each week to introduce you to a new component of what we do during morning meeting. The first part of the day is one of my favorites! It gives everyone (including me) a chance to say good morning and hello to everyone, it is called "the greeting". Students use creative ways to say good morning to others using their first names. This is a component of Responsive Classroom - which I implement on a daily basis. Click this link here to learn more about Responsive Classroom :) I originally had a video but it wouldn't upload. I plan on this week using my "fancy" camera to video tape. Hopefully I will be able to upload it ;)
We have been working hard on our fairy tale characters! When you come to conferences this week you will notice all of our hard work in the hallway. Here are some pictures of them being created :)
We also had the great opportunity to go to art this week Todd! Todd is the art teacher for our 6-8 graders at Parkview. We get to work with Todd for 6 straight days in a row :) That means our 2nd graders are getting quality art instruction - and some laughs as well. I am sure by now your student has let you know how funny Todd is - he brightens up everyones day. We are working on Roosters using oil pastels as well as tissue paper and paint. These art pieces are turning out beautiful!
