It was a busy day today in Grade 2!  We started off with our regular routine.  Our spelling word was "impossible", we did and introduction for "How to Sing", and we doodled a bulldog.

In Language Arts we did our regular daily 5 activities.  We did a round of read to self and several rounds of write to self.  We worked on our identifying the topics of our sentence and adding details about the topic!  If you add a detail not related to the topic it sounds very random.

After recess we had our Make Something That Does Something.  Today we worked on the story of the 3 little pigs.  We made a paper cup pig and a house of paper to protect it.  I was the big bad wolf, but instead of using my lungs I used my electric leaf blower to try and blow the pigs out of the house.  At the beginning of every MSTDS I promise two things; your project will hit problems and life will go on! 

After lunch we had PE with Ms McFarlene!  The we came up to the classroom and talked about Thanksgiving.  I explained why the settlers used fish as fertilizer to help their seeds and and crops grow.  I said today we are a bit smarter with our fertilizer and then I was corrected - we grow our food in animal poop!  How is that smarter?

We finished off the day doing a dance for music.  We didnt get to the part where we add music, but I think we have the steps down!  Stay tuned for a video next week to show off our mad polka dance skills!

I hope I see everyone at the pumpkin fling between 1:30 and 2:00 tomorrow to cheer for Ian Baillie!  Have a great weekend!
