It's All Happening!
Ms. Dale's 2nd grade Classroom Update November 2015
Business Day was Amazing!
It's Party Time!
It's Party Time
During Reader's Workshop we are studying the genre of non-fiction. Ask your student to tell you about or point out a text feature. We will be sticking with the non-fiction genre for a while. In Writer's Workshop, we will begin our "how- to" pieces. The students generated a few topics that they can do on their own. Tomorrow, we will be choosing topics and by Friday, we will begin to create our supply lists. We will also start to sketch out the first few steps.
In Social Studies, we are looking at the 3 branches of government and the Constitution. The students showed a great interest in England and why they have a Queen. "How does that work?' and "Does she boss everyone around?" were some of the questions asked during our discussion. If anyone has any connections to people in the U.K., we would love to ask them questions!!
Our next project will be surrounding biographies. We haven't discussed specific people yet, but this project will integrate social studies, reading, and writing. I am looking forward to some lively discussions about who is biography worthy and why!
Our Biography Showcase will be Tuesday, November 24th from 9:30-10:15. All families are invited to our classroom to learn about some interesting people. Mark it on the calendar!!!!
Thank you for reading through the end!
If you write me a note inside your student's planner that you read this update, I will give your student a BEAR PAW for effort, a Lucky Scale for a privilege, and he/she will hear his/her name on the Friday announcements!
Have a great week!
