We had a wonderful first day in second grade! I am truly amazed at how quickly the children have fallen back into the routine of school. We participated in a variety of “getting to know one another” activities today, as we will continue to do throughout this first week.
A class favorite today was an activity called, “Getting to Know You”. In this activity, the kids began by answering and recording a variety of questions about themselves, such as their favorite color, favorite food, how many letters in their first name, as well as many others. Once we gathered our information, the game began. The kids were challenged with finding classmates that matched their own choices. For example, if Reed’s favorite color was blue, he needed to find a classmate who also chose blue as their favorite color. This classmate would then write their initials next to this question on Reed’s paper. A classmate could only initial a paper once. This turned out to be an extremely engaging activity for the kids, as we learned many new things about one another.
The children should be very proud of themselves, as they worked hard throughout the day and consistently made great choices. Bravo! I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
