Today was Ben’s 2nd grade end of the year class party. Each of the kids did an acrostic poem presentation about an important civil rights leader, and Ben’s group had Martin Luther King. After that, each child shared their writing portfolios with their parents. This portfolio included all their writings from the entire year and Ben was able to highlight his favorite piece of writing (Captain Underpants), something he can do well or had improved upon (a postcard), a sample story map (about Halloween), and so much more.
The kids also enjoyed pizza and ice cream, as well as a few other games and activities. One of the activities was to highlight what they wanted to do this summer.
We are so proud of what Ben accomplished this year with Mrs. DeMerchant. We will miss her very much.
