Second Grade Update

Week That Was

How about our second graders and the February Frolic?  Thank you so much for making our program a part of your week.  It was a lot of fun for us to see how excited and proud the second graders were throughout their dress rehearsals and final performance.
The program was a lot of fun, but it was nice for us to resume our normal schedule and routine on Wednesday.  We resumed our morning routine with a new text, Danger! Earthquakes, that we’ve worked on throughout the rest of the week.  The text has allowed us to resume our focus on weather and natural disasters, and then using a text to find facts and supporting details.  Everyone has been working on doing their own research too!
Our math unit is winding down.  It has been a long one focused on place value and problem solving strategies.  We’ll close our week and the unit at the same time, so we’ll be on to a new one beginning next week.



The Week to Come

We’ll be in transition next week with our curriculum.  Second graders are building towards being able to finish up our reading/writing unit by doing their own research on a natural event.  They’re going to present their research in the form of a news article.  We’ll also try to take our end of unit assessment in parts on Chromebooks.

Our next math unit is short, but entirely focused on measurement.  Students will be participating in a number of activities to build understanding and familiarity with different units of measurement.  In the early activities for next week, we try to acknowledge the importance of using standard forms of measurement.

Our third quarter comes to a close next week!  It’s crazy to think that we’re about to get into our final quarter.  Please look over conference signups and plan accordingly for our upcoming nights on March 13 and 15.
