We love Mrs. Alsup!

We have been so fortunate this year to work with a kind and loving teacher; Mrs. Alsup.  She has worked hard to teach our class so many things!  We are so grateful to have her in Room 203! Here are some reasons why we think she is incredible.

Rock and Roll! Second Grade Geologists love learning about ROCKS!

Our class has been learning about one of my personal favorite things… ROCKS! Why are they so incredibly amazing, you might be wondering? Besides the fact that they are extremely old, each rock is a little clue about what geological events have taken place. Take, for instance, the beautiful Wasatch mountains. We can tell by studying their layers that sediment that was once horizontal, is now diagonal! Rocks not only tell us about our earth’s history, but they are also fun to collect! I have been collecting rocks for over 12 years!

Let’s share our knowledge about rocks by completing the survey below. Good luck, have fun, and keep on ROCKin’!

Getting Ready for Core Testing! It’s that time of year again…

Our second grade class is preparing for our end of year testing. To help with this review, I have included a link to our very own class UTIPS webpage. This is a site with specific review tests, specifically designed for second grade, to help aide your child in taking this assessment. As we get closer to the end of April, PLEASE help your child review for this test by visiting our UTIPS website! Also, remember the last week of April your child needs to come to school on time, well rested, and ready to do their very best! Thanks for all you do!!!

Under the Sea

Our second graders have been learning about SEA LIFE. We have activated our prior knowledge about what goes on in the sea. We have also added to our schemas by reading informative non-fiction texts!! A Read Naturally group read a story about anglerfish, and that got us all excited to learn more about bioluminescent deep sea creatures. (we added to our schema that bioluminescent sea life actually create their own light under water!!)
