Our Second Grade Classroom
A few things that we've been up to...
Matt Tavares gave a wonderful presentation at school on Thursday.
*Used bar models to solve addition and subtraction word problems
* Bar modeling to compare sets
*Apply the inverse operation of subtraction and addition
*Spelling Unit 9 - focused on vowel-consonant-e words and /f/ spelled as ph
Also reviewed and practiced:
*Open and closed syllables
*spelling multisyllabic words
*long e sound at the end of a multisyllabic word is usually spelled with a y
*continued practice with previous rules such as long spelling right after short vowel
*Gentle Cindy to practice with the soft c and soft g sound when followed by an e, i, or y
*Children worked in their Language Arts Menu - which includes options such as author's choice, spelling practice, reading, Lexia Core 5, RazKids
*Book Clubs - guided reading groups
*FA Helper Interview and Report - children continue the process working towards editing and completing their final draft.
*Author Reflection: Children wrote in their Writer's Notebook about Matt Tavares's presentation and what they learned and enjoyed.
