Stay up to date with IMES 2nd grade happenings!
In 2nd grade we spent the month of March sharing biographies. Some of the biographies we read were of lesser-known people like Tony Sarg, the man who created the balloons for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade (the book was called Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade by Melissa Sweet). Some were more well-known people, like Jacques Costeau (Manfish by Jennifer Berne) and Dr. Seuss (The Boy on Fairfield Street: How Ted Geisel Grew Up to Become Dr. Seuss by Kathleen Krull). The last biography we read was A Picture Book of Harry Houdini by David Adler. The students then created a timeline of the important events in Houdini's life using Pic Collage on the iPad. Here is their awesome work!
