Memory Planning Sheets for timelines are due Wednesday, April 2nd. Students will use these planning sheets to guide them in writing about their life. This project is based on our Second Grade Social Studies Standards and allows students to really feel connected to the project at hand because it is about their life.
Our second graders have been learning about REGROUPING using two and three-digit addition. We have found a song on youtube that has helped our students understand the steps to take to regroup when adding numbers. Take a look----------You Carry Over
Our second graders are following The Last Great Race called the Iditarod.
We kicked off the Iditarod race this past Friday, February 28th. We read an Iditarod fact and infomational book, teaching students how to use our interactive musher board pictured below. Students will choose a musher, make a musher "moving stick" with the picture and information from the internet and use it to manipulative the interactive board, moving their musher according to the current standings each day. We then introduced the all-inspiring BALTO! They always love the dogs the most! Students also created pennants rooting for their musher. Check out our IditaRead activity that goes along with our unit study. The letter and log were adapted from the Educators portion of www.iditarod.com
