Mrs. Baker's Class


What is going on at school?

Math: The students will be learning fractions this week. In second grade we are responsible for laying the foundations of fractions and the common language; such as, equal parts, halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, etc. Students will be using models and hands on tools to work with fractions throughout the week.

Science: The spotlight in science will be natural versus man-made resources. Students will distinguish between natural and man-made resources and provide examples. Mid-week students will investigate materials around the room and compare them.

Reading and Writing: The big idea in reading and writing this week will be a continuation of the culture research project. Students will be completing a "culture gram" on the following cultures: Irish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korea. After reading and investigating 8 different cultures. The kids will write an ALL About book about their favorite culture.
