This week in class

Monday
I Day
This week:

Reading - We are working on asking strong questions and answering our own questions with nonfiction. We are also reviewing context clues to help figure out the meaning of unknown words.

Writing Workshop: We are working on Lab Reports and writing like a scientist. We just did our first experiment with catapults and testing which would go farther when launched - a ping pong ball or cotton ball. We will be working on the lab reports all week and getting ready for a ramp and car experiment.

Math - We are assessing on money and will be working on measurement next. In addition to our Envision resource, we will be using some lessons and materials from Euerka math. Here is a link to the parent website if you would like to check it out! https://greatminds.org/math/parents.


Words Their Way: Students will work in differentiated groups in purple 2nd grade to learn new patterns and sorts.
