Highlights from Second Grade
Playing the part of the RED crayon was Ms. Costigan, aka 'The Queen'.
Mrs. Raci had to improvise since WHITE is not part of her color pallet.
Mrs. Weber went all out for the role of the ORANGE crayon.
This past week we have taken our catapult experiment further and have used the site StoryboardThat.com to sequence our work. We used the actual pictures from conducting the experiment, put them in order, and used a text box to explain what we were doing each step of the way. Below are a few examples of their completed work.
In math this week we continued skip counting by 5's and 10's, starting at 0 and at a random number. For example: count by 5's starting at 165, count by 10's starting at 780. Many of the students still need extra practice with this concept (including skip counting by 2's). Please try to have your child practice skip counting while riding in the car, bouncing or kicking a ball, or taking a shower.
Sections for place value practice are:
- Place Value - M.1, M.2, M.4, and M.5.
- Counting and Number Patterns - A.1, A.2, A.3, A.5, A.11, A.12, and A.13
- Comparing and Ordering Numbers - B.1, B.2, B.3, B.4, B.5, and B.6
New sections to practice are: M.9, M.10, and M.13 under Place Value
C.3 and C.4 under Names of Numbers
