In celebration of finishing the Magic School Bus book Sink or Swim, Mrs. Lawrence’s second graders had an afternoon in Hawaii. Without leaving the classroom they learned about the many islands that comprise Hawaii, the distance from the contiguous United States, and made leis. By far the highlight of the experience was having pineapple and coconut. Now – where to next second graders? Also, the first three second grade students to reach their first reward in a long term reading project picked their prizes – a book! Well done! Yet the project continues and everyone will be a winner when each goal is achieved. We are so proud of them!
