Second Grade Happenings

  • 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.

  • A Successful First Week Despite the raging temperatures, we had a great first week in second grade. We have been working on building our community of learners.  Students have learned procedures and routines to be successful in our classroom and around our building. We've explored fun math, reading, and writing activities to get us excited about what lies ahead in our learning.  With the new implementation of Responsive Classroom, we are looking to provide a more consistent, positive, and developmentally appropriate experience for each child.  This is going to be a great year!

  • May Math After finishing up our unit on place value right before vacation, we have moved onto using addition strategies to add three digit numbers.  We are going back to many of the strategies that we used when adding within 100 to now add within 1000. These strategies include, using an open number line, partial sums, regrouping, and breaking apart numbers to add.  We try hard every day to be flexible math thinkers!
