Research Projects and Reading WIGs

Creative Minds

Ms. Adrienne’s second grade Coyotes have been working in small groups to research famous people during their listening groups.

So, how will the students demonstrate what they know about these famous people? Here’s a look…

The Amelia Earhart group is making a poster and a play. One of the characters is Earhart’s airplane! Quite clever!Here








The John F. Kennedy group created a song to perform.

It is a reenactment of his painting process for the Pablo Picasso group.

The Steve Jobs group created props for their presentation!

A Frank Lloyd Wright Group created a poster and brought in supplies to build a farm – just like architects did themselves!

The Charles Darwin group is making a play about Darwin setting sail on the Beagle and meeting a bug!

The remaining groups will select what products to present when they are finished reading their books.

Keep up the good work, Coyotes!


Class Reading WIG

As a class, Ms. Adrienne’s students created an in-class reading WIG at the beginning of February. The goal was for at least one student to move up three reading levels by the end of the year.

The students were – and continue to be – very supportive of one another as they move up in their reading levels and encourage each other when they feel challenged.

Recently, student Landon reached the class’s goal! He is the first, but likely not to be the only Coyote, to move up three levels since starting the WIG.

As exciting as this was, the students didn’t want their WIG to be over – and revised their WIG to keep it up and continue to track everyone’s progress.

Way to go, Coyotes!
