2B Joins Progressive Story Project
We are participating in a month long collaborative project involving 4 other schools with boys and girls from New York to Australia. We are writing a story together with our friends in New York writing the first part while other students in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Australia wrote the middle paragraphs. 2B wrote the ending, and our writing will soon be combined into a voice thread story from around the globe!
We are planning to talk via Skype with two of our cooperating classes soon.

Jack at the Winter Olympics!!

Jack F., a student in 2B, recently attended the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, with his grandmother.

Here are some excerpts from Jack's travel journal!

We went in a limo. It was awesome. Then we went to Nonni's friend's house. We saw a hockey match between Switzerland and USA. The score as 1-3 and USA won! We went on the sky train. It was awesome!! We went skating and looked at pins. I loved the pins! We saw speed skating. Canada was in first place for the gold and Netherlands was in 2nd and 3rd places. It was awesome! We saw curling. It was France vs. USA. USA won! There were 3 more games. One of the games was Canada vs. Denmark. Canada won! I got an Olympic mascot named Sunni. I saw a gold bar and went to a dolphin show. We saw manatees, dolphins, and otters. I saw Miga, another Olympic mascot, and I saw the Olympic cauldron.

Abraham Lincoln - Our 16th President

Mr. Lincoln's Boys is one of the stories we read which helped us think about the fun times that the Lincoln boys had in the White House!

What if Abe Lincoln were to visit the United States today? How has the world changed since he was president in 1861-1865? What would you tell Mr. Lincoln about the world of 2010? What new inventions do we have? Do you think our world of 2010 is better or worse?
