Our 2nd graders are just completing a mini-study on pirates. We have read several books, reserached pirates, and used all of our CLUE strategies. Be looking for the completed packet of Pirate activities coming home soon.
Our first graders are really kickin’ up their heels with our cowboy MESS. Remember “MESS” stands for Mind-Explosive Super Study!!! We have touched on all of our CLUE strategies, and most of them several times. You can check out the tab at the top labeled “CLUE Strategies” to learn more. Here’s a few snapshots of our time together.
As you know we have been working hard on our current mini-study about cowboys. We were excited to take a field trip to meet a REAL cowboy and his horses. We had pony races, learned all about being a cowboy, and even got a take a picture with a real horse and some of us sat on a real saddle!
Take a look at all the fun: (Click on each picture to enlarge.)
I am attaching a PowerPoint presentation I prepared for SAT-10 Assessment Night, for those of you who did not attend. I have included an overview of what is on the test and a few sample questions. (You must have PowerPoint on your computer to view.)

I have sent home a project sheet detailing all the requirements for our timeline projects. I have also included a grading rubric. This is NOT an optional project and is due no later than Monday, March 4. This is a fun project and we have completed a timeline, in class, of Steve Jobs. Students picked their own person to research and we are super excited to see the final products.
Here’s a sample timeline we completed together in class about Steve Jobs:
Here are a few examples from last year:
I am providing each child with the poster board to put your timeline on. You can do it either horizontally or vertically. DO NOT use a full sized poster board. We will not have room to display them all for ThinkShow.
