Social Emotional Strategies!

Second graders from Mrs. Serafino's class provide tried and true strategies for coping with a variety of different emotions. Learn how to regulate yourself when feeling over excited, calm yourself when feeling upset, cheer yourself up when feeling sad, gain confidence when feeling nervous, and wake up when feeling tired. Created and written by second grade students, these strategies will work for all ages!

Second Grade STEM Projects!

In writer's workshop the second graders are working on opinion writing.  They combined their STEM skills and writing skills to create a "toy" using all recyclable materials.  Then, using what they know about persuasive writing, they wrote their own commercial scripts to convince others to buy their invention! Their creativity and persuasiveness really shone in these amazing commercials!

As does the creativity of their teachers, Mrs. Gildersleeve, Mrs. Serafino, and Ms. Anderson!

Third Grade Continent Movies

We had been studying continents in third grade through the use of Virtual Reality, when one of our third graders, Madison, had a great idea for a green screen video...so here is the fruition of her vision!  Students researched, wrote a script, practiced, helped pick out backgrounds and voila - A beautifully crafted movie! The third graders did amazing work - very impressive!

Special thanks to Madison!  Enjoy!
