2nd Grade Open House

Two weeks ago, Banks invited us to Open House at his school.  We got to see what 2nd Grade is all about!
He showed us a math game they play on the Smart Board...


Those Smart Boards are super cool!  We feel very fortunate that all the classrooms at his school have one.

He showed us a paper he worked on based on the book "No Talking" by Andrew Clements...


They have just finished their IB Planner based on communication and this book fit right in.  They even had a no talking day in their classroom which forced them to use other types of communication.  I bet Mrs. Hughes loved the silence for a day!

He also showed us another project he did on communication...


We ended our night getting to see his rocket...


His school has Fabulous Friday.  He was excited to get his choice of rockets [reserved for 2nd Graders only].  He and 3 other friends got to build the rocket and get it ready for launch.  Friday is the big day for lift off...I can't wait to hear all about it.
