We then used a website on the chrome books to "Explore the world" and created passports where we collected fun facts. The kids voted on google docs and the majority decided to explore Great Britain next. We continued research and even created poetry from facts. These kids have amazed me!!
We have been continuing to read rich literature and compare and contrast informational books on the same topic and/or books that are similar. We are summarizing literature and finding the main topic and focus of paragraphs within informational texts and articles.
The students performed in our 2nd grade performance, Miss Frizzle's storms, in April. They did an amazing job performing while also teaching about the dangers of floods.
We have been on a couple more fun field trips. We spent an amazing day at Bushy Hill trying out team building on a ropes course, catching frogs, creating art with nature, and going on a hike through a swamp. We also visited SCSU to see the play Junie B. Jones. We then compared the theatrical production to the chapter books.
We had 2 science programs visit us to enhance our science curriculum studies, "Weather or not" and "Smarty Plants" . The kids enjoyed the hands on fun while learning all about weather and plants.
They are adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers with regrouping using multiple strategies , measuring using inches and centimeters, writing and answering multi step word problems and continuing to work with money and time.
