We are Learning...
We will wrap up poetry!
We will wrap up our exploration of the metric and customary systems of measurement!
We will continue writing different types of poetry and publishing in our Poetry Books!
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 wrap this up next week. The eggs arrived this week and then are in the incubator. We will begin candling them next week to observe and learn about the lifecycle of a chicken.
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.
