This year Nerstrand adapted a new math curriculum called Bridges and Number Corner. Here are a few pictures of 2nd graders hard at work.
On Wednesday, October 31st Nerstrand did the traditional Harvest Parade through downtown Nerstrand. Students enjoyed dressing up and parading through town collecting lots of yummy goodies.
On September 28th the entire school of Nerstrand walked to the Big Woods State for Discovery Day. This year our theme was migration. Students traveled to 4 different stations to learn hands on about migration. The stations included a Migration Headache game, an obstacle course, craft station, and walk to the falls. We ended the day with a delicious apple snack from PTO.
This year we were one of 11 schools selected to be a part of the Como Zoo Residency Program. The zoo will come and visit our classroom twice and we will visit the zoo throughout the year. We will learn hands on about the Rainforest and Tundra and get a chance to go behind the scenes at the zoo. Students will also get to make enrichments for the zoo animals and make observations of their learning in the zoo journals.
