We learn from informative texts: Making Bubbles!

The 2nd graders are making bubbles in our class  and blowing the bubbles in our class and we love blowing the bubbles. We are learning to follow a procedure, so we can write our own procedures.

My friend is using  bubbles  we made in our classroom. Our  class blew a bubble that went over the school past a house and popped on a tree. THAT was awesome.

Mrs.V's class is having a cooking experiment.A kid from Mrs.V's class was making parfaits.  

Every week for 6 weeks, Ms.Bonny from UVM comes to teach us about nutrition. She reads us a story, next we play a game, then we get to cook! Each week we learn about a different food group.This week was fruit.We cut up fruit and layered it with yogurt and crushed gram crackers. YUM!

Today is a feast! We are making yogurt parfaits. It was yummy!!! Our class learned how much fruit is good for people.

These children are cutting fruits and they are learning about healthy foods.

We started our seed workshop by talking about plants’ needs. Some of us held up posters to show what they need. Next, we sat in a circle to learn about different types of seeds.Then went on a seed collecting walk. When we got back with our seeds we mixed them with soil and water and shaped them like meatballs to make “seed bombs.”
