We've been practising for our end-of-year concert, which is next Wednesday. The theme is "respect", so we chose a song about respecting the environment. It's Jack Johnson's The 3Rs. It's a really great song and we love singing it!

First, we took the staples out of the pads, so we had loose pieces of paper. We painted them on one side with poster paints and let them dry. We also painted a larger sheet of art paper blue. Later, we cut up the smaller, coloured pieces to make a collage. If you look closely, you might be able to see some of our tries at spelling underneath the paint!
With Christmas coming up, our school is collecting non-perishable food to give to a charity for Christmas. Non-perishables are foods such as potato chips, biscuits, canned fruit and vegetables, rice and pasta that will last a while, without being in the fridge. We have an empty box in our classroom, which we're hoping to fill by the end of the week!

We can't believe that it's almost time for the holidays and the end of Grade 2!
