2nd Graders in Flight...In Honor of Ruth Law

The story is "Ruth Law Thrills A Nation." In case you are wondering who Ruth Law is, she was the first American to fly 590 miles in one day. While she did not reach her goal of flying from Chicago to NYC in one day, she did set a record for the longest flight recorded. She set this record in 1916. My class was thrilled today when we took our art project, hand-made paper airplanes, outside for an airplane race. I don't know who had more fun, the students or me!

After racing, we gathered on the front lawn for a group picture. I have to tell you: the girls actually did better at making and flying the planes than the boys! Give me five, girls!!!!!

These students in my class (Mrs. Armstrong's second graders) made the honor roll for the 5th six weeks grading period. They all earned a 90/A or higher in conduct and 13/18 met their AR goal! Take a bow, second graders! You deserve to be honored!

Mrs. Armstrong, It seems as though you are incorporating varied methods to make learning possible for all your students, which is probably why you are Talladega City's Teacher of the Year!
