Pumpkins and Cookies Make Learning Fun for Second Grade
TKA second grade teachers Kari Polk and Amanda Russell are using creative methods of teaching their students to make learning fun and effective! In the month of October, the students completed a pumpkin book report project and made cookies in class.
Pumpkin book reports were completed in early October. Each student selected a character from a book and decorated a pumpkin to resemble the character. They also completed a book report worksheet about the book and then presented their report orally to the class.
Later in October, when the students were learning about measurements, they made Cake Batter No Bake Cookies in class. Students took turns adding ingredients using measuring spoons and measuring cups as they read the recipe instructions. Eating them later was a real treat!
“Our goal is to make learning fun,” said Kari Polk. “Hopefully students will develop a love for learning, which will continue throughout their lives.”
