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.

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!
