In second grade we take some time every month to bake a special treat. This is a great time to practice following directions, working together, learning about new foods, kitchen skills, and it is usually DELICIOUS!
This time we found a recipe in a book that we were reading about Canada. It is called the Nanaimo Bar and it is a 3 layer chocolate bar that is a favorite in British Columbia! I think it is now a favorite with most second graders also!
Our morning “tweets” continue to be a favorite routine every morning. Students get to write about something that is on their mind and put it up to display with their silly picture. We are working on adding a few more details to make our stories more interesting. I am noticing students taking time to read the thoughts of others and enjoy sharing their writing every day.
