Landforms and a Dragon

Multicultural night is tomorrow night and 2nd grade is all about Asia!  We put up all kinds of art, which I will take lots of pictures of tomorrow night but I wanted to share our masterpiece. I put it together this morning after we worked on the pieces last week. The original idea for our huge dragon came from HERE.  I drew him based on that picture. 

Here's the BEFORE:

And here's the AFTER:

He came out beautifully and the kids were so proud of their work.  All the 2nd graders made the scales : )  I also pulled out some Dr. Seuss things today to prepare for Read Across America Day on Friday. We will also be watching/reading/listening to many Dr. Seuss books on the iPad throughout the week. The pile of Dr. Seuss silly bands and stickers were Target dollar spot finds this summer. I'm impressed with myself that I kept them and remembered where I put them : )

This weekend I worked on some things for the Social Studies 2nd grade teachers.  We split our teaching and 3 of us teach science and 3 teach social studies.  Since I teach science, I don't do much with social studies but they asked for some games and I found the cutest clipart!  I am pretty excited about this pack and it makes me wish I taught Social Studies!
