Week in Review

Happy November! We had a wonderful end to October this week. 

We started off our week with a super positive message from NED. This assembly talked to us about never giving up, encouraging others, and doing our best. This assembly was brought to us by our amazing PTO!
Thanks PTO!

Room 200 students spent the week studying our different types of pumpkins in our observation station. They measured and sketched them to gather their information needed for a project. 

We also gathered information from a video focusing on Libby's pumpkins in Morton, Illinois. 

Then we used our information and pumpkin specimens to make informational videos (and a huge mess). 

Here is one of their videos:

We also spent time using our best teacher voices this week by making a few informational videos for math and Fundations. 

Here are a few of our fantastic teaching videos:

This was also a very exciting week for two of our students... Loris and Loopy! L & L created their first podcast this week showcasing one of their most recent reads, Bink and Gollie.

Please enjoy the premiere episode of Loris and Loopy!

We also had a week filled with amazing guest readers. It is so fun to hear what talented and fluent readers they are all becoming. 

Last but not least, we had a spooktacular classroom party and school parade. Thank you to all of the parents who help with the party. It was a huge success. 


  1. Wow! Another full week of learning in Room 200!! I love seeing how you are becoming so comfortable with your video making and speaking fluently. Enjoy your 3-day week!

  2. WOW what a great week you all had! We loved to see all you children helping to read books and we were so informed with your pumpkin videos. You used adjectives such as gross, slimy, sticky, gooey, and more of the word gross to describe the insides of the those pumpkins. My family sometimes think the inside of a pumpkin is slimy and gross too.

    Keep up with your learning and having fun while doing so. You are all awesome 2nd graders! Your parents are all so very proud of each of you!
