It has been such a busy time in second grade. Last Friday, May Crowning was a beautiful tribute to our Blessed Mother. The children did a great job leading the community in prayer and song.

We have been practicing for First Holy Communion which is here tomorrow. A dear friend of our school community continued her tradition of making personalized rosaries for each student and they were dropped off today. How blessed are we to have people we haven’t even met praying for us with such love!

We worked very hard this week on creating our coral reef and undersea world. We joined the Ocean Challenge 2019; a global effort to save coral reefs world-wide. You know they are engaged in a project when they don’t want to stop for lunch!

We’ve even found time to practice for our spring concert coming up next week. There’s a sneak peek below.

We’ve finished our weather unit and have started learning about plants. We dissected a seed to look at the embryo inside and labeled all the parts. Today Mr.Pellino helped us make terrerariums to take home. We’ve also started preparing for May Crowning which will be here before we know it!

This week we continued learning about the weather. We read “The Cloud Book” by Tomie DePaola, then made our own models. We’ve started our final weather project on Book Creator and are having fun adding photos, text and audio to our books. We are continuing our Lenten journey as we read about all the names of Jesus and add them to our cross.

Today we learned about why St Patrick is a saint and that there is more to this feast day than leprechauns. I read “Jamie O’Rourke and the Big Potato” in my best Irish brogue- not very good, but very fun! We made our own wind vanes with Mr. Pellino from Talcott Mountain Science Center which will help us as we study the weather. We also read with our Kindergarten Book Buddies today which is not only fun, but great for reading fluency!
