Math Gnomes made by Grade 2

Our Grade 2 class was fortunate to have an assistant teacher this past year.  When the end of year was approaching, we pondered on a gift to give her that would be reflective of her time with our class.  We also wanted each child to play a role in making the gift. 

Ms Stamps has spent a lot of time this school year working with math, so they thought she might could use her own set of number gnomes in her future teaching endeavors.  The children polished the wooden figures, sewed the hats, a bag and the math function emblems that decorate the back of the bag.  We even had some fun twiddling for the bag handle.

All 22 children had a hand in creating this lovely gift to show our appreciation for the year Ms. Stamps spent with our class.
