Weekly Goal Celebration

This quarter we decided to have the whole second grade to celebrate with each other when they meet their weekly goals. Each students sets a goal for the week and if they reach their goal, they gather in the hallway congratulate each other and do a little chant. This was the first week we have done this celebration and the turn out was great. The students worked really hard towards their goals this week and came back in the room with a big smile upon their faces!

What are we learning this week?

Phonics: Vowel - r: -ur

Math: We will finish up Topic 9 on subtracting with double digit numbers and take our test on Thursday. Friday we will begin Topic 10 where we will learn more about place value up to 1,000.

Writing: Last week, we began our final draft of our explanatory text and will continue to work on those final drafts. This week we will be taking about using adjectives to describe nouns. We will use these adjectives to create an opinion piece based on the fruits and vegetables we are taste testing this week. We will work on creating super second grade sentences for our writing and making sure we use a lot of details to help support our opinions.

Reading: We will use our question asking abilities to ask and answer questions about nutritional text we will read and listen to. We will also discuss how food companies make their foods look so good on television or in advertisements. We will use this type of information later to help us create our own food advertisement.

Vocabulary: ingredient and riddle
