Weekly News: January 13 – January 17, 2020

Second Grade

Second graders finished up last semester by learning about many important people from history. As a culminating activity for their Biography project, the second graders presented very eloquent monologues of their chosen person. Dressed in character, they told about the life and times of their person from history. The audience enjoyed monologues from Walt Disney, Dolly Parton, Davy Crockett, Harriet Tubman, Lucille Ball, Jacqueline Kennedy, Julia Child, Neil Armstrong, Joan of Arc, George Washington, Black Beard, Albert Einstein, Selena Quintanilla, Jerry Rice, Clara Barton, Jane Goodall, and Jenny Lind. They did such an AMAZING job on their presentations.
