The Big Bang

By: Brayden and Julian Grace Amlike started making earrings. She made them by taking a string and putting a knot in it. Then she put a Lego in it. Then she gave them out to people. The first person she gave it to was Connor Forman. Then it started being the opposite of the cheese touch. Grace said she felt happy when she gave them out and Connor said that they were very cool.

By P.J. We read a book named Born With a Bang. It talks about how life was born. How the universe was created. We also had a presentation on the creation of the universe. It was a lot of fun to learn about the universe

Who Won? Who Won? By Emmet On Sunday, I had a basketball game. The kids on the team were Summer, Sean, Brady, Joe, David, Lauren, Camden, Kyle, my brother, Luke and me. The game was in the gymnasium.

It was a scrimmage game. There were two games going on at the same time. Our team’s name is the Maroon Gophers. We played against the green team. My team lost three to four, but Luke’s team won, three to zero. Since Luke’s team won, I bet it wasn’t a bad game after all.

they die. That is very bad. We want to keep them safe because they help people. Dolphins are my favorite animal be-

By: Mrs. Protas

We went on a field trip to the Harvard Museum. There was this stuffed tiger. It was huge. It was about six feet long. There was this bison that looked like Appa from Avitar the Last Air Bender. I saw a lot of rocks. My favorite rock was this big piece of amethyst.

Sarah is a student at Holliston High School. She is an intern in room 120 at Placentino School for her work study. She remembers her second grade year (2001 – 2002) in room 120 when she was in Mrs. Condon’s class. She has fond memories of her second grade year and those memories came flooding back when she crossed the threshold of our classroom. Sarah remembers learning how to read, add, subtract and tell time. She remembers fun field trips too. Sarah said, “This is a wonderful classroom. It is wonderful to be back here.”
