william’s 2nd grade expo
what is a 2nd grade expo, you might ask? well i didn’t know either. it was from 9:15-10:45. amelia and i rolled into the parking lot @ 9:10 and were quickly redirected to the church a mile down the road where we were to catch the SHUTTLE to the school. hmmm. ok.
amelia was beside herself at the thought of riding on william and zachary’s bus.
i’ve never seen anything like this.
we got to the school and in the gym, all 6 2nd grade classes were there and 6 stations were set up. we rotated every 10 minutes where we participated in different activities together–tangrams, computer math games, an art project on the life cycle of a butterfly, planting a marigold, reading together and mad libs (parts of speech). it completely blew my mind. i didn’t see one kid without at least one parent there (i was told there are 133 2nd graders). many had 2 parents there. after the gym, we went to william’s class where he showed us some things he’d been working on this year. i showed up with 1 kid and left with 4 (all 3 of my own plus i picked one up along the way).
we got shuttled back to the van and had a great day. somehow i managed to get every single thing accomplished on that list. it’s a friday the 13th miracle.
