We have been learning to locate and read points on a coordinate graph.We played two games to practice these skills. The first was a team game in which each team attempted to be the first to place four magnets in a row. In the second partner game, one player hid stickers on a coordinate grid and his/her partner guessed ordered pairs until they found all the stickers. To help us remember to move horizontally first, we said that you must go down the hall before you can go up the elevator.

Second grade skyped with an astronaut! Click here for the bio Colonel Kimbrough. It was an awesome experience! Both adults and children learned so much about the space program!
This is a short segment from the 50 minutes we spent skyping.
A big thank you to Mrs. Daugherty for organizing this event for us!
