SECOND graders have GROWTH mindset!
 SEPTEMBER 25,2017

In Math second graders at May Watts are working measuring, comparing measurements and the metric system.
In this 12-day Grade 2 module, students engage in activities designed to deepen their conceptual understanding of measurement and to relate addition and subtraction to length.  Their work in Module 2 is exclusively with metric units in order to support place value concepts.  Customary units are introduced in Module 7.

  In Social Studies  second graders at May Watts are learning about growth versus fixed mindsets.  The video below explains.  Next we will be studying different types of communities, their similarities and differences and how they are interdependent on one another.
