Its Been a Great Week!

This week has been great! We worked hard in writing planning our fairy tale adaptions. I can't wait to share them with you! In reading we are starting our changes unit. We worked this week on our ideas about change and knowing the difference between a myth and a legend. In math the second graders are continuing their unit on measurement.

Things to Look Forward to Next Week!

Next week we will continue developing our fairy tale adaptions. We will work on analyzing song lyrics and stories for "change." In social studies we will begin planning our opinion presentations. In math the second graders will work on finishing their measurement unit.
