The intelligent, dedicated and entertaining students in Mrs. Burgess' 2nd grade class are learning about adjectives. They recently had a lot of fun working as partners and choosing relevant describing words for one another.
Students were encouraged to see beyond their partner's outside qualities and label them with positive adjectives that would build each other up. Sharing words like these helped promote an atmosphere matching the class expectations of respect, responsibility and caring.
Students had so much fun working with words, discussing their meanings and seeing their friends covered with word labels. The best part was covering Mrs. Burgess from head to toe with many clever, kind, interesting and thoughtful adjectives, too!
