First, a huge "thank you" is in order to everyone who was able to stop by and visit us on Free For All Friday on Dec. 11. We had a small group, but lots of fun! If you weren't able to make it, feel free to ask Ms. Nicky for more information about WEBB our Saturday Enrichment program here at BASE. You can also follow this link for more info, too.
Trees & Shrubs week gave us the chance to do a lot of fun projects. Above you'll see an example of the glittery mini pine trees we made from a pine cones. We also used this week as an opportunity to learn about and make our own Family Trees. The kids had a great time discussing the differences and similarities between each others families.
Another experience we had this week was when we learned about the parts of trees and made diagrams labeling what was what. We also "had a hand" in making a Class Christmas Tree that used all of our hand prints for greenery!
Free For All Friday is this week!

We're glad to be back to blogging after a quick break for Thanksgiving. The second graders kicked off the start of December's Winter Wonderland theme by learning about Winter Wildlife this week. On Monday we worked in groups to create giant portraits of ourselves as bears!
This week we also learned about how animals prepare for winter when Mr. Mike taught us a game in which we had to be squirrels foraging for acorns. We had to use our heads to find good hiding places for our food so that the other squirrels couldn't find and steal away our winter supplies!
Also, check our our awesome woodsy winter owls. Some of us got so into making them that we created several at a time!
