Our Castles in the Room

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Make way for the Lords,Ladies, Sirs, Kings, and Queens! The 2nd graders had a week's lesson about medieval times. They read different poems about castles and created online coat of arms and tapestries. We had the Parent-Child Bonding Project where each family worked on a castle creation and a family coat of arms. Each day of the week, we had a King and a Queen of the Day and they get to proclaim two rules for their Kingdom and get to do the Royal Reading during DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time. They recited "Castles in the Sky" to all our visitors. Thanks to Jenny Chavez and Raul Vidanes for helping us turn our room into a magical castle and to all the parents for their all out support in the Parent-Child Bonding Project.
