Arthur: A Second Grade TakeAway
Number one on my takeaway list is Arthur! I LOVED this idea, and it is definitely something I will use in my future classroom! The students' rotate taking Arthur home every night. They get to take Arthur everywhere! Arthur eats supper with them, goes to practices or games, and he even tucks them in. Then the students' write a letter to the class about something they did with Arthur that night. Some even include pictures of their happenings with Arthur. Just this year in Mrs. Stephens' second grade class, Arthur has went to a Braves game, rode on a motorcycle, went to little league games and practices, ate at tones of local restaurants, read several bedtime stories, and the list goes on!
