School's out for Summer!

Bookworms,

I miss you already!  I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation!  Come back and visit our classroom blog anytime, and leave a comment if you would like.  Also, always feel free to send me an e-mail, I would love to hear from you!

Don't forget to read over the summer, write in your summer journal (and even your new sunflower one!), and have lots and lots of fun! 

Second grade, here we come!

Flag Day



We created our own version of the American flag, which we decided to turn into a kite to honor the special anniversary of our flag!



We are so excited to celebrate International Day tomorrow.  We will be celebrating with our food tasting at 11:10-12:00.
