Second Grade Room 214

Just another CUIP Schools weblog site

October 10th

We are half way through the 1st quarter!  Progress reports will go home Tuesday along with a field trip form.  If you need another Taffy Apple order form please let me know.

What is happening this week…

Reading Workshop:  students will analyze the characteristics of a folk tale and retell the message/lesson from the story. We will also be reading folk tales in guided reading groups practicing the reading strategy of retelling. Students will be given new word work words on Tuesday as well.

Writing Workshop:  Last week we took a few days to practice writing narratives about our Hyde Park walk. Students wrote with detail using their senses while we were in the neighborhood.  They also practiced using comparisons. This week we will pick back up with our own personal narratives and continue studying our mentor authors for writing moves.

Math:  We finished Unit 1 on Friday and will begin Unit 2 on Tuesday.   I will send a family letter home tomorrow explaining what students will be learning in this unit.  It also will give strategies for working with your child at home. This week we will be exploring place value, writing addition number stories, and explore doubles and combinations of 10 to build fact fluency.

Science:  Last week we made streams.  This week we will look at our landforms now that some time has passed to examine weathering and erosion. We will also analyze our water run off samples.

Social Studies:  This week we will study the different branches of government and continue to look at different neighborhoods in Chicago.
