Go big or go home! That's the unofficial motto in our classroom. Of course, none of us ever choose to go home...we're too busy having fun with a capital B-I-G. When learning and teamwork is fun, engaging, and passionate, who has time to think about being anyplace else?
These superstars are vibrant 7 and 8-year-olds who are passionate about all things second grade!
Stop by and see us nurture our pet African Water frogs, make observations about Romeo and Juliet, the Northeast Florida bald eagles we follow by webcam, and transform into math "superheroes" as we bravely conquer challenging word problems.
Our school is located in a small farming and college community. Many children come from migrant families and have moved several times already in their first few years of school. 70% of our students are eligible for free or reduced lunch and 7 different languages are spoken at home. We love to look at the diversity in our classroom as a wonderful canvas for learning about each other on a daily basis. My awesome-possum kiddos love to remind me of our primary lesson regularly...we are a family and family sticks together.
My students are so excited for second grade because we get to learn all about plants! They asked if there was any way we could grow our own food right in the classroom. Hey, what a great idea!
This vertical garden will allow them to plant, nurture, and grow local foods right in our daily environment, regardless of the weather.
They will learn to value healthier food choices, meet national science and social studies standards, and come together using teamwork to reach a common goal.
If we're going to really learn about plants, let's go ahead and get our hands dirty!
