• Spending Time with Mrs. Claus
    The second grade class of Mrs. Christy Ard participated in a video conference with Mrs. Claus.  The children observed Santa's reindeer from the "live reindeer feed" and spoke with Mrs. Claus about Santa's prepartion for his big night.  Mrs. Claus read a story to the children and discussed the important parts of writing a friendly letter.  The children were provided with stationary to write their own letters to Santa.
    Mrs. Claus also taught the students how to sign the different colors of red, green, and white in American Sign Language.  The children used the different signs to complete a bracelt-making activity.  The lesson covered a variety of educational topics and kept the children thoroughly engaged.
