Pass It On Charity
On Monday, TCS students were introduced to three different nonprofit charities during Whole School Morning Meeting. Birds of Prey, The Charleston Animal Society, and Pet Helpers all aim to help our animal friends. On Friday, students were given the option to vote for one of these charities. After a charity is established, they will focus their efforts on raising money for this charity through Pass It On.
Second Graders are learning to breathe life into their own poems by delving into reading poetry. They started a new unit in reading this week. Students began by discussing the unique characteristics of poetry. They practiced identifying the tone of the poem by reading it aloud and listening to the rhythm and rhyme. Scholars read several poems and identified the author’s perspective based on the literal meaning. As students are exposed to different types of poetry and the way it is written, they will become more confident in their own ability to write poetry.
St. Patrick’s Day
This Friday, Second Graders came into school to find that the leprechauns had visited their classroom and created some mischief! Students found all kinds of green items scattered about the room and a message on the board from a leprechaun. Later in the day, students all gathered for a special performance by Tom Morley and Hazel Ketchum. Afterwards, they met with partners to go on a “hunt” to search for a gift that was left for them from the “leprechauns.” This year, each student received a green shamrock necklace and a limerick to enjoy.
