We would like to thank you all for being so flexible with all the snowy weather. Our students are working hard to remember routines and to continue to Be George in the hallways and classrooms as well.
Second graders welcomed February with a wonderful interactive videoconference with Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum about animals in winter! We loved learning about adaptation with feathers, plastic eggs and feeling an actual blubber hand firsthand. We also practiced cooperation and teamwork during this videoconference.
In English Language Arts, we continue to read aloud great books in the Fairy Tale genre. We have responded to the stories we have read, and made connections as well.
In Math, we have begun measurement. We are using addition and subtraction strategies in measurement as we solve two-step word problems. We are continuing to practice fluency facts with our Math Sprints.
In Social Studies, we have begun our unit on Communities. Our classes have been studying Urban, Suburban, and Rural Communities. We will be creating a project on the Chrome Books using all the great research we have been learning about.
In Fundations we have moved onto r-controlled syllables. We are increasing our vocabulary with our trick words as well. We are practicing high frequency words. We are looking forward to beginning Unit 9.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Open House on March 14th. We have so many wonderful things to share with you! As always, thank you for your support.
