Our Second Grade Classroom
It was a pleasure to meet with each of you for Parent-Teacher Conferences. Last week, children spent time decorating Valentine's boxes and delivering Valentine's to each other. Thank you to our wonderful room parents and parent volunteers for making our Valentine's celebration a wonderful experience. Enjoy the photos below.
*Children transferred interview questions into complete sentences in statement form. For example, they took a question and answer such as What are the tools you use (for your job)? Answer: hammer, truck, and nails and converted it into: The tools Mr. Jansen uses for his job are a hammer, nails, and a truck. This paper has served as a graphic organizer as children write their report.
*Students also worked on first and second drafts this week. We will continue working on this next week as well.
*Children worked on planning out the project portion of their Hero Study. They sketched out what their project would look like, and we will begin with dedicating time on creating these next week.
*In math, children worked on an assessment for both our chapter on measurement and a benchmark assessment.
Homework - NEXT WEEK...
* There will be no spelling homework for next week. Instead, I will be sending home an optional math packet with practice for solving word problems and some of the other math skills we have been working on in class. Feel free to keep it at home or send it back to school. I will also send home a small packet of some comprehension pages from children's reading journals. Again, please use these as you see fit. Children could write about a book they've read at home.
