Peek At The Week

Happy October!  We had another great week of learning together.

In Math, we played More Than 2 to Make 10 with a partner. It was hard, but fun. We also practiced our math facts and learned about different addition and subtraction strategies to use when solving story problems. Also, we had another Pocket Day. It is always exciting to count all of our pockets! *Don't forget to have your child practice their math facts on Xtra Math.

In Science, we had a special visit from Mr. Muscleman from the Science Center. He taught our class about pumpkins, fire, and did a really cool experiment.

      We also wrapped up our unit on amphibians by watching a movie and taking our test. All of the students did a wonderful job! Thank you for helping them study!

In Social Studies, we talked and read about “Classroom Manners” and how important they are at home and at school. The students are working hard earning class compliments as well. We have almost reached our goal of 25 baseballs. I am proud of their effort.

In Literacy, we began switching classrooms for Fundations and Reading. The students have been learning new routines and getting to know each other and their new teachers.  It has been nice getting to know more second graders. We have been practicing our centers and learning about “Lucky Books.”  My homeroom class also learned about different types of sentences and how to stretch a sentence to make it super.

 I hope you all have a super long weekend. Remember there is no school on Monday 10/8 for Columbus Day.
