When was the last time you tried something new?

I decided to tap into an old passion of mine….painting! I heard about this type of fun painting class on facebook and decided to look around to see if we had one in the Rochester area. Turns out we do!
 It's called Painting with a Twist in Fairport.  It was so much fun!

In school, we have been learning about writing personal narratives about a time when you learned something new. We were discussing all the feelings that go along with doing something for the first time. I shared my personal narrative about my painting night. I said I was excited and nervous at the same time! We talked about how you can have 2 feelings like that and they just seem to wrap around each other! Feelings of being relaxed & proud made me want to do it again! They wanted me to bring in my painting to show them the next day! They all want to take a class! There are painting events for children and families!

 The Second Grade classes went on a field trip to the Rochester Public Market last week! The rain stopped just in time! Most of the tour is under cover inside the "sheds" anyway. We had our tour of the Market first. We learned about how the Public Market has been around for over 100 years. We saw things they still have around from years ago, like the horse weighing boards, and the changes that we see today. 

 Later we interviewed the vendors to learn what goods/produce they sell, how they grow them,  and how they transport it to the Market.
