Our 2nd graders are holding a food drive of our own for the Highland Food Pantry! The Guided Reading teachers will be collecting these items from Tuesday, February 19—Friday, February 22. The food pantry is currently collecting tuna and tuna helper. The food pantry also suggested a favorite breakfast cereal or a favorite after school snack. The students are encouraged to bring things they love to eat! Thank you for helping us as we learn about citizenship in our community!
Miss McCune’s class has been studying how animals’ bodies help them survive in nature. They did an experiment where they discovered why birds have different beaks. Ducks have wider beaks to help them scoop food. Warblers have pointy beaks to help them be precise when getting their food on the ground, avoiding unwanted objects like rocks. 🦆🐦🦅
Girl Scout Troop 80 is encouraging students to become engineers. They put together a variety of STEM bags with the needed supplies and directions in brown lunch bags. Students in Mrs. Laird’s class were very excited to try out these STEM projects. They worked in small groups to choose a project and make it. Students had to create balloon rockets, shelters, and musical instruments to name a few. They had a lot of fun with this hands-on learning! Thank you Girl Scout Troop 80!
Mrs. Warnecke's 2nd grade class has recently implemented flexible seating. Students have the choice of using balance balls, wiggle seats, yoga mats, cushions with flex bands for their feet, or standing. Allowing students to choose where they are most comfortable learning helps them stay focused throughout the day. Flexible seating allows for a variety of room arrangements and students really enjoy having choice! --
