Bad to the Bone

Today was Biker day at APS. We loved dressing up like we rode motorcycles and could pull off tattoos! I think the teachers had more fun then the students. It is homecoming week so we had some of the Aggie football player here this morning to read to our students. We had Mr. Nick come to our classroom and read. He read Where the Wild Things Are and the kids loved it! Thank you Senior football players and Go Aggies!!! Here are a few pictures from our day.

Pod 2 teachers are cool.

 Got to love the people I work with!

This week we are studying Johnny Appleseed and we are also working with nouns. I am a blog stalker so I got these cute ideas elsewhere. Thanks you Life in First Grade and Mrs. Jump's Class for these wonderful ideas. I thought I would share :) Have a great Tuesday!

A Day on the Farm

This past Friday the Farm came to APS. It was a very busy and eventful day. My students loved getting to go outside and learn about farm animals. They got to  feel sheep wool, pet a baby goat, and hear a baby pig squeal. We all dressed up in our farmer's attire and had a good ole time. Here are a few pictures of Farm day.  We have homecoming week coming up and a I can't wait to post all about it.

Nature Walk

Last week our Story was Henry and Mudge and the Starry Night.  On Friday after we had taken all of our test, we went outside and took a nature walk. I gave the kids a sheet of paper and they had certain things to look for. We were looking for things that Henry and Mudge saw in the story like grass, trees, and flowers. It was very fun and the kids loved being outside.

What a good looking group

Going into Space

This week  we have being studying space. We have learned all about astronauts and what their jobs are in space. We got to watch some cool videos from the NASA website too. On Friday, we did a neat experiement. The word Experiement was one of our amazing words this week so this worked out perfect. I learned this experiement from one of my great college professfors. You take two film containers and alka seltzer. Put a little water in one container and a lot in the other. Have the kids predict which container they think will launch higher. You can make a chart or graph (this week in math we were working with graphs) Go outside drop the alka seltzer in the container and turn it over. It will lauch the container into the air. I told the kids we were going to launch our own ROCKET.. It went great and the kids loved it. My year in 2nd grade is going great so far :) I am so blessed to get to teach at such a wonderful school and with such a great bunch of women. Here are a few pictures from the rocket launch.
