Meet the true ROCK STARS of Room 9! Our Sound Celebration with all second grade classes was a huge success as we played our instruments to some of our favorite songs. Check out the instruments that the musicians created below! It was neat to see recycled items turned into wonderful creations. I appreciate your support on this project!
“Three times the fun!” In math we are practicing how to add three digit numbers. This can be tricky but we are working hard! We can see how important it is to know place value for this type of math!
Second grade poets continue to blow me away with their enthusiasm and creativity in poetry. We used our five senses to interpret the poems we have been reading in Reader’s Workshop. We began by closing our eyes and visualizing what we read and then decided how our poems may smell, feel, taste and sound. It is amazing how we can use our senses to comprehend the emotions or feelings in reading poems. We took things even further and decided to use our senses while writing our own poems. This really brought out some creativity in many students. It turned some poems into songs or chants as well as encouraged students to add detail to simple ideas to make them come alive.
No job too big, no job too small...Second Graders can do it all! We are learning about Service Jobs in Social Studies. We learned the many different ways that service jobs can help members of the community. Second Graders even graphed their favorite jobs and what type of service they provide! Ask your second grader what they want to be when they grow up!
