Peek At The Week

We had another great week in second grade together! I'm so glad it wasn't as cold so we could go outside for recess! It's funny when 40 degrees feels so warm!

Here are some of the things we did this week!

In Math:
  • used place value to add one digit and two digit numbers with regrouping
  • showed the tens and ones using cubes and paper and pencil
  • played review games to make tens and help with regrouping
  • learned when we need to regroup
In Fundations:
  • wrapped up Unit 7 
  • began unit 8 on r-controlled words using ar and or
  • practiced trick words with a fun relay
In Social Studies:
  • reviewed continents and oceans songs
  • learned about cardinal directions and made a compass
  • practiced cardinal directions and landed on a map grid to borrow a beanie baby
  • discussed landforms and bodies of water 
  • made a vocabulary booklet
  • watched short movies on landforms
*Check the backpack folder for a special study guide for a maps and globes and landforms test on Thursday February 6, 2014. Please help your child prepare for the test.

Have a wonderful weekend!
