Second Grade had "Tie Day" on Friday. The kids all wore ties and had a speak-up about them. In the afternoon the whole grade level did stations. Mr. Klassen and Mr. Kollman taught students how to tie ties. Mrs. Welinski and Mrs. Sapp had them make ties out of paper and other materials. Mrs. Benda and Mrs. Backes read a story to the kids. Mr. Bucher and Mrs. Calvert talked about the history of ties (and talked about timelines). It was a fun day connecting to the recently read story "Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble."
