OCTOBER news for Gr 2
ELA (Mr. Yearick) and MATH (Miss H) OCT 31, 2015
This week in Gr 2 ELA...
This week in Reading we used IXL on our iPads for the first time. We focused on identifying sentence types. We also did some small group work on phonics, partner reading, reviewed some strategies for tricky words in our texts, furthered our knowledge of details in text, and discussed the author's purpose in non-fiction texts. We wrote poems specific to a setting, and tried to make persuasive packaging for our own brand of dog treats.
Math Game Day
Swamp Monster Math
Yes, after playing swamp monster tag in P.E. this week, we also enjoyed a version of Swamp Monster Math on game day. It's played using 2 dice and the numbers 1-12 on a piece of paper.
Hungry Fish Subtraction
As we practice subtraction skill building, we also use this app on the iPad to improve our processing speed. Do you have it at home? (created by Motion Math)
Name That Number
Using an Everyday Math Deck (cards 0-20) this game uses all of your computation skills. This week you'll be able to challenge your family members to play a game or two! An easy reference for game rules is found when you google it.
