Pilgrim Grade 2 ELA and MATH
2nd week in March...
From Mr. Yearick:
This week we discussed adjectives, and we talked about different ways we use them. We also looked at R-controlledvowels, and decided a country song was best for those kind of vowels. Click on the link below to hear our song about cowgirls and cowboys.
Next week we'll continue using adjectives and discuss the idea of setting in stories. We'll also investigate the tendency for some "ea" vowel combinations to sound like a short E.
From Miss H and Mr. Bollig:
1) Partial Sums Addition Algorithm
2) Renaming two digit numbers (for subtraction)
As children proceeded through the daily MATH PATH, they visited and reviewed many of the Unit 7 skills: graphs and interpreting data, addition and subtraction facts, and even sorting data to determine the "median." (middle number) There were also explorations in patterns, weight, and sharing money, and then there was IXL.
This week we will continue with a Unit 7 quiz and a new unit on fractions!
Partial Sums Addition
We're practicing this paper and pencil strategy every day so that we use it easily.
If you had $5 to share with 4 people, how much would each person get?
Fractions Unit coming!
In unit 8, we will explore all the fraction numbers and ways to equally share.
