Great Week in 2nd grade

We are DONE testing!!!! YAY! The kids did AMAZING and I am so proud of the effort and work the put into these last 3 days! HARD WORK pays off!!

We are starting our next math topic of Money, adding different coins up to a dollar can be tricky so any help at home to review would be great! Using real change is always helpful. Just in the last few days I am starting to see growth so practice will make a big difference!

In reading we are still working on Fairytales but will be finishing up and starting our Mystery unit soon. The kids have done a great job comparing and contrasting the different versions of Fairytales. They are going to love our mystery unit and book clubs!

In writing we are finishing up our Lab reports and How to books. The kids are going to bring their how to books home. Please keep in mind that not all pieces that we do this year are taken to the publishing stage. Because of time and testing we were not able to publish our how -to books, however they are AMAZING just in the rough draft form!!

Our next unit in writing is Gripping Fiction stories. I think the kids will really enjoy this one and making up their own stories!!

In Social Studies we will soon start our unit on economics and how we make a budget and save money. Always fun to see their opinion on money and budgets :-)
