Fun in the Sun!

Wow! We had so much fun today on our Beach Day! Even though the sky was cloudy, we pretended we were on the beach on a sunny day! We took our beach towels, books, and sunglasses outside to read. We read for about 20 minutes then we took a break and played a beach ball game. We named a number then we counted as we passed the ball around and if you had the ball when  that number was said you were out of the game and moved to the middle of the circle. We counted by 2's, 5's,  and 10's. We also played with days of the week and months of the year.

Then we played a relay game with our second grade buddies in Mrs. Loftis's class. We put all our shoes in a pile. Each student had to run to the pile, find and put on their shoes, and then run back and tag the next person. We won by a hair!

We were tired! We then ate our popsicles on our beach towels.

When we went inside, we started our writing project titled Second Grade was a Ball. The students colored a beach ball and then glued their writing on the ball. Next, they spread glue on  construction paper and sprinkled sand on the paper to resemble the beach. Then they glued their beach ball on the construction paper. It looked like the ball was sitting on the beach!

After lunch, we read some more on our beach towels. We were then ready to get our  real beach balls! The students chose their beach ball and then  had their second grade friends sign their beach balls.  It was so much fun! We ended our day by playing Go Fish and eating a snack of gold fish.

It is hard to believe we only have two days left! This year has flown by. I will miss this class very much. They are wonderful children!
