We had a Skype with two second grade classes at Le'man Manhattan Prepatory School in New York City on Oct. 28. The students had to draw monster, then write specific details on how to draw it. We exchanged the details and how to draw a monster from the directions. Students compared their original monster to the one the class wrote. We spoke about what was good about the writing and what could have been better. This helped us improve our descriptive writing and technical writing.

Students recently completed their Shawnee movies. Students researched Shawnee, came up with interview questions, interviewed and filmed individuals in Shawnee on our community walk, completed an act of kindness for our Pay it Forward project and turned their research and writing into a movie. Here is a link to the completed website.

As part of a math extension for addition and subtraction, some students planned a birthday party. They had to make a budget, research items for a party, make a table, show all their work, write a paragraph explaining why they made the party the way they did, then come up with a way to present their party. The students did a wonderful job. Here are their videos.
