We are Learning...
This week we will be focusing on authors purpose! We'll be thinking about why an author decided to write the stories they did!
We wrapped up learning about area and perimeter. Next week we will focus more on fractions!
We will begin discussing poetry! Feel free to have your child bring in his or her favorite poem to share with the class!
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.
