Students in Janice Perkins' second grade class at Abita Springs Elementary School enjoyed viewing artifacts from the African exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art as a culminating activity to wrap up their last reading story of the year, "Babu's Song." The artifacts were brought to the class by Tracy Kennan, the mother of one of Mrs. Perkins' students. Mrs. Kennan, who works at the museum, let the students try on tribal masks from the collection. Shown are, front row, left to right, Mia Westereng, Lilly Harrison, Cohen LaBauve, and Chloe' Cagnolatti. On the back row, left to right, are Rimes Donado, Ronde' White, Jonathan Berry, and Reagen Robin.
Students in Mrs. Janice Perkins' second grade class at Abita Springs Elementary School performed "Contraction Surgery" in order to remember what parts of words to remove when forming a contraction. Donning surgeons' masks, caps, and gloves, they removed the excess word parts before "stitching" the words back together with paper clips and bandages, leaving a scar (the apostrophe). "Doctors" Daniel Medina and Savannah Kast are shown performing surgery on their set of words.
Second graders in Mrs. Janice Perkins' class at Abita Springs Elementary used newspaper articles to spot contractions being used in print. Using colored transparent disks, they covered all of the contractions they could find before categorizing them and using them in their own sentences. Shown searching for contractions are Brooke Serigne, Jonathan Berry, Patrick Johnson, and Chloe' Cagnolatti.
