Literacy: In Reading Workshop, readers did some echo, seesaw, or choral partner reading which enabled them to finish Polar Bears Past Bedtime. The kids then created character trait posters of Jack or Annie. Finally, they were able to design their own time machine and create a Magic Tree House location and adventure. Writers started publishing their expert books using the Book Creator app. They also made an “A Million Valentines” by Robert Heidbreder Seesaw post.
Handwriting: Writers practiced writing the letter “q” and their full names.
Math: Mathematicians worked on using the partial sums method to add two, three, and four digit numbers. They also did a variety of math related Valentine’s Day activities.
Theme: This week the children learned about animal adaptations and some specific Arctic animal facts.
Miscellaneous: I'm proud to report that YES set a new record with our sock drive and shattered our 2019 total by over 100. We collected 831 pairs of socks this year. Yahoo! We want to extend a warm thank you to all from the second grade team.
