Second Grade Swag!
September 28th - October 2nd
The students used their bodies to make number lines in class this week. We started by making a number line using numbers 1-10.
Students can choose from 6 different E-Time options, and this week Kate chose Pet Palooza and researched classroom pets we could purchase.
Friday we started our math menus. This will give students a way to choose the products they create and the process in which they create them to show they understand the math concepts we have learned in class.
What We Are Learning This Week
Language Arts: We will be learning about consonant digraphs, fact/detail and imperative and exclamatory sentences. We will also be writing a play scene!
Social Studies: Students will continue to explore the question, how are communities different? We will explore different kinds of communities, learn about the features, advantages, and disadvantages of urban, rural, and suburban communities, learn how Levittowns were built and create a collage of images from different communities. We will wrap up our question by making bar graph showing each student's preference for each of the three types of communities.
Science: This week we will wrap up our plant unit as we prepare to begin learning about insects next week. We will continue observing our brassica plants and discussing the plant life cycle and parts of a plant.
Math: This week we will learn how to determine if a number is odd or even, use place value to determine 10 or 100 more or less, and begin learning addition fact strategies.

Kindergarten Color Days!
Kindergarten will be learning how to read and write the color words, as well as recognize the different colors and use them for patterning activities. We think this will be a fun opportunity for our students to see the color they are learning about all over the school. On the designated day, please have your child wear the following colors, if they want! Thanks!
October 1 - Green
