Second Grade Reports

Mrs. Furman’s second-grade class is learning about some AMAZING African Americans. Each student has been given a different person to learn about. When the students are finished writing their report, they will be giving an oral presentation of their person to the class. As the other students are listening to the report, they will be writing down three important facts that they have learned about each amazing African American.


Baker STEM Challenge

The STEM challenge in Mary Jean Klatte’s first-grade class at Baker was to “Build a Tower” using only cups, craft sticks, and cubes. The towers that were built were the result of figuring out through trial and error that a wide base made a sturdier structure!  The children worked in teams and learned that the “S” in STEM also stands for sharing.
