“You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!”
― Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss
|Ms. Riplinger's Second Grade Classroom!|
We have an Elf on the Shelf in Room 117 from the North Pole! The students have voted, and his name is "Bob". He is a silly elf that has been doing many fun things around our classroom each day!
The first graders have been learning about the different customs and traditions of different countries and cultural groups around the world during the holidays. We have made our suitcases out of cereal boxes to travel around the world. Inside our suitcases we have our own passports and journals that we have made. It will sure be a time that these first graders remember! Check back later for more pictures, as next week we will have our Australian Beach party and our Polar Express day!
We are learning about all of the different holidays around the world and in Germany, they have fun with making gingerbread houses. Room 117 did a twist on the gingerbread house and instead, made gingerbread trees!
December was a very busy month- Room 117 sure had a lot of fun! See below for how we celebrated the winter season, our "Holidays Around the World", our winter holiday party, and Polar Express!
