A princess pig and Google Expeditions! #resvt

Today we had a wonderful visit from Mercy Watson the Princess in disguise! As part of our PBiS celebration, each grade level got to choose a book character for Mr. Berry to dress up as. Second grade chose a favorite, Mercy Watson the princess in disguise! Mr. Berry came in and read the whole book to us! We loved it and appreciate Mr. Berry getting fancy for us! And of course we couldn't resist the opportunity to look like Mercy Watson as well!

We also had a wonderful opportunity thanks to Darcie Rankin and Tonya Darby to use Google Expeditions! Scholars were able to use the Google cardboard goggles to have a 3-D view of a Chinese National Park! We also got to climb up Mt. Everest, and swim with Great White Sharks! This was an AMAZING experience that would not have been possible without Darcie and Tonya. Students absolutely loved it; I wish there was a way I could capture all of their wonder, excitement, and engagement.  This was a highlight of the year! Below is a short video of what it looked like.
