We are so happy to have celebrated our First Reconciliation. Our second graders have learned so much about forgiveness and God’s mercy. Our class will participate in the sacrament once again in March.
In social studies, our second graders continue to learn about Black History Month. We have learned about segregation, integration, civil rights, boycotts, marches, abolitionists, Harriet Tubman and Ruby Bridges. We look forward to learning about Barack Obama, Frederick Douglass, and Rosa Parks.
In science, the Edventuremore presenter led the second graders on a lesson about energy and electricity. We expanded our knowledge and vocabulary to include scientific ideas about circuits, loads, conductors, switches, and energy sources. The second graders then designed “BLING” jewelry, wearable art, inventions and creations all focused on using a battery source and an LED light. The science lesson was a “brilliant” success!
In language arts, the second graders are being encouraged to write new stories and new research projects to share with the NDV community. Our new school newspaper editor has asked the second graders to submit some of their new creative stories so that they can be published in the first edition of our school newspaper.
