Today began the first day of our ABC Countdown! This is the 2nd grade teachers' way to make the last 26 days of school fun and engaging! Check out the link like to see all the fun things we have planned.
Then we played "Animal Salad" for our greeting, a twist to our "Shoe Salad" greeting. This is how you play. First we put all the animals in the center of our circle and toss the salad. (We posed for this picture right before the toss!) Then each student in turn picks an animal and goes around asking, "Is this your animal?" When they find a match they greet the student and the student greets back. Then its the new student's turn to select an animal and find its owner. Lots of fun and giggles here!
