Last week, the students completed book reports on a book they’ve read during their Daily 5 Read to Self and Read to Someone activities. On the inside, they wrote the details of the story, and then drew their own book cover on the outside.

Math

This week in Math, students reviewed concepts from the Math assessment. We worked a lot with patterns in number grids, and using them to count number patterns (counting by 2s, 10s, etc.).

Language Arts

With Read to Someone in full swing, this week students learned about how to read with a partner in two different ways: reading the same book together, or alternating reading different books to each other. Students learned how this improves their listening skills as well as their “reading muscles.”

Science

Students learned more about the skills that scientists use – namely, observe, predict, classify, and compare and contrast. They also completed a classification activity so they could use and see these skills in action.

Social Studies

Students primarily continued to collect examples of integrity on their worksheets and logs – it was great to see how many examples came from each other!

Math

Students practiced counting on a number grid, and finding and defining patterns in them. We also reviewed the math assessment from last week, which will go home for review next week.

Language Arts

We spent a lot of time this week practicing Read to Someone and discussing its importance. We learned how reading with a partner is not only fun, but it helps us improve our fluency and independence as well!

Science

In Science, students learned about what it means to be a scientist, and what it is that scientists do. What does a scientist look like? What to they do? Why are scientists and science important? These are all questions that students discussed and answered in class!

Social Studies

This week, we worked on our September character trait, which is Integrity. Students looked for examples of integrity in their story books and among their classmates.

Math

This week in Math, students explored the concept of greater than and less than. We also looked at different “names”, i.e. variations, of a given number. Students completed sorting activities with dominoes and number cards, and also completed their assessment of Unit 1.

Language Arts

It was an exciting week for Language Arts! In celebration of Reading Month, students from the Middle/High School came and read in small groups with the Grade 2 students. Additionally, this week we launched our Read to Someone portion of the Daily 5 framework, where students learn to read cooperatively.

Social Studies

Students were introduced to our character trait of the month, integrity. We watched a few short video examples of integrity, and learned to identify integrity in a variety of situations.

Science

We have begun our unit on The Nature of Science. Students have begun to explore what “science” means and what it is that scientists do.
