 Student Readers’ Theatre

This week, the students have practiced the reader’s theater play “Grace for President”.  They will continue to practice the plays next week and then I will record each team to post as an  audio podcast on our classroom website.  Be on the lookout for a post with their audio clips!

Writer’s Workshop

The work is coming slowly, but we are continuing to work on our All-About books in class. We have worked on such different pages as a Diagram page, a How-To page and a What is… Page.

 Math

We have started working on our measuring unit in math. The students started with non-standard units of measuring, like using paper clips. They will move to using inches, feet and yards, as well as centimeters and meters.

 Spelling Next Week

Next week’s list is on the back. We do have two tricky words: write (to write a story) and right (to have the right answer). Please help your students with these words this week so they know the difference 🙂

CogAt Testing This Week

The kids worked hard taking the Cognitive Abilities tests this week. These are thinking skills tests that all the second graders in our corporation take each year. There were some challenging questions that made the kids think in new ways 🙂

Box Tops Due Wednesday

Help our classroom maybe win a class party! Bring those Box Tops in by Wednesday!
