My mathematicians are digging into Chapter 1. This chapter deepens our understanding of place value. We learn lots of different ways to represent numbers. Some vocabulary from this chapter: digit, even, odd, value, expanded form, word form, standard form, base ten, doubles.
We're up next to assess with the Literacy Ladies. I'll be assessing alongside of them! Once we have all of our Sailors' updated reading levels, they'll be coming home with the correct leveled books. Currently they are choosing their own from the baggy book selection I have in the classroom. I'm so excited to start groups!
We've begun taking a closer look at our unit on plant and animal habitats. Soon they'll get a little dirty and plant their own grass!
Small Moments is first up in our new writing series. We launched it this week! Their writing grows so much during second grade. They'll be planning, drafting, editing, revising, and publishing all sorts of wonderful writing!
