Writing: This week we continued to work on our nonfiction pieces. We researched, and wrote an informational piece that included at least one fact that we learned while researching our topics. We also completed a quick write entitled Worth More Than Gold. The students thought about character traits that describe themselves, and then they wrote about why they are worth more than gold. Those writings are currently displayed in our hallway, and they turned out so cute!




Math: We tested chapter 6 on Friday, and this week we will begin learning about data and graphing in chapter 9.

Social Studies: We studied different types of maps. We have learned about physical and political maps, cardinal directions on a compass rose, and we talked about continents and oceans. We also reviewed different landforms and bodies of water.




Reading:  We have continued to talk about the importance of holding onto stories while reading longer books. Most recently we practiced Stop, Think, and Answer Questions. Please continue to encourage your child read at home. Thank you!

Happy 100th Day of Second Grade! We had a lot of fun celebrating our 100th day of learning in second grade! We made crowns with 100 drawings on them. Each hat had 10 sets of 10 drawings, and they turned out so cool!






Writing: This week we added a strong conclusion and an all about the author page to our nonfiction writing. Then we went through the editing and revising process.



Social Studies: We learned more about communities this week. We compared different types of communities: urban, suburban and rural.

 We have continued to look out for special language while we read. We have also been working on summarizing to help us hold onto stories when books get longer.
