2nd Grade Students Earn a Game Board Party

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMrs. Baker’s students earned a game board party last Friday by using Smartypants words.  Each week Mrs. Baker introduces 3-4 challenging vocabulary words such as ancestors, veterinarian, delectable, salivated, etc.  Every time a student uses one of these words correctly, to show they know the meaning in his/her writing or a spoken sentence, they receive a magic word stone to put in the class jar.  Once the jar reaches a certain point a mystery reward is opened.  Not only do the students love this, but many of the parents are even trying to reinforce the use the words at home.  So far this year the class has learned a total of 25 Smartypants words.
