Miss Zygiel's Class

This Week in Second Grade...

May 16th-20th


Math:

This week we looked at place value up to 1,000 and finding a rule and completing the number patterns. This week we will be moving on to fractions.


Science:

This past week we talked about Natural Resources. The students were split into groups of two and they had to find a way to show their knowledge and promote natural resources. There were posters, videos, and commercials!


Social Studies:

Next week we will be taking another look at continents. Our class will be participating in a Solutionist Project that will promote global learning. Students will be learning more about the seven continents and how we are all connected. Listed below are the highlights of this unit.


● The class will be divided into groups and assigned a continent focusing on learning about their continent’s schools, climate, wildlife, tourist attractions, transportation and homes.


● The class will also be using students of the World, websites, and other resources in our community to connect with people from all around the world.


● Groups will be using this information to create projects that will help convince people to move to their continent. At the end of the unit, each group will have a “Moment To Promote It” in a group presentation.


● All the presentations will be posted on our class website.

Wildlife Sanctuary Class Trip Video

On Monday, we had out field trip to the Wildlife Sanctuary. It was such a beautiful day and the kids had a blast! We started the day by walking around to look at all the exhibits. We then had lunch and finished our day with a program about the butterfly life cycle. It was such a fun day. You could tell everyone had a good time because when we got back we were all so tired (including me)! This awesome video was made by Stacy Labine-Mann (Shonn's Mom). :) I hope you enjoy!
