Mrs. Eastman's class got to play Secret Chicken recently. Secret Chicken is a rhythm game that's a 2nd grade favorite. Students listen to rhythms played by a rubber chicken and then write them down on their paper. Then, they reference a decoder page to find a letter that goes with each 4-beat rhythm. After 6 (or 7, or more!) letters, the secret location of the chicken is revealed. I wonder where chicken hid this week?

Students from Mrs. Horst's class won the “Let’s Read Challenge” by tracking the number of minutes our class read during the school days in October and November. Today, a representative from the Delta College PBS channel came to Tomek to deliver the prizes, encourage kids to read, and tell more about the Michigan Learning Channel. A small group of students who participate in a book club with our librarian, Mrs. Ord, were filmed talking about March Book Madness, book club and giving some book recommendations. If you get the PBS Station - Delta College, you’ll be able to see them on TV during the month of March!
