Gingerbread Men in Disguise persuasive writing and art activity

We read a gingerbread man folktale,and The Gingerbread Baby. After we read them,
we pretended to be gingerbread men writing a persuasive letter to keep the fox from nabbing us.
After the writing we made our gingerbread men’s disguises. The three in the picture are a spider,
a chameleon, and a paper.  

We are disguising our gingerbread  men on December,11th. Mine  is  the  army  man  right  next  
to  the  karate  one.  We were  in skills  group  when  this  happened.
We were writing letters  to  Mr.Fox. There’s also an old man and a wolf.

These gingerbreads are disguised as a mermaid, a bunny and George Washington. It was fun to do!

We worked very hard  on writing to So we got rewarded!! We got to make gingerbread men.
We did it in our WIN class in December. To make it you need a gingerbread cookie, frosting,
Skittles and chocolate chips.
Our second grade WIN class was decorating cookies!We made them because we worked very
hard on our gingerbread men disguises and  persuasive letters to send to Mr.Fox.     

Winter Trees Art

The second grade made these trees in 2017.We did these because it was the starting of winter on December 21, 2017.

We made these trees for Winter out of hearts. It was fun. We made the snowflakes with paint.

They are decorating our hallway.

Adding fun with Base Ten Blocks

I was making a math monster using base ten blocks. His name was 400. He was a 5 armed bug.
The long arms are each worth ten. The three flat ones are each worth one hundred. The 10 small
squares are each worth one.  300 + 90 + 10 = 400

I was in my class making math monsters. We used based ten blocks to build them.  Mine is named 300.
I used a green marker to write its name. There's  2 hundreds, 9 tens and 10 ones.

Materials' properties engineering challenge

We are learning about different properties of materials in science. We did a test to find out the properties
of different materials. We pretended we were stranded on a desert island and needed to keep cool in the
hot sun. We could use a paper bag, paper plate, paper towel, tin foil, 2 strings and 2 clothespins to make
our hats.     

The second grade is making hats out of lunch supplies. This is a picture of some second graders wearing
our hats during science. We had to do a softness test and sweat-soaker test and stiffness test to that
helped us make the hats.
