Officer Buckle is a roly-poly bloke, dedicated to teaching schoolchildren important safety tips, such as never put anything in your ear and never stand on a swivel chair. The problem is, Officer Buckle’s school assemblies are dull, dull, dull, and the children of Napville just sleep, sleep, sleep. That is, until Gloria the police dog is invited along! Stealthily pantomiming each safety tip behind Officer Buckle’s back, Gloria wins the children’s hearts. Meanwhile Officer Buckle assumes the cheers and laughter are all for him.
At my science inservice yesterday we were discussing neat tricks other 2nd grade teachers were using to help teach difficult concepts. Thanks to the 2nd grade team at Twain I can share this cute subtraction rap!
On Monday the kids planted grass seed out in the hall with Mr. Mueller. We are going to start the plant science unit after Easter break and I wanted the kids to have a common experience to write a “How To” about! We can’t wait for our “grass” hair to grow on our cup that we drew a face on!
