Mr. Daniels' class recently took a trip to the Kenai River. The class also is going to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge to study wetlands and bear awareness this month. The students also have studied the origin of the Cherokee alphabet, called the Syllabary, and learned that in 1821, Sequoyah began the nine-year creation of the Syllabary so that Cherokee people could write down their stories and myths. Guess how long it took to create the English Alphabet? 4,000 years. Quite an accomplishment for the Cherokee Nation.
Mrs. McCoy and Mrs. Peterson's second-graders spent the week studying plants. The student planted seeds, watched them sprout, wrote observations in bean biologist books and read some new nonfiction books about plants. The week ended with plant centers, where students read about Vincent Van Gogh and his love of sunflowers, painted their own sunflower pictures and labeled the parts of a sunflower. The week ended on a "sunny" note.
Reflections begins Monday. The theme is "A Different Kind of Hero." For more information, call Mim Updike at 262-8801.
