Second Grade Happenings

  • April in 2nd Grade This month we have been working on so many fun things in 2nd grade.

In reading, students chose a Magic Tree House book they wanted to hear.  Together, we are completing graphic organizers to compare how different characters react to different events.  After, we will  compare the three books being read to see the similarities of the characters across books.  Students have also chosen their own series books to read.  This is helping them build their stamina with chapter books.  In writing we finished up our non-fiction/informational writing and had a ...

  • Another Fun Week Week two was a lot of fun.  We continued to get to know each other through games, conversations, writing, and sharing.   Each child is working on being a "Bucket Filler".  Ask your child what this means and how they might "fill someone's bucket" at home. We also learned about growth mindset and how we can encourage each other when we notice someone is having negative feelings.  The whole second grade worked together to develop Essential Agreements that are consistent for each classroom.  All students continued to work on developing and practicing routines and procedures for a successful year.
