We have been busy learning the routines of second grade and getting to know each other.  Students enjoyed playing People Bingo, All My Friends Have..., Guess Who, Me and My Bag, Agree/Disagree and many other class building activities.  I learned that this year's group of tigers love to surf, knit, travel, play soccer, swim, play wii, golf, show dogs, learn about different countries and much more.  It is going to be an exciting year!  
Meeting our 5th Grade Buddies was one of the highlights of the first week!  It was fun to see students jump right in and work collaboratively and enthusiastically to complete a fun filled obstacle course.  We are looking forward to our next Buddy Day!
