This Week in 2D

Place Value, Algebra, Writing, Sound

Our Learning Journey

We are looking forward to a fabulous week in second grade! In math we are assessing our knowledge of place value and money. Please continue to find opportunities for your student to make change for you. The Who Am I project will dominate our Language Arts time. We will begin to write our rough drafts for our papers in class as you begin to work on the presentation boards at home. For more detailed information, please see the paragraph below. In grammar we are using the many skills we learned throughout the year to write a solid rough draft. Second graders will use the knowledge they learned about sound and vibrations to conduct an experiment. Students will also go on a "sound" hike around campus. Please mark your calendars for field day on Friday. We hope to see you then!

Who Am I Project?

Your child has already brought home copies of the research that we have been working on for the past two weeks. You will also find a copy of the questions that they have answered on the pink, yellow, and blue slips of paper. These questions were used as a guideline to help shape our project. The children have done research in the computer lab and media center as well. Please use the information and any other information that you like to to help create the presentation board for their Who Am I project. We will be working on the rough drafts for the next two weeks in class. The children's homework will be to work on this presentation and to reread sections of their biography to help them complete this project. This assignment should be treated as nightly homework. Remember that the presentation boards are due Friday, May 17th.
