Welcome Back Letter

Dear 2nd Grade Families,

I had a marvelous time with your students at Step Up Day.  We read a story called “The Opposite” by Tom MacRae.  It is about a boy who is visited by the Opposite, which causes him to do the opposite of whatever he is told to do.   The boy cleverly conquers the opposite and enjoys getting back on track in his daily life.  We also created a classroom quilt about ourselves with the special markers.  I’ll post this as soon as we “stitch” it together.

Headset Project

Click to Donate to the Headset Project

Please consider a small tax deductible donation to our headset project.  I am excited about going wireless with our ipads.  I like the idea of making a smooth transition to skill building time or more importantly, for them to start their careers as researchers.

If you do choose to donate, then please use the promo code:

Tell donors to double donations up to $50 by adding the promo code LIFTOFF at checkout for the next 6 days.

Our big goal right now is to make posters about different countries as we try to "travel" around the world during the holidays.  This means that we have to gather facts and summarize what we learn!  We also have to keep track of our research materials so that we can refer back to them.  For a first big adventure in research, things are going GREAT.  We'll share the results of our efforts as soon as possible.

Thanks for your great kids!
