For and end of the year project the 2nd graders had to do a research project on an animal and then do a 3D project of it. Jolene chose to do her research on a Squirrel Monkey. They did all the research and rough drafts at school, then they got to type their report on the laptops in class. The 3D project was to be done at home for literacy night when the parents got to come to school and see what the kids have been doing this quarter. Sundays after church the girls love to do crafts so we found instructions http://www.craftbits.com/project/sock-monkey on how to do a sock monkey and got busy. Jolene had to do all the work herself since it was a class project. Both of the the girls did a really good job. We kind of messed up on the arms, they turned out to be little nubs, but still cute. They both were so proud when they finished and realized what they could do by hand sewing. Jolene was pretty excited to take her monkey to school and show all of her friends what she had done.
