We are Learning...
This week we have been learning about the difference between inferencing and predicting. We will continue focusing on this, but we will also begin talking about fact and opinion!
We will continue learning about measurement, and perimeter and we will begin to learn about area as well!
This week, we began learning about using a main idea sentence when writing. Next week we will continue working on main idea and working on awesome supporting details to support our main ideas!
2nd Graders at Thorpe Creek Elementary will be issued a challenge to reduce, recycle and reuse. Students will be asked to think like a scientist in order to design a tool that meets a specific need. The materials for the tool MUST be reusable. We will focus on this for the remainder of the year!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 15 new vocabulary words. Those words are: reduce, reuse, recycle, engineer, design, environment, pollution, hazardous waste, compost, landfill, biodegradable, energy, disposable, and conservation.
