Last Friday 2nd grade students became detectives to solve the case of the missing principal!! They have been learning about drawing conclusions, so they had to use this skill to look at a crime scene, read suspect interviews, and draw conclusions about who kidnapped the principal!! They solved the case and discovered suspect #3, Mrs. McNeill, kidnapped Mr. Rollins. 😱 Not to worry though, Mr. Rollins has been returned safe and sound! Awesome job 2nd grade for helping solve the case!! #bprd #ohtheplacesyoullgo *No principals were harmed during this assignment.
Mrs. White’s class went outside last Friday morning to have science and writing class! We have been studying “Stormy Skies” on Mystery Science and using the clouds to predict the weather. We went outside to do some cloud watching and predict the weather later in the day. Not a single cloud was in the sky, so students used their imaginations, decided on a cloud, drew their cloud and wrote a prediction. It was a lot of fun! 💙#bprd #bbelem
