It was a very successful first week of second grade. Students are learning the routines and expectations for being a 2nd grader and this group of students are amazing!!
In all academic areas we have been working on reviewing and routines. In math students are skip counting by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. They are also worked on modeling 2-digit numbers with base ten blocks.
In Language Arts we focused on nouns. The students created a circle map listing any person, place or thing as a noun. This poster will be used as a tool in the room to refer to as the year goes on.
More highlights for the week were starting our work in projects. The “Driving Question” for the first project is…How can we as a Tribes Community present our knowledge of the Tribes Agreements with our community? Our focus this week was Attentive Listening, next week we will work on the rest of the agreements–Mutual Respect, Appreciations, No Put Downs, and Right to Pass.
Students also enjoyed going to specials–during the first quarter Mrs. Bloomfield’s class has Kibo, which is a coding and robotics course with Ms. Heidi and Miss Garcia’s class has Community Service with Mr. Lenon. All 2nd graders participated in P.E. with Mr. Nichols and Mrs. Owsley.
Some Important Reminders for the Upcoming Week…
- If you haven’t sent back the beginning of the school year paperwork please be sure to get that in.
- On P.E. days (Monday/Wednesday) please be sure that your child has a water bottle and wears sneakers.
- MAPs Testing for 2nd graders will be on Monday, September 17th. Be sure your child comes to school will rested and has eaten a healthy breakfast.
- Picture Day for students in Kindergarten through 4th grade will be on Tuesday, September 25th. More information will be forth coming.
We are looking forward to our 2nd week in 2nd grade!!
