Writing & Social Studies: Our writing celebration was a huge success! Our class was so excited to share our personal narratives with some of our friends from the other second grade classes. Each student read his or her story and then explained their model and map which represented the setting of their story. It was a lot of fun!
Math: Place value is the topic of our current chapter. The most recent topics we have learned about involve number patterns with numbers in the hundreds and comparing numbers. This chapter will come to an end in the later part of next week, so keep an eye out for a review sheet. :)
Reading: This week we focused on visualizing, and we also practiced some of our nonfiction reading strategies while we explored a Scholastic News Magazine. The magazine article was about the importance of being kind, and that fit in perfectly with our Unity Day celebration.
Unity Day Fun: Check out some of our fun activities that we did on Unity Day.
We built "Canstruction" creations out of the donated canned food items.
We heard the story Kindness is Cooler with Mrs. Ruler, and then we wrote notes of kindness for our friends and/or family members.
We also spent some time working on coloring kindness posters.
We enjoyed our opportunity to hear Peter and the Wolf at Powell Hall!
