We are staying busy in 2nd grade! This week we dove further into place value by completing a few lessons in our math book (Chapter 5 if you would like to check it out on the My Math login), and ended the week creating animals made out of base ten blocks! Students had to figure out what number their animal made when they put the base ten blocks together. They had a fun time and the animals turned out really cute!
We also started our matter unit and learned all about solids and liquids. Students then sorted through magazines and ads to find different solids and liquids. We will study gas next week as well as present our "matter museum" so don't forget to bring back the baggies on Monday.
Today we met our 4th grade buddies and read some books with them. We will hopefully see them next month to complete a fun activity together.
On Monday, we will start our spelling and homework. Please make sure this is turned in on Friday, Don't forget to complete the reading log in the agenda with a goal of reading at least 20 minutes a night.
Next week we have our very first science lab lesson! We are all very excited. We will continue to study matter, place value, and build our reading and writing stamina.
