In The 2nd Grade

In the 2nd Grade we hear stories about Yellow Jackets. Yellow Jackets that sting but that doesn't hurt, really. Yellow Jackets that are babies and hang out on the playground. Yellow Jackets that get smooshed on the sidewalk by your friends' scooter.

In the 2nd Grade we make sure our sentences have capital letters and periods. We make sure that our d's aren't really b's and that our b's aren't really d's.

In the 2nd Grade we name a chair that wobbles, Mr. Wobbles-obviously. Then we argue about who gets Mr. Wobbles every chance we get.

In the 2nd grade a conversation about Grammar makes us think of a youtube video big brother showed us of a guy, with no arms, doing cool tricks.

In the 2nd grade we pull teeth during Math Meeting, before 10 am. Even though we were told to leave it be. And because it's 10 a.m. your teacher wants to hurl by just looking at the blood, the hole, and the tooth. But your priceless grin keeps the heaving at bay.

In the 2nd grade we work hard but we play hard too. Some of us love to give hugs and all think counting by one's is easy peasy lemon squeasy but aren't too sure about words like "enough." Those dang digraphs.

Oh it's quite the days in the 2nd grade.
