Why isn’t our Compost Cooking?

After tracking the compost in our tumbler for over a month, we are disappointed in the progress we are making.  The temperature inside the tumbler is still 80 degrees.  It is very wet and heavy from the water, food scraps and shredded cardboard we have been adding.  Are there any compost experts out there?  We would like your help.  Please comment below if you can help.  We will be checking our blog every morning.  Thank You for your help.  The Compost Kids

2nd Grade Comic Project

Second Graders will begin creating comics with Master Comic Bill Zimmerman and Artist Tom Bloom.  We’ll think of characters and plot with our own ideas!  Practice using his templates at Make Belief Comics.  This should be interesting!

Second Graders Publish Autobiographies

Second Graders are working on writing autobiographies in the computer lab.  We use Kidspiration software to organize our ideas and then write sentences.  Next we will edit to create a paragraph, publish and print.  Autobiographies can tell you about the incredible lives of the local second graders written by the students!  Biographies are true stories about a person written by other people.  Check some out hear at Bio 4 Kids.computer lab
