Mini Worlds for Grade 2 Science

My daughter, who is in grade 2, has to learn earth, air and soil this year as part of her science. Since the fall I have had her become more aware of clouds, wind, rain and the snow by taking photo’s and asking her lots of questions.

I also had her build a terrarium and monitor it.

First we took a very quick (3 hours) shopping trip to the garden center with a budget of $20.00 (we end up spending about $50.00) with the plan of getting just a few plants (we got 13 including a venus fly trap).

Who does the report cards belong to when you are the teacher?

The natural ownership of the report cards have always been the kids. The work is theirs that they either do or do not, and do well or do poorly. But since now I am their primary teacher does that change this?

Last week I handed another thick folder of work for each of my children just in time for the teacher to do the report cards. Which she did this past week. But I wonder now, if my children get a low grade would that be because I didn’t do a good job teaching them?
