Class of 2026 makes Oliver K. Woodpeople

Each year, the second grade class creates three unique wooden people after reading the book Oliver K. Woodman, the story about a wooden person who travels across the country. Each student is responsible for making two or three wooden parts used to create these wooden people. This team project reinforces the theme that each second grade student is an individual, but when added together all 26 students plus two teachers makes the whole second grade. These Woodpeople will remain in the second grade classroom for the year, then they will join many others from past years in Coolidge Hall.​
