Science: Last spring the first and second graders planted some potatoes in the outdoor classroom. We planted the potatoes in large flower pots, because the soil was too hard and rocky. This year’s class of 1st and 2nd graders dug those up on Friday.The potatoes that we dug up were small and odd shaped. This gave us a great opportunity to discuss the reason that this occurred. The class did a great job of using their knowledge of plants to infer why the potatoes were small and shaped as they were.

The second graders are reviewing the math facts for the doubles. Today was the first timed tests over those facts.

We do a fair amount of review in all subject areas to begin the year. Please keep in mind that we also read and discuss more in-depth subject matter than is on the homework papers.
