Our Second Grade Classroom
Children practiced for their Winterfest Concert on Friday, December 21st. Rehearsals will continue this upcoming week.
* Spelling review and practice; buddy studying; waterfall spelling practice
*Daily Oral Language: children correct sentences with spelling and grammatical errors. This week we worked on punctuation to show possession, period, question mark, spelling, capital letters and correct verb usage.
*Children worked on the writing process for publishing nonfiction personal stories.
*Children worked on a paper that they started a couple of weeks ago which focused on the qualities of a hero. Children chose someone who inspires them and that they consider a personal hero while explaining why that person is a hero and how they possess the qualities of a good citizen. From there, children turned their thoughts into a paragraph using the paper as a guide.
*Language Arts Menu
