I hope all of you have had an opportunity to walk through the halls, which have turned into a beautiful art gallery for Arts and Poetry Night. The second grade poems can be found in the main hallway and were written during our visit with Lyn Hoopes. During her visit, students wrote poems about their weavings and the photos that inspired the weavings, which were created in art class. These poems are free verse, which have no structure. We will continue to honor Poetry Month next week by writing a few different styles of poems, such as cinquains and acrostics.
We have started adding to our Global Connections bulletin board outside of the classroom. Students are adding facts they have learned from inquiry, writing about family members that have special connection to another country, or sharing a fact learned during a classroom discussion. This bulletin board will continue to grow as we learn more information strengthening our knowledge of the global world.
If you or someone in your family has a special connection to a country, please consider coming into the classroom and sharing with the second grade. The more exposure the students have to different cultures from around the world, the more the they will understand how interconnected we are in this world.
