7th Grade Math
2nd Grade Readers
Second graders are exploring using Thinkmarks using Post-it notes. They help make students' reading comprehension and thinking more visible. Thinkmarks require students be actively engaged with the text and make them more accountable during reading. Teachers select one strategy at a time and model with a class read-aloud. Children then practice applying the strategy in guided reading groups or strategy groups. Thinkmarks are great springboards for book discussions.

They are using tools to measure weather conditions, follow weather patterns, along with making predictions about the forecast. Participating in hands-on experiments allows our 2nd graders to gain a better understand of weather. Our focus topics include Weather Patterns and Seasonal Changes, The Water Cycle, Cloud Formation, and Tools Meteorologist. Based on the 2nd graders prediction… they say “Bundle Up!”
