As second graders learn about citizenship and working with others in their school community, we have been very engaged in learning in every curriculum area. As writers, we took a walk around the school to gain inspiration for future narrative story topics. We stopped in the courtyard to reflect stories we find in the objects and sounds that surround us. Students made a list in their writing notebooks of story ideas to take back to class for later development into small moment narrative stories. In reading, we selected “just right” books to place in our book boxes for reading from during our reader’s workshop. We love to read good book!
In math, we worked on math models and strategies to solve word problems. We, also, learned to play a few math fluency games with our friends and teachers. Second Grade is a HOOT!
