Science: We learned about how scientists make close observations and create detailed sketches to teach others about what they see. We have also been learning about how scientists take information from their findings to draw conclusions. We connected that to learning about dinosaurs from fossils.

Weeks 1 & 2
Writing: Me Behind the Mask was a fun get to know you activity!
You're Finally Here! was a book we enjoyed together as a class. Afterwards we created a writing piece to share about a few of our goals for second grade.
We also began generating some strong personal narrative topic ideas.
Reading: We have learned all about how to select a "Just Right" book. Our trick is to remember the Goldie Locks Rule: Try to find a book that is not too hard, not too easy, but just right.
Jam Board: Both of our classes worked together to brainstorm ideas for a class mission statement using Jam Board.
Math: We have learned about several programs that we will be using this year including: DreamBox, Freckle, xtramath, and Code.org. Our most recent math lessons in chapter one have focused on reviewing addition strategies and key vocabulary.
