What We Learned This Week

Reading – We finished up our Houghton Mifflin reading program this week with 2 pieces of text. The first Join the Circus is about 4 girls from China who perform with diabolos for Cirque de Soliel. The second, Raymond's Best Summer tells about a little boy who is concerned about passing his swimming test. I am so proud of the work that the kiddos have been doing this year. They are experts at identifying the important parts of the story and at answering questions using the text.

Writing – We are still working on our How-To Writing. On Monday we drew monsters and wrote out directions for a partner who then had to draw the monster. It was interesting to see who's directions were clear and easy to follow. We then started a piece called "How to Be the Best 2nd Grader Ever!"

MathWe finished shapes and fractions and took our last unit test on Wednesday. Overall the kiddos did an AMAZING job on the test (they are in Friday Folders today). Now we are reviewing what we have learned in 2nd Grade to get ready for our End of the Year test next week.
