We are Learning...
We will continue our study of traditional literature. We will be studying different versions of fairy tales, fables, and folktales. We will be comparing and contrasting different versions and we will also discuss the theme of each version.
We will begin our study of geometry. We will be studying a shapes flat surfaces, vertices, and edges, relating plane shapes to solid figures, and making new shapes from existing shapes.
We are working SO hard on wrapping up our young author books and working on our final drafts! The class has done such an amazing job on these. I am so excited for the students to share them at our upcoming Pancake Breakfast!
2nd Graders at Thorpe Creek Elementary will be issued a challenge to reduce, recycle and reuse. Students will be asked to think like a scientist in order to design a tool that meets a specific need. The materials for the tool MUST be reusable. We will focus on this for the remainder of the year!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 15 new vocabulary words. Those words are: reduce, reuse, recycle, engineer, design, environment, pollution, hazardous waste, compost, landfill, biodegradable, energy, disposable, and conservation.
