2nd Grade Scoop
Students were able to master their learning targets this week. They added three digit numbers with one, two, and three digits. They even learned algorithm and regrouping. This is a hard concept, but they achieve it without a problem. Please ask your child to teach you a strategy he or she learned in class. The examples below can show you how your child added his or her numbers.
We are wrapping up our Science unit on food chains. We have had a blast learning about producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores and decomposers. Ask your child what he/she knows about those vocabulary words! Also, ask your child why food chains are important, and how do they help our environment?
This week in Reader's Workshop we began our two week long unit on poetry. We learned about some of the tools that poetry uses, like alliteration, imagery, repetition, and rhyme. These tools help us to understand and find patterns in poems. We listened to and read through various poems to find these tools of poetry.
