Fancy Second-Graders

Students in Laura Murphy’s second-grade class at Washington Drive Primary School concluded their cursive writing unit with a “Fancy Nancy/ Posh Josh” celebration.

Second-graders arrived at school in their fancy attire and brought special objects to accessorize their desk, such as a table runner and a vase with flowers. In honor of the celebration, boys wore bow ties, fake mustaches and top hats, while girls donned glittery dresses, shirts and hair clips.

In conjunction with their cursive unit, Murphy read the book series “Fancy Nancy” by Jane O’Connor as the class read aloud. While reading the book series, second-graders learned new and sophisticated words, just as the book character Nancy learns fancy words, to incorporate into their daily vocabulary. To top off their fancy celebration, students enjoyed parfait ice cream sundaes.
