Summer wrapped up her visual assignment for class last night. I have to say that I am ready for spring break. I suppose that if we hadn't waited until Wednesday to start it, it may not have been so much. But a second grader cant start without you. They have no vision, because they really have never seen any examples of projects like this. So we discussed( I told her what I thought was easiest and best based on supplies I already had in the house). There is a large world map on Grady's wall, so we used it for our inspiration. Painted some old display boards. I cut out the land masses. she labeled them and the oceans. Then we went hunting for pics of sea creatures. She found some in old coloring books, we copied a few out of a very old TimeLife book from the 70s, and I did find a couple in google images(btw-be careful what you google when searching for images. I was horrified when searching for baby seals and kept getting hits of pics of them being clubbed, thank goodness Summer was busy coloring and cutting. It was BAD.)
I was worried because I worked last night and Summer had to finish the project without me. Jason helped her label everything and she did a great job with modge-podge-ing it all down.
She is proud of it. Hope she still is after turning it in.
Summer has had a great week. She was recognized in an assembly and given a certificate for Buffalo Wild Wings. Also we got a note home that she was chosen to have lunch with the principal and a group of other outstanding students. They get to have Tony's Pizza and Sub Shop. Lucky bum! And to top it off, she won a tee shirt and some crazy sunglasses for a fund raiser.
So proud of that girl. I love weeks like this:)
