Second Grade Update

It’s been a while since you have heard from second grade. Our blog was down.  Apologies.  That doesn’t mean great things haven’t been happening!

Here are some quick picture highlights from STEAM week:

Last week we celebrated Earth day by planting lettuce and kale in the garden.  We weeded, watered, and loved our new plants.  We have also been thinking about ways we can take care of this amazing earth we live on.  We’ll be going for a community clean-up walk some time this week.  We hope to pick up as much trash as possible to show how much we care for the earth.

We launched our final writing project.  It’s a biggie!  We are doing a big animal research project.  Students are learning how to read a piece of information, synthesize what they learned, take notes, and eventually put those notes into paragraph form.  We look forward to sharing this accomplishment with you at the author’s tea.

In math, we are learning about money.  Specifically, we are learning to count, exchange, sort, and make change with money.  Next time you go into a store to buy something, have your child count the change!

We look forward to seeing you all at Zimriya and Special Visitor’s Day!
