Second Grade Update

The Week We Had

We completed a lot of things in second grade for the final time this week.  On Monday and Tuesday, second graders completed their final narrative PBA!  They worked very hard through the writing process and produced a short story about a pioneer child based on some of the events and problems they had read about.  On Wednesday and Thursday, second graders completed an end of unit assessment for the final time.  We’ll have results ready to be out on all of this soon.

In math, we began a new unit where second graders are reviewing problem solving strategies.  They worked on practice problems throughout the first few days, while reviewing work with time and money.  We also have completed some activities themed after pioneers.  Our three rooms are currently on different schedules with the activities, but students are creating and playing pioneer games, and even completing STEM activities around pioneer challenges!

 

The Week to Come

 Our Walk-A-Thon is Friday (tomorrow)!  Technically, part of this week and a big thing, but I’ve been posting these on Thursday nights for sometime.  Please remember to return collection envelopes tomorrow (Friday, April 28) to be eligible for prizes.  T-shirts will be waiting for everyone as they arrive.  Thank you for your time and effort in collecting and contributing to our school and PTO!

Next week, we’ll transition to a new unit in reading and writing.  We’ll have a new anchor texts and work through some normal lessons, but we’ll also be reviewing a lot of the themes and skills we’ve worked on all year.  We’ll continue on with our final math unit, and be sure that all are caught up with pioneer activities.  It’s hard to believe, but we’re down to just 4 weeks!
