Skatepark Fun!!!

Push. Skate. Ride. Learn Science!!!

     Second Graders learned the physics of skateboarding today during our field trip to the local skate park. As Mr. Davis modeled how friction makes skateboarding possible, students were constantly engaged with hands-on activities and explorations. Our rad little learners tried their balance skills out on Indo-boards with Ms. Brooke and picked up bottles of rice with only a pencil (and friction!) with Ms. Franci. Our trip concluded with a derby car competition down the ramps. Each student created their car using the wheel and axle systems taught in class. It was quite an exciting day for our Second Grade friends!!

Rocket Math Has Commenced

    This week we blasted off with the start of our Rocket Math. Students were so excited to test their speed against their accuracy!! Rocket Math aims to strengthen each student’s automaticity with basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and even division facts. Second Graders can move up to more challenging facts each week as they progress through levels A-Z.
