Classroom & Grade Level

What We Are Learning

October- Second graders have settled in nicely to the routines of their new classrooms. We are finishing up our first Social Studies unit that focuses on government systems.  Children are working in a fairy community where they meet fairies needs and wants as well as create a government system for their fairy community. We just completed our second math unit which focused on even and odd numbers and making arrays. Second graders are beginning the final draft phase of their personal narratives. Next they will begin to write expository text.

September- Second graders are having a great start to the new school year! They have been working on forming a safe and productive classroom community involving getting to know you activities, creating classroom essential agreements, and learning routines and procedures. Second graders dived right into independently reading as well as writing small moment stories. In math, they are working on addition strategies. Children have been playing math games to improve their fact knowledge. We are looking forward to a great year!
