Baseball Day at Roberts

Mrs. Furman’s second-grade class celebrated Baseball/Softball Day. The students were asked to come to school dressed in their favorite baseball/softball team. Our class read a story called Ronald Morgan Goes to Bat. Students learned that there is more to being on a team than just being a great player. Students learned about the history of baseball. They couldn’t believe that baseball players use to use their bare hand to catch a ball! Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson were a BIG hit during our lessons. Our class answered comprehension questions while they watched the movie Everyone’s Hero. We finished out our day with a game of whiffle ball outside.

The Patchwork Quilt

Mrs. Furman’s 2nd-grade class read a book study called The Patchwork Quilt. The story is about a little girl’s grandmother who is making a special quilt with pieces of clothes from the whole family. But when her grandmother gets sick, she was determined to finish the quilt by herself. Each child in our class made a pillow to be able to take home and to help them remember this wonderful story. A special thank you to Mrs. Tideman (Laura Dishong’s mom) for helping the class make the pillows.

Dinosaur Research Reports in 2nd Grade

Mrs. Furman’s 2nd grade started writing Dinosaur Research Reports. To kick off the unit, the class excavated dinosaur eggs!! The class learned about how fossils are formed. The students learned the importance of finding dinosaur egg fossils. The class pretended to be paleontologists and used a chisel to excavate a baby dinosaur out of a rock egg fossil. Boy, it was hard work! The class had to use patience and perseverance just like a real paleontologist.
