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.

Deep Sea Diving

Mrs. Furman’s second-grade class went “deep sea diving’ into an informational text called Jellies. While we were looking at amazing coral reefs and jellyfish the size of whales, students learned the difference between a fact and an opinion.
