On Friday afternoon at Hopewell, a transformation happened in the second grade classrooms.  Books were set out, surgical masks, gloves, and shoe covers were ready to be worn, and “Operating Room” signs were hung outside each door.   It was time for the second graders to become “doctors” and to step into “surgery!”

The last week has been filled with information on non-fiction text features, and their teachers wanted to put that knowledge to the test.  To do so, they had their young doctors perform “surgery” on different non-fiction pieces of writing.  Each surgical team had to cut out the varying text features from the articles and glue them in their correct spot, where they would then explain why each feature was correct.  Fun was had by both the “surgeons” and “head nurses” (teachers) alike!
