Yesterday we had our second STAR party celebrating the fantastic behavior of all of the second graders! Out of the whole second grade, everyone was a star or a rock star! We are so proud of each and every second grader for making such great choices during the month. For our October star party, the stars and rock stars got to watch a movie. We watched the movie Spookley the Square Pumpkin. The rock stars also got to enjoy popcorn during the movie.
“Bee” a “bright” kid!
Yesterday, the second graders participated in a Think! Energy with E-power Bright Kids program. At the assembly, students learned about energy and natural resources. The students were told which of our resources were renewable and which were nonrenewable. They were also told a few new tricks on how to save energy as well as the importance of saving energy.
The assembly also discussed open and closed circuits. We did a fun experiment to learn that we were all conductors of energy! Each second grader stood palm to palm to make a closed circuit which made the “energy stick” light up. We then tested paper and aluminum foil to see if they were conductors or insulators. Each teacher was given an energy stick for their classroom.
Each child that returned their permission slip took home a Bright Kids Energy Kit. Inside of the kit is light bulbs, a night light, stickers and a pamphlet. All that PPL asks is that you complete and return the family worksheet. Please send in the family worksheet no later than October 20th.
Last Friday was our first STAR Party! The students loved it! Each day, students start with 4 stars. During the day they can either earn a star by making good choices or lose a star for not making the best choices. At the end of the month, all of the students’ stars are averaged together. If students average 3 stars, they are considered a star student. If students average 4 or more stars, they are considered a rock star. For the month of October, star students were able to bring in a toy or game to play with their friends. Rock star students were able to bring in a toy or a game and were able to enjoy a freeze pop! All of the students in our class were stars or rock stars! I am so proud of them for making such great choices during the first month of school! The students are already excited for our next star party at the end of October!
