  • Watch Our Characters Change - Ms. King's Second Grade Class

    Growing and changing... our characters don't stay the same!

    In this second grade class, the students learned that characters in great books change. People learn from events in their lives, and ideas, feelings, and behaviors slowly change. The students in 2-126 read books and analyzed their characters in the beginning and at the end. They looked at the changes their characters went through and asked themselves, "What happened in the book that helped my character grow as a person?" The results are these wonderful writing pieces all about the book characters. This delightfully evolved board can be found outside room 126.
